correct me if i'm wrong, but don't physx cards use PCIe slots and not PCI?

EDIT: oh yeah, not enough RAM. i won't be considering one.

mobos warranty usually aren't as long as the memory warranty.
And if this mobo goes bad, and you can't use the memory for the new mobo.

TV tuner, PhysX (useless), RAID, 56K modem, more USB or IEEE 1394 ports. Including your two suggestions, I already used up 8 slots. Plus, if you have a fat card like 8800GTS/GTX, one of the PCI slots is covered.

Why is people concern about the heat-pipes? I mean if they help keep the chipset run at more cool temps, why not?

I could careless if they put heat-pipes all over the place, I don't stare at the motherboard while I browse.

My mobo seats in the case and the case it's under my desk, I haven't seen my GeForce 8800 GTX in over a months, I know it's there, so why would anyone care about how the MoBo looks?

And DuckieHo; unfortunately you have no clue what you're talking about 90% of the time, and all I have to say in this case you're within that 90%.

That ASUS boards sure looks way better than that DFI they showed last week.

A lot of us actually put our rig on our desks and see the inside everyday through the window.

And you haven't seen your stuffs over a month? Better grab a duster and start blowing it some time soon, I wouldn't even risk dust bunnies.

It's not flaming, I just know it, that's why I said: "All I have to say", and that's where it ends. I red most of the post and responses. Not just here but at other threads but in this case, it's Intel stuff, something which unfortunately has no sufficient knowledge about.

So, it begins and it ends.

Heat pipes FTL. I do not like seeing copper tubing spamming all over the board. The should just have separate heatsinks for the chips. This board would be good in barebone systems or prebuilt ready to go pc's not enthusiasts who like to choose their own ram.

1. Lack of precision. The heatpipes are not manufactured accurate enough and thus the heatsink assembly will not sit completely flat on all surfaces. Therefore you do not get good contact on all surfaces.
2. You cannot change out cooling easily when it is all integrated like that.
3. Clutter.
4. It doesn't work. Heatpipes (in this senerio) are no more effective than a plain heatsink. I think Swiftech proves that with a very effective NB cooler that has no heatpipes.

However, the most critical reasons are 1. and 2.
