The 1156 socket was not made to be the enthusiast top of the line hardware so you can't expect those features. The 1366 is the enthusiast socket which is why there is no hex-core processor for the 1156 socket. Having 16x 16x is a feature not typical of P55 boards and that's why they need a special chip for them and it isn't something that everyone really cares about. If they did care all that much they would've just gone with the 1366 socket.
I realize everyday more and more that I should have went with the 1366 socket. This is my first build in several years and was not expecting to get as much into as I am now. When I first built this setup, I didn't care much went into it because I knew it would destroy what I had (Athlon 3800+). Now, all I want to do is buy computer parts and build them. I still am thinking about going to the 1366 socket but I would end up spending more than I can justify when I can simply buy a new motherboard and be good for a while.

I gotta admit, that's a tough one, especially with Sandy Bridge being released.

But if there's one thing I've learned from reading a LOT of threads here in OCN, is if you can find a great buyer with a great price offer, go sell your rig and buy a new one. (Only reason I said this is cause I am CHEAP as hell)

But it still all depends on you.

Has anyone had any experience overclocking the MSI Fuzion?

I was the same way when I upgraded to AM3. I should have went 1366. But decided to go from AM3 to 1156. While in gaming the performance is similar, elsewhere its really really good.

It also multi-tasks really well. I have had recently the "switch" bug to try 1366, but I haven't. You really need A LOT to get potential out of it.

I know what you were saying earlier about having USB 3.0 and SATA 3 is more about principle than usage, but really if you aren't going to be using it then why bother? You can just buy a PCI-E card when you actually need it, which for most people won't be for a while.

Even with SLI x8/x8 is good for GTX 480s. It's only in SLI/Crossfire where HIGH END cards are starting to saturate the bus speed, even then it wont be for another generation or two where it will make a difference between x8/x8 and x16/x16. And that's high end.

My advice is stay 1156. HOWEVER, if you do have the money to spare and it won't be too much of a hassle, then just switch to 1366. You won't notice any difference right away, but at least you'll be set for when the 980x drops in price or some other hex core 1366. Those things really are beastly.

If you want x16/x16, you'll have to get a board with the NF200 chip. Here are a couple to choose from, although the UD7 is the only one that has USB 3.0 and SATA 6GB/s as far as I know.

eVGA P55 Classified 200
eVGA P55 FTW 200
Gigabyte P55A-UD7

The MSI P55a Fuzion does both as well which is what I am considering.
