Oh, NM, checked myself.
Yep, this is the one I kept telling everyone to wait for. This board will whup any Marvell controlled board on the market. Should O/C to 4.5Ghz with any good Bloomfield proc too!
Esp, the six / twelve hyper cores! Personally, I wouldn't pay early release price though. Wait untill they mass market, then jump on it. Well worth it from what my resourses say.
If you do get one now, get the express warranty, where they send you a new one before you ship yours in. Also well worth it. Look at Anantech & you'll see why they went for the full 2.4Ghz Ram spec. With onboard cooling and a nice even room temp this baby will run others into the ground!
LOL. Isn't she beastly? (and I mean that in the sweetest was possible)
Unlikely it'll fit the Scout without modification.
Looks like I found the board for build 2...probably gonna go Haf-X.
Going to hold off on it for now.
I'll let the early release buyers (aka guinea pigs) have their say @ newegg.
