I like the Foxconn heatsinks...they look really clean on the board...I don't really like the Red PCB though...but it may work out for someone with a red case Computer project

The Crossfire guys will love it, I bet.

Personally I like the abit best. Now third party manufacturers just need to commit sacrilege and make 'Intel Edition' ATI cards with black or dark blue PCBs and black/white accents on the cooler.

More from the Inquirer. They have some server board shots too and a few anecdotes from the floor..

INTEL WAS EXPECTED to start showing off its next milestone, the Nehalem platform, more during Computex, and that's exactly what happened: while various vendors were showing Nehalem mobos (usually behind closed doors) Intel simply displayed one or two Nehalem boards from each major OEM, all on a pretty big wall in their new Nangang hall booth - yes, for everyone to see.

The desktop boards were (barely) hidden under the X48 sign, with clear board name and obvious elongated Nehalem sockets there. But, unmistakably, you could recognise the enlarged CPU socket and the smallish X58 TylersburgDT chipset - no more memory controller and FSB in the chipset means no more chipset overclocking needed.
Quote:
Overall, the boards seem production ready, the PC and dual-socket " Skulltra il 2" follow ups will support XMP enthusiast memory timings as well, and the new heat sinks and cooling systems for the biggie LGA1366 sockets are right there too.

Chris "Fugger", Shamino, Kingpin and the rest of the top overclockers at the Foxconn "Quantum Force" booth also seem to have good words in for the Nehalem's clocks - but first take a look at their Penryn E-0 stepping overclocks tomorrow at the said location. Can anyone say 6.5 GHz quad-core?

In summary, Nehalem is there. As the clock speeds seem to have dramatically improved to the point that Intel can launch a 3.6 GHz Yorkfield or Harpertown Penryns without affecting the Nehalem benchmarketing, we can expect the initial rollout real soon now.
Mm, Penryn E0 stepping might be interesting for those who already have a 775 platform but I'm waiting for this. I'd like to hear what the extreme overclockers have to say about Nehalem.
