Here is an image of teh MSI Big Bang Marshal P67+Hydra motherboard in it's glory with 8... count them 8 PCIe slots!!



Why you need 8 PCIe slots is beyond me, since any GPU worth it's weight is a dual slotted card, so actually, it is a 4-way SLI / Crossfire board IMO.

Here are some of the other features...
  • a 24-phase DrMOS PWM design
  • Military Class II components,
  • two 8-pin CPU power connectors and one 6-pin plug for supplying graphics cards
  • switches for disabling out PCIe x16 slots
  • voltage read points
  • three BIOS's.
  • OC Genie II one-button overclocking function
  • four SATA 6.0 Gbps and four SATA 3.0 Gbps ports
  • eight USB 3.0 connectors
  • dual Gigabit Ethernet
  • 7.1 channel audio
  • two eSATA ports
  • Power, Reset, Clear CMOS and OC buttons
  • the ClickBIOS (UEFI).

    Straight up teasing me!!! I am waiting for Sandy Bridge release to buy a motherboard/CPU. Will likely go with the ASUS P67 Deluxe and i7 2600K and every second that goes by is killing me because I have everything else ready to go!

    Rig will be as follows:

    Cooler Master HAF 922
    Corsair HX 850
    ASUS P67 Deluxe
    Intel i7 2600K
    ASUS GTX 570 X 2
    G.Skill DDR3-1600 4GB CL 7
    Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
    Crucial 64 GB SSD SATA-6

    I will stick with Stock cooling for now until I need better...

    Any Idea on what the price will be for the MSI Big Bang Marshal P67+Hydra motherboard?

    HA! LOL, I am going from ASUS P5Q Pro P45 with Q6600 to Sandy Bridge so i can safely say it is within respectable bounds of a well deserved upgrade. Don't get me wrong, P45 and Core 2 Quad was VERY nice to me but I get the feeling that the setup in my previous post will serve me well for at least 3 years without even the slightest prospect of an upgrade... That is, unless every future game released is using the same engine as Crysis. :sarcastic: 

    Ps. Who you callin a slut, i prefer whore :kaola:

    I think I'll go with the Gigabyte P67 boards but not sure if I want to upgrade from my i5 750+GA-P55A-UD4P It's working fine for me now and the only reason I would upgrade would be to brag

    I'm definitely not buying SB now I'm waiting for the LGA 1366 replacement (I'm going to upgrade to a 30'' ultrasharp after I get that board and a screaming graphics card)
