if they prevent overclocking I will not buy it no matter how amazingly good it is.
It has already been tested and OC'd on a couple sites but not very much though..has anyone seen the ridiculous multiplier these things are running.

Oh good, I see they have 3 channel mem. That means that my current redlines are NFG. I'll be holding off a while on these but still nice to see improvements.
I don't think Nehalem's memory controller is even compatible with DDR2. Early adopters' credit cards are going to have to bite three sticks of DDR3 on top of everything else.

Ugh. I don't know why they went with Triple Channel. Three just looks "odd". They should've spent time on Quad Channel, kind of how like they upgraded from Dual Core to Quad Core. It'll look weird buying a 3x2GB kit.

I cant wait to see some real benches, but I dont think I'll bite the early adopter fee.... It would need to beat my Qx9650 by a very large margin for me to think about it. also, I am not a fan of 300 $ Mobo, even if they are sooo sexy. I think I will wait for something like P55 or something. But still, everytime a new cpu comes out I cant wait to see review.

Last info I got was after the 15th of november, that is soon...

Umm it's the same exact memory for triple channel, just three sticks not two, so current ddr3 will be fine if you have three sticks of it. And early adopters should be biting 6x1gb of DDR3 if you ask me!

Jesus, look at the specs on that baby.
Quad Crossfire and 3-way SLI + PhysX with four PCIe 2.0 slots,
3 channel DDR3 memory up to 1800MHz (oc),
14 phase hybrid PWM and DirectFET MOSFET technology,
4in1 Quantum cooler that provides modular NB/SB/VRM cooling solution with interchangeable NB chooling adaptors for air/water or extreme cooling.
There is also a QF Panel for on-the-fly overclocking from the 5.25" drive bay and a Quantum BIOS with all the OC options. The audio aspect seems pretty neat with SONAR X-Fi sound card comes bundled.
There is also a Serial Attached SCCI interface too.

Wow smoking board.....I have to say I was a little disappointed at the Asus Rampage Extreme 2 it looks more like a formula branded product..oh well that Blood Red board looks crazy......literally like eat your face kinda crazy.......seems like they should drop it at Halloween or something I hope it lives up to its specs and looks...Foxconn high end boards have been pretty solid in the past thought so it looks good. ....

You guessed wrong. Intel's X58 Somethingsomething (named after some town in Pennsylvania; Bonetrail successor) is CDN$350, Core i7 920 is CDN$390.
