Goddamn it, will it ever go away! Why can't these companies get rid of these irritating third and fourth power connectors?!

Hmm. I wonder if that northbridge can accommodate a water block such as the EK Asus3? The mounting holes' placements seem right...

I'd love to get my hands on that motherboard.

I knew that PCI-E placement look like crap when I first saw this, good to hear they came to thier senses. Now let this thing come out and see if it competes with the Asus X48 that Anandtech is so hot about .

Yes they can be removed. It saves having to send the whole motherboard off to get the BIOS chip flashed. They did this also on the S939 NF4 boards (maybe others also)

Also it means that you can request preloaded BIOS chips (with the BIOS version you want) from the likes of badflash.com without having to even remove your motherboard from your case

Theoretically you could have numerous chips flashed with differing BIOS and swap them out as and when you like.

that has always been something that DFI do... i believe it gives the board more power so it should be more stable

Excellent information, thanks. Yeah, I managed to miss most of the nForce 4 generation, I was still chugging away on my Athlon XP 1500+ at that point, sort of out of the hardware loop.

Still, it would definitely be nice if DFI included a spare BIOS chip, that would really help make it a feature a lot of people will love.

With my DFI NF4 motherboard, I had a second programmed bios chip on hand just for emergencies.

Nah, the old and new have the same features. You're right about the VRM being moved though.

Where's the pizo speaker on the new board? You can see the leads for it next to the memory slots.

There was a fan header next to the CPU's PWM one. Now there are two next to the USB headers.
Once again...
