Nice to see the Black PCB is kept.Hopefully by the time it's out it'll better supported like the X58's for the Hackintosh scene.I know it's too early to say but maybe those with the knowledge can weigh in on potential issues that we can look forward too or should this chipset be easy to set up like the X58 ?..............

It is very disappointed to see only 4 DIMMs on the high end chipset.....

I agree. With quad channel ram I was hoping for 8 slots, instead they gave each slot its own channel.

For most people not a big deal, but I need 20-24gb of RAM to run simulations. Might build a X58 machine on the cheap instead of SB for now.

Even if just 6 slots, that would be great.
