and M4E will have the ROG version of AI Suite II which is very cool, especially the DIGI+VRM and loadline calibration options. :) I'll have an AI Suite II video/overview up today in the Crosshair IV Extreme sub-forum

Goodlooking MoBo and lots of features like Rampage III Extreme.
It's look like dual-channel DDR3 slots, why not 3 or 4? xD
Any info about the FSB and the release date?
Thanks!

OK I thought it was dual-channel because the Intel Sandy Bridge socket 1155 supports dual-channel slots configuration.

m4e is dual channel. not quad channel. it can fit 4 sticks of memory but does not mean its a quad channel.

I think Asus is readying 17 different 6-series motherboards for Sandy Bridge. Of the 17, 10 will be based on the P67 chipset, which won't work with Sandy Bridge's integrated graphics. Six boards will use the graphics-ready H67 chipset, while one is slated to incorporate its business-focused twin, the Q67.

I'm going to purchase this mobo for my next rig in january but does this board support RevoDrive X2 PCI-Express SSD (100GB) for use as primary boot drive?


Nevermind, I found my answer xD

A release date would be awsome. or even a time frame.
