No reason for Tripple channel memory when they are getting 50% more throughput on Dual Channel with a new design. That way if I cant keep my AM3 socket and need a new MB, I at least still use the 8 Gigs of memory I have.

All MB have ADD but, it seams like Gigabyte has shifted all its support from AMD to Intel. I have not had any problems or a need for more updates (although there are some that have) but the lack of updates/support in reference to the x6 chips that Gigabyte had on their AMD MB's vs other manufactures was night and day. Low cost boards I can see, but on a flagship/high end AMD MB you would hope for some support on that $250 you spent.

Either way, I will get any board what ever I think is the best... I have never had any issues with my MB over the last 10 years that was fixed with a BIOS update... hopefully all BD will be UEFI so BIOS updates will be a different type of monster.

Edit:

Dont know why people have such a problem with the look... You have a south bridge... you need a heat sink on it to be low profile so you can have multi large GPU's sitting over it... so a large flat square heat sink works, the SB does less work now-days so no longer need heat pipes. You have a PWM and a North Bridge that need to be cooled and should be linked via heat pipes... there are only so may designs that are both "stylish" and effective. You want the NB heat sink to also be low profile or at least graded so if you have a large after-market air cooler on your GPU you can have it in the top slot and not have clearance with the heat sink,

The real question is, do the MOSFETs double as cigarette lighters?

Looks nice. I wonder what kind of phasing system it has. It looks like an 8+2

Apparently it's the same size as the current AM3 socket since it's compatible with current AM3 CPU's.

My only hope is to find a 990FX motherboard with 10 SATA ports, 4 x PCI 16x slots, 6 - 8 USB ports on the rear, Dual Gigabit NICS, and black PCB.

Here's hoping Gigabyte answers my prayers or I'll even buy an ASUS product if they give me what I want.
I know what you mean. I used to use all four of my SATA ports on my RAID0 array. (Though now I use 0 SATA ports.) So I had to use an IDE DVD drive (until I ripped it out.)

Also, checked for others and didn't find any so please report if it's a repost.

EDIT: also, forgot to point out that I THINK that's USB 3.0 (for the front I/O) next to the SATA.
If this comes out within the next 6 months I will prolly be going AMD Bulldozer.....
