    If only they had Asus's fan control options, I'd go for it. Although it's most likely a sleak, less extra mainboard, I like the X99S (I think that's the name) with it's all black design...

    Do any of the new X99 boards support a tri-SLI config with the cards sitting in slots 1, 4 and 7 ? I might go for tri-SLI sooner or later, but don't want the cards sandwiched. The 1, 4, 7 configuration would leave 1 open slot between the cards, increasing airlow, lowering temps, lowering noise :)

    Well the 1st card gets the hottest so it would be good to have at least a space between that and the 2nd, I too am curious how they worked out the pci-e lanes configurations on these boards.

    Anyway, I love both gaming and xpower X99 color scheme, they are both 90% black with a pinch of red/yellow and would go perfectly with either MSI gaming or lightning cards. :nerd:
