You could turn it into a folding rig, or give it away tongue.gif

But I know how you feel, I'd love to upgrade to this but what to do with my sig rig? Might give it to dad.. or a brother...

I would get one. It depends on the price and tbh I have no need for all these PCI-e lanes.
I just need the raw CPU power no quad-fire ready board frown.gif
Besides it should be the wickedest board out there, no doubt!

Where did you read that? I've been looking everywhere for a release date.

Do you know what processors will be available?

If Asus was smart they'd release it alongside the SB-E lineup on the 14th. I personally don't plan on waiting and if this so happens to not be available on the 14th or right around it, then I may try something else. I really hope not though, this mobo is much more appealing than any others I've seen...besides the SR-3 but that's a totally different discussion.

See above. Again, they'd be silly not to release it alongside the new chips... >.>

Also for everyone not sure what to do with their old rigs, just throw 'em on CL. Hell I put mine up there for a week at a slightly ridiculous price and it sold. Or is pending sale anyway, the guy said he is 100% serious, he's picking it up and paying me the weekend after I get back from Europe on the 9th. AKA a reason for me to keep it and continue to fold on during the folding forum wars wink.gif

I'm relying on that sale going through for pretty much everything SB-E redface.gif

that spacing looks really good on the PCI-E slots, im wondering though would it be able to handle 4 MSI Lightning Extremes? The Maximus IV Extreme barely handles my 3 and i have to use silicon spacers to keep the fans from coming into contact with the subsequent pcb.

I am really looking into going with SB-E in January and if these can handle 4 LEs with easy i would be very happy.

EDIT: Also a quick question will SB-E also be 22nm like Ivy Bridge, or is that the sole purpose of Ivy bridge, the fact that it is actual 22nm?

No, its 32nm like SB.

So i am guessing holding out for IB-E would be where its at, having the same or better processing power/clocks on a 22nm die?
