    All I have to say, is that this is one impressive looking board. But I have one question. Does anyone ever recall a motherboard that launched with a $400 SRP?

    Pricey!

    It appears to be a killer motherboard with the copper walled fort around the CPU but I can't imagine it being worth 400 bones. That thing better sing to me while doing the dishes for 400 dollars. I am looking forward to a review without a doubt. I am also wondering if the RoG tag it carries has something to do with the astronomical price.

    Naw. The Crosshair is an RoG board and it's only $230~.

    No soup for you!
    I paid $360 (IIRC) for this 9CJS in '03...it was about the most expensive single CPU consumer board I'd ever seen until this. Even the A8N32 SLI wasn't that expensive in the height of the buying frenzy for it in Dec. '05.

    $360 is nuts. I had no idea any board came close to $400, but that's close enough. I paid something like $320CAN for the P5WD2-E Premium, and to me that was plenty.

    I reluctantly paid about 140 for this Ultra-D if memory serves me correctly. However, if the results warrant such a price, the old addage, you get what you pay for, holds true.

    Heh, and I thought $200+ was a lot of money for a motherboard when I bought my current rig.

    $200 is a lot of cash for a motherboard, no matter how you look at it. It doesn't mean it's not worth it though :cool:

    I second that. To an extent, you do get what you pay for.

    Asus Striker extreme, from what I read is hardly overclockable for gamerz.
