I have the same worry, but all the photos I've seen show the top and the 3rd (not second) PCIE ports to be X16 (although the bit-tech review tells a different story).

http://images.bit-tech.net/content_i...formula-6b.jpg

So, top to bottom, we have PCIE X16_1, then PCI, then PCIE X8/X1_2, then PCI, then PCIE X16/X8_3 and finally X4_4. So, if I crossfire two 5850s, I presume I could use either the lower PCI or the 2nd PCIE port, depending on the fact if I keep my X-FI Extreme Music or go for some PCIE card (e.g. like Xonar Essence STX).

BTW, though I don't think it offers much more than M4A89GTD PRO (or whatever is the name of the regular board), especially for about 50% more money. But, it most certainly DOES LOOK AWESOME; I've been waiting for a board like this for like forever so I'm buying this one for sure. Finally a worthy (well, more like worthy-looking ) replacement for my M2N-SLI Deluxe. M4A89GTD Pro looks plain awful IMHO (reminds me more of some ugly Gigabyte board rather than an Asus one).

Then I just need some red-coloured Ripjaws RAM and the Fortress FT-02 case and I'm set. Not sure about the CPU cooler, though..

This was my first ROG board ever, and I am sold on the series now.

Especially the onboard sound, it rocks. I'm trippin' balls right now on how awesome it is.

they are expecting news on them. the store has an order for 20 of them in (one with my name on it ) and they got a letter today saying that they should be on the look out for "upcoming news" what ever that means

EDIT: if i were to venture a guess i would say it probably has something to do with the lack of press release with regards to the extreme version dates and specs and prices

Thanx for clarifying Striker. Do you by chance have a guess at the time frame we are looking at here? A week before I can order too?

i honestly dont have any idea.... you guys know what i know

i think the reason they got any thing from Asus is that like half the staff want the board for their rigs and they have pre orders on a couple more and the management keeps sending letters and e-mails asking about them

LOL Alright, but just so you guys know what Im working with right now; the processing power of my setup is not that far from a calculator :s I have here a Pentium 4 2.8Ghz (Yes, that old dinosaur!) Radeon 9800 Pro (if you can even remember this bad boy), 1 Gig of crap ram, ZERO cooling and a green case that looks like a coffin! :O

Out of everyone here I think I need the upgrade the most

Anyones speakers popping when PC turns on/off, when recieving IM's etc.....?

Anyone know a fix? Issue is exactly like this for another MB ASUS has.

Driver issue

Getting a little annoying.


EDIT: Nevermind, Driver reinstall resolved the issue

EDIT 2: Still popping
