Tiny little fans might be a deal breaker for the Sabertooth. I hate hearing those little things spin like crazy.

if the power stuff is generating such heat, get together is Intel to make some sort or standard rectangular socket where the CPU heatsink covers the power stuff.

Damn. Chipset annoying fans are back. And you KNOW they will not last and sound like crap. Couldn't they have just padded the price and added a worthwhile heatsink? The fan IS a dealbreaker on what would be a great next MB (the Rampage)
