Is it just me or are those boards NOT quad channel?

What makes you think they aren't?

SAS ports of that type do, yes, but it's not very common for a consumer board to have them (besides these new X79s where 8 SAS ports are bloody standard. talk about the good kind of overkill...), and the ones that do need third-party controllers to do it, and only have 2 such ports; examples are the non-GTI Blood Rage and the original Asus P6T Deluxe.

No actual northbridge, but yes, there's still a southbridge.

Given the size of the socket, Aftermarket CPU HSF manufacturers are going to need completely new/significantly redesigned heatsinks anyway if you go X79. those are Standard ATX size boards, maybe even a bit bigger, and look at how much space that socket is taking up. These are going to be MASSIVE chips. I mean, considering the X79 LGA2011 has nearly twice as many pins as LGA1155, its to be expected. But still, talk about massive. These aren't products aimed at budget builders and weekend gamers. This is serious hardware that will cost serious cash. They probably DO expect you to buy all new. Keep in mind 1156 and 1366 were transition products between LGA775 and the 1155/2011 boards so that Intel could consolidate silicon onto the CPU and away from the North/Southbridge chipsets.

Also, only one DIMM per channel now? Not too concerned as you can still get 16GB spread across 4 channels on these boards for a decent price, just wasn't expecting only 4 slots.
There may be 8 slots later, but it will be troubling for people that come from 6 DIMM setups and want a X79 setup when it comes out. 2011 socket may not be much bigger as you describe. As you add each pin, the rate at which the total length of the square(is it square?) socket grows decreases. 2011 vs 1366 is only 645 pins. I'll compare the sizes of each based off the DDR3 slots as measuring sticks.

I matched the length of the DDR3 slots in this image to within .3% accuracy. As you can see, the 2011 slot is exactly 25% larger in width (25.18% within .3% accuracy), while it has 47% more pins.

That would be a disappointment... may as well go with 1155 setup if you don't need PCIE 3.0. You can mix and match DIMM slot numbers though, so these are probably quad channel boards. That X58 board in the image above has 4 slots instead of 6. The white slots go to channels 0, 1 and 2. The blue slot is tacked on channel 1 I think.

I wonder why they chose yellow for the ES board? Why not just keep it green if the colour doesn't matter?
post #158 of 289
interesting stuff. The layout of the ram doesnt bother me since im on water but i was expecting to see 8 slots, dont want to step down from 6 (its nice being able to throw in a bunch of smaller capacity chips as its usually cheaper)

i freaking love how many SATA ports there are, my current board has 9 and i dont think its enough. I just hope they are on 1 or maybe 2 controllers max because the issue with my current ports is that those 9 ports are divided up on 3 controllers which makes multiple drive raid arrays a pain

the layout seems to cry EATA though. I just glance at my 1366 board with 6 ram slots and cant imagine that socket 2011 with 8 slots on a standard ATA board

Looks like it would clear the RAM, even modules with reasonably large fins, and provide airflow over both banks. No mention of socket compatibility in the video, but I wouldn't be surprised if this cooler was designed with these new boards in mind.

They also have a new LGA2011 mounting bracket on display.
Ya it looks like a few of those are designed specifically to clear the RAM on either side of a Z79 board.

That certainly wouldn't make sense, I mean there's a much larger pin count on these sockets.
