Beautiful. Simply beautiful. Someone tell xXDeltaXx that his new board has arrived, LOL.

You may be right :)

I'm not going to be able to get anything along those lines til late in the year - should give me time to check out both Ivy and Ivy-E as well... but yeah, I like that board :) (case is looking rediculously expensive - hence the wait)

None that I can find - also, keep an eye out for specs... accurate ones; One (or more?) site suggests that the two cut down PCIe x16 slots are PCI... silly people

Well, 2 of them don't have the clip thing at the end of the slot as the clip lever would be hovering over those chips. I thought the lever/locks are required for PCI-E slots?

I've been looking at the picture really really close since I saw conflicting reviews lol. I didn't want 5X PCIe x16 and 2x PCI - as the first review stated, so I lost interest in this board. Then someone was talking about it and I looked again. The layout (as no doubt we all know) for a PCIe x16 and PCI is different - few ways, easiest to spot is the divider. So, it's definitely 7x PCIe x16 mechanical (2 or 3 are x8 electrical). The other review sites state the clips are missing to allow a suitable heatsink in for cooling the chips below :) - Yeah, slightly off what you were saying lol

Not completely required - extenders don't have them... maybe those 2 don't fully comply to the standard?

They are all PCI-e. The clips are missing so that they can get a heatsink on the chips directly behind the 2nd and 6th slots. Whoever came up with the idea theyre PCI was a complete muppet.

Won't make much difference if you're teaming double-slotted cards. Slots 1, 3, 5 and 7 are the full x16 electrical for 4-Way. Two and 6 would be covered.

Extenders for those using all 7 slots wouldn't have to be locked in as there's not likely a need for strain relief either...
