I do not like where the ramm slots are located on the motherboards.

It's Intel spec, better get used to it or wait for an eVGA Classified.

Early engineering sample. Won't look like that when it hits retail.

I think it's very politically correct to guarantee that everybody will have some blocked memory slots. Time for all of you to start using watercooling.

This was what I was most surprised at. I didn't think it was going to be ready to ship.

Supposedly it has twice the throughput of PCI-Express 2.0 and 2.1.

Very nice.

It's got nothing to do with looks.

Integrated memory controller and fast memory means trace lengths to (and within) the CPU are a huge limitation. Putting all the DIMMs on one side would likely cause latency and clock problems, not to mention requiring a ridiculous number of layers on the PCB to route all the traces.

Yep.

No, not the reason.

The Noctua has pretty good clearance, but you'd have to remove the cooler to get the ram out, most likely, and super tall sticks wouldn't work.

If ram slots are together you lose one, maybe two...but like this you lose most of them.
Been explained already.

Also, Intel likely doesn't give a toss about aftermarket enthusiast cooler compatibility on their workstation/server socket.

They likely don't care what it looks like either.

There are four sides to a square.

Power = top
Memory = left and right
QPI/DMI/PCI-E = bottom

I see plenty of room for a quality VRM. If anything it will just force manufactuers to rely on quality of components instead of quantity of components. 6-8 phases will fit fine and is more than plenty if done right.

NB has been integrated into the CPU for years.

The X79 is a glorified southbridge, just like the 6 series chipsets.

That's what the X79 is.
