I never said the PCB were exactly the same. That is insane. I was referring to the base shape of the board. All the G1 boards are slightly wider than standard ATX.

As for the makeup of the actual PCB, neither you nor I work for Gigabyte so I doubt we would know the exact composition of their PCBs.

i think the issue with these PCI-E guys is that they have never seen the X58 G1 Assassin.

People this is the second series for G1 Killer boards. I have an assassin and the Sniper 2 i will be comparing face to face.

this.

and it is a great looking board...

way to late to the 1555 market.

You're kidding right? I have seen all your G1 boards, I was only commenting about the spaces around the board which should be more useful for slots or additional changes needed. But all in all, its your board/company, so not my decision to make. Just sayin.

Like the 1366 G1 boards? Not late at all in comparison. Especially given that enthusiast socket parts won't be out for 4 months or so.

Can't agree with that. LGA1155 is going to be around for a while yet.

I was starting to get depressed because it seems for the the life of me i can't find a new mobo for my setup so i can dump my X58A-UD3R, i want to revamp but it looks like even on the new socket they don't give enough PCI and SATA ports.

For the love of mike what is it going to take for a company to come out with a board that can handle more then one GPU and can still allow for the other ports to be utilized when running multiple GPU's and not have a $400+ price tag?

PS: If anyone has any suggestions for me as far as mobo's go with my setup feel free to post a reply lol
