    Oh-my-god... I've been waiting to see a dual or quad processor board just show up. It was something I considered 10 years ago. Just insane. I'd need T-1 to do this any justice.

    This reminds me of the time I went shopping for my first computer and wound up calling Sun. Too much stuff! Way out of my league!

    thanks for the explanation. I was curious why it didn't work with the 9xx series.

    Woah. This is a monster for the ages. 48 gigs of ram, 12 processors. I don't see how this will be surpassed anywhere in the next 10 years. Don't get me wrong I know that roughly every 6 months capability doubles, but when we hit 4 gigs of ram and 3.2ghz duel core processors we started to think we were cresting the wave of human perception and speed of the machine. Now we've proven that wrong just look at vista and its ability to turn that figure into a whimpering child thats lagged out in the corner. But come on fellas, I was just sweating over the new gateway fx series with 16gigs of ram and the i7 quad core. THAT machines not likely to be outclassed by your run of the mill machines for at least another 5 years and its what 1/3 the capabilities of this mobo? Going by that logic whoever buys this motherboard will have it melt down and turn to dust before it gets matched by any of the major "consumer" companies daily/performance computers, find out its lifetime, because thats about the only limitation this thing seems to have in the foreseeable next decade.
  4. I want one, the funny thing is, even a beast of a mobo like this, will still run crysis like crap.

    D*MN is all i can say, (drooling)......
  6. Not sure if anyone mentioned it but yes, "mountain mods" not only makes their gargantuous cube cases that will fit this mobo but they make a special rear end mount for it as well.

    My next build will be in a mountain mod case since they will hold absolutely any hardware on the market today and in the foreseeable future.
  7. ok ok ok!!!! Is this going to hit the market or what? I wanna see some benches please!! I love you EVGA!

    Hunt around there are a few SR-2 's up and running
    Xtremesystems (start from post #471) have a few members with the board as do EVGA's forum guys I believe. These people are basically beta testers for the board which is why no tech site has the board for review yet.

    A CPU-Z validation here
  9. You can play ALL the games at the same time :)
  10. To see this motherboard loaded out and benched on water.....

  11. there are very few cases, i have mine in a mountian mod's Extended Ascension CYO with an hptx tray, but that alone is a hefty price

    70 % of people here are "omg I want so bad I wish I could afford it," but all of them wouldnt know what to do with it if they had it.
  13. For those who dont know intel bought nvidia so they are the same company

  16. 1400W? Global warming ftw!
  17. In terms of pricing for motherboards, 600 bucks isnt bad. The processors and gfx cards are what will tear you a new one. But for those of us out there looking to build a powerful computer that wont be consididered obsilete for at least 5 years or more, the price is nothing.
  18. I was a student @ UF in the early 1990's. It was not uncommon to spend close to 2k for a computer system back then. Fast forward to present day and consider the depressed value of the dollar and look at what you can get for 2k. This system ISN'T really that expensive.
  19. Overkill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
