    By the looks of it, it will be a LGA1366 motherboard..shows that they still see the benefit of the platform.

    To be honest, it doesn't look as good as the Rampage III extreme, maybe its a downgrade?

    +1. I don't think it looks as good as the standard R3E (might be slightly biased)

    Yeah, that was exactly the first thing I thought of. Both now have discrete audio and NICs. What I also find funny is that the R3E Black Edition isn't much more black than the original.

    They both have the killer NIC and discrete audio, and both look to have the same sorta features in general as well as both being late X58 releases aimed at enthusiasts who are waiting on socket 2011 before moving off 1366.

    Much, much better looking. More black FTW. Red and black is too classified.

    Yeh Sabertooth rocks! I loved the colouring on that. :p

    Funny you should mention that. I'm actually (as I type this) building the Sabertooth and my old 950 up for a mate.
