this better cost the same as the the last crosshair, think the the thunderbolt card is unnecessary, so would get without.

I m hoping the 6 core bulldozer is as good as 2600k, I expect bulldozer v2 to be a big improvement so will probably get 6 core to tide me over

huh?

Don't see what that has to do with the price of fish???

Not everyone water cools their pc, like poke.gifYOU for instance!!! And even then, not everyone who water cools, water cools their VRM, probably hardly anyone.

And on the crosshair iv the only way to run 2x16 is to use the first 2 pci-e slots? That sucks as it means no space between 2 slot cards! What happens if you put the cards in the first and third slot on the crosshair iv? 2x8 mode or 1x16 1x8 mode? I am so confused. frown.gif

Might be gigabyte for me. ASUS, I am disappoint. frown.gif

No on the CHIV you need to use slot 1 and 3 for x16/x16.

Did anyone notice the new HSF bracket?? it's not a full bracket like the AM3 on down?

EDIT: I went back and looked at all the preview pics of the other upcoming AM3+ boards and they have this same bracket.
