I am sure by now you have been reading our review of the new Sandy Bridge-E processors, in particular the Core i7-3960X, but we only had a brief mention of the various X79 motherboards we had in-house in that article.  (Which if you haven't read yet, you definitely should!)

Over the course of the last 14 days or so, we have seen and played with:

  • ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
  • ASUS Sabertooth X79
  • ASUS P9X79 Pro
  • MSI X79A-GD65 8D
  • Gigabyte X79-UD3
  • Intel DX79SI

We will have reviews of all of these boards in the coming days, but I wanted to at least make sure you saw each of these motherboards in our video roundup and preview.

Stay tuned to PC Perspective for more on the X79 platform and Sandy Bridge-E!!

Ryan, Thanks for the great intro to X79 and for getting it out so quickly.

I'm liking that gigabyte X79-UD3 for its lower cost plus generously spaced pci-express slots. But I would have liked the full 8 dimm slots even if I had to pay a little extra.

Is there any of the x79 boards that would have what I'm describing including a reasonable cost?
