I just finished the article on x58 boards, and got curious when I read that the BI-600 supports 4x 8 pcie 2.0 slots. When I look at pics of the board, the middle two slots look so close together. Is it really able to hold "real" single slot cards? Like a 4850 as an example. Anyone done this? How's the heat? Is it stable otherwise?

Well, based on what you've described, only low-profile cards are probably the only ones that can fit side-by-side. In any case, if you're planning to populate this mobo with expansion cards, perhaps you can make use of slot ribbons?
Had no idea such things existed. Cool. Thanks for the idea.
