    He he, I guess nodens posted what he did as the post implied that these things were optional on a platform that supports such things natively.

    I wonder what the chances are of a 2nd USB3 header being added as one of the design changes b4 release

    Any chance of this board coming in below $420? Oh do I hope so. I really can't see it being more than $150 more than the Max Formula, but then again who knows. This is my dream board, but I hope I can afford it. At least I have an X79 build already so can upgrade one component at a time. I hate this ASrock board I am using, no that its horrible, but average and bios are horrible.

    I need to join the ROG community, it's long overdue!!

    I use to think ROG components were not worth the premium price, but I have seen the light. This was my first high end build, and had no clue to the features and benefits. I won't make this mistake again and I am looking forward to the new build built on this Black Edition.

    This board is an upgraded/updated version of the RIVE. Not the Formula. The RIVE goes on Newegg for about $420, so I'd say there's a 0% chance of this being less. Under $500 would be nice though

    The RIVE comes with 5x phys X16, and the OC key which inflates the price a bit, but then again this may come with a OC Panel. I think this will not come with a OC Panel, so they may be able keep the price down. This is not a limited edition board, so they want to sell as many as possible. In theory anyway.

    This will be a standard X16/X16 or X8/X8/X8/X8 board so there is no extra X16 by 4 chipset, this should keep the cost down a tad. I think people are going to be surprised at the pricepoint on this. Vegas over/under is $460. I'm taking the under. LOL.

    Added: I will say this; This is one impressive board, I dont think they wasted a mm of space, a marvel of engineering, certainly worth the price, whatever that be. I am so glad they decided to release a IB-E updated board.

    It will most likely have the OC Panel. The board has a ROG_EXT header.

    This will be a standard X16/X16 or X8/X8/X8/X8 board so there is no extra X16 by 4 chipset, this should keep the cost down a tad. I think people are going to be surprised at the pricepoint on this. Vegas over/under is $460. I'm taking the under. LOL.
    Not really. I believe the PCIe configuration for the 4 x16 slots will be identical to the RIVE:
    4 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 or dual x16 or x16/x8/x16 or x16/x8/x8/x8, red) *1


    The difference you are seeing in slots are the extra x16 mechanical slot (that operated x8) that is now an open-ended x1 slot. Making an educated guess this is done due to the additional SATA3 channels. The lanes have been redirected to SATA. The original RIVE had the extra Asmedia controller on a single lane. That made the controller slow. With existing configuration it would be impossible to add the additional SATA3 ports. So this is how it's done. You can also expect the third party controllers to be faster now.


    Bottom line is do not expect this board to be cheaper than the original RIVE. If anything this board is more expensive to make due to the new FETs, VRM heatpipe design and PCH heatsink.

    Waterblock question: I know the chipsetblock will be needed to come in a new revision to match the board. But will the standard 2011 cpu block fit? EK should make them look all full nickel imo.. (will get shot for saying this but...) bling bling

    Well if EK only made full nickel, then alot of loops would stop using EK blocks, including my current loop =) corrosion, corrosion. The chipset block may or may not fit. I'm not sure. It looks like it might be compatible. The Mosfet block def won't fit, it's also not needed though apparently. And LGA2011 blocks will have to fit the socket. The socket still has 2011 pins, so any LGA2011 block will still fit.
