I will be working hard over summer so I can buy me some of that LGA 2011 goodness when it arrives! I hope they have the same look as the SB boards!

You might find that you will be needing a bigger case also :o

I hope not  :'(
My antec 1200 is pretty large, any weighs almost 5 stone! Any larger and it will collapse in on itself and form a black hole  :o

If I run out of room I may consider one of those loops in a tiny case builds though!

Yes makes life a lot easier especailly if you change components etc fairly often. I am just trying to get one sorted out now for reviews and testing.

What do you guys think will be the best ram setup for these boards?

Any good quality memory like Mushkin, Corsair, Crucial, etc. Specifically any memory that is compatible with the X58 boards should be ok.

For performance, do you think its better to go with DDR3 2200 @ a max of 4 gigs in dual channel or DDR3 1600 in triple channel with a  6 or 12 gig kit? I want to build a beastly gaming PC with this mobo.

The thing is right at the moment if you want to use the latest platform then you only have the Dual Channel DDR3 option. This is with Sandy Bridge on the 1155 socket but shortly there is another socket coming out 2011 which it is supposed will support Triple Channel or even more.

At the moment there is not much to choose between the Triple Channel X58 boards and the Dual Channel P67 boards as far as performance goes. However I don't think it will remain this way for long.

To be honest 6GB is more than enough for a gaming PC. The only things that warrant more really are the rendering programs and video transcription programs, etc.

Yes it will be interesting to see how this differs in performance from the prevoius boards.
