That hardware monitor seems a bit gimmicky but the ability to turn your computer on from your cell phone (also a bit gimmicky) as you enter your house seems pretty awesome to me. By the time you're already comfortable your rig is up and running and waiting for you so +1 for saving the min it would normally take. The ability to flash your bios back to an earlier state with the press of a button and a usb stick is what impressed me the most and it really is an amazing feature. I might consider upgrading in a few months if theres ever a possible price drop or sale .

So are no NF200 in the final build? I have an X-Fire setup so if I run my 8800GT as a physx card and an asus xonar essence on the other x16 slots its gonna be switched to x8/x8/x8/x8 or do I have a choice in the BIOS to how it's switched?

NF200 would be a deal killer for me because i want that chip on any board i buy.

I had the ASUS WS P6T7 motherboard in hand, and I chose the R2E over it. The NF200 will only really be utilized for workstations as 3-card setups seem to run pretty poorly. I sold the P6T7 and stuck with the R2E because of all the other features the ROG boards offer. I wouldn't discount the R3E just because it doesnt have an NF200. The board does have a PLX bridge chip which seems to act like the NF200. After all, you can run 3 cards with x16 lanes.

Very good points eric. Anything more then 3 cards really isn't even needed these days

Thats why you buy an new sound card! The SupremeFX is just onboard anyway, the "X-fi" SupremeFX just emulates EAX. The card uses an onboard realtek chip.

Good points, but... everything I've read points to the Rampage III Extreme having the nF200 bridge for the graphics cards, not a PLX bridge.

Edit; caught up on the topic on other forums, looks like they cut out the nF200 bridge. Still, there's the possibility that they'll have a revision later with the bridge in place. However I haven't been able to determine if there's a PLX bridge or not... I would assume so since USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0Gbps would be using tons of bandwidth.

Some guy at XS has 2 revisions of the board, one with nF200 and one without nF200. He said ASUS took away the chip and replaced it. There are a lot of pictures of the R3E with the nF200 on it though.
