The latest and upcoming X79 Deluxe motherboard from ASUS has been unveiled, featuring improved components and support for the upcoming Ivy Bridge-E processors. While Ivy Bridge-E is supported and backwards compatible with the LGA 2011 socketed motherboards that released with Sandy Bridge-E processors, users are still required to update their BIOS to add support.

My favorite colors.

Oh great another x79 board without heatsinks on the VRM again great mad.gif. There is going to be some thermal throttling at high clock speeds especially with the 6 cores, going to be gin ghettoing fans to the pseudo-heatsink again.

I would complain about the colour but the sabertooth is just as bad biggrin.gif

Not sure what you're talking about. It definitely does have massive heatsinks on the VRM and MosFET area, it is just physically in a different location as compared to the vanilla P9X79 motherboard.

I have the P9X79 Pro, which has almost identical heatsink and PCB layout with this.
I do 4.7GHz on air with a 3930K folding 24/7 (when I'm home, i drop it @ 10 threads). Doesn't sound that bad of a VRM dissipation system tbh.
Are the VRMs hot? Ofc, darn hot, especially the little bar/heatsink bridge in the back of the board...is it unstable? Not rly. I do the above in an unconditioned room in SoCal.

The lump of metal on the VRM and MosFET area is not a heatsink, heatsinks have fins to aid with heat dissipation. Look at the high end CPU heatsinks, they are all have fins, unlike the "heatsink" on this motherboard.

The CPU fan headers don't have the 3-pin/4-pin detection latch.

North America and Europe may hate the gold colored motherboards, but according to ASUS forums China and the Middle East cannot get enough, very popular.

And that's alot of enthusiasts. smile.gif
