Windows 7: First X79 Chipset board Images

I noticed that Asrock and Gigabyte boards don't have dimms on both sides of the CPU, most of the rest do. Also, some of the boards have the pcie slots awful close to the dimms.

Be nice to have some idea on prices, both for the boards and chips. As it suggests they'll probably start with a high end CPU. I don't know why they'd do this. You would have thought an absolutely cracking CPU in the mid to enthusiast section of the market would guarantee success as it would impact on both ends of the market. People would wait for a budget or top end chip.
I'm thinking about the way the Q6600 was an affordable revelation when it appeared.

Glad they are going with PCIe-3 as it has twice the speed of PCIe-2. Hopefully AMD will come out with a new chipset with PCIe-3 also. Also supports quad memory channels which is on the CPU. Interesting developments.

Hey! how about this folks. Could it be that I could buy a new mobo, put my 1366 i7 in it and run that while I save up (or sell a kidney) for an Ivy Bridge chip?

I think you will need an awful big case though. That has to be a big board.

That's extremely interesting, though I'd be a bit worried about compatibility/performance issues with the two different sockets. Memory issues would be another concern as the new format calls for quad channel memory whereas the 1366 spec is triple channel memory.

Be nice if they could pull it off; though I won't hold my breath waiting for it to happen.

Yeah, but I'd imagine a Coolermaster HAF X or Corsair Obsidian 700/800D would have no problem hosting those boards.

Also, as someone noted, we could see a whole host of newly designed aftermarket CPU coolers as I'd imaging the new locations of the memory slots is going to play havoc with some of (my Noctua NH-C12P SE14) the current aftermarket CPU coolers

Sygnus, I read somewhere that Noctura is coming out with a new version of the DH-14 that will provide space for the ram.

Yeah I’m not surprised - if anybody's happy to see a new board design it's the aftermarket CPU cooler guys

I think if you look at the image Asus has put two Dimm slots either side of the 2011 socket (which seems to be necessary) and three Dimms next to the 1366 socket.
I would have thought it would be impossible to run two different architecture chips simultaneously anyway. They couldn't "talk" to each other, could they?

So I reckon that if they made it, it's only purpose would be as a more painfree upgrade path.
I think people are fed up with having to get a new mobo when they upgrade CPU and it would sell and encourage people to go for the upgrade.

I'd dream about it
