We just received some pictures of the ECS X79R-A motherboard form the ECS booth over at Computex 2011 that are worth a forum post. These new boards look pretty cool. Take a look at the dual lever CPU socket that is being used for LGA2011. That CPU isn't going any place!

This board is going to make case selection easy, nothing with a shallow depth that is for sure. With the CPU that far forward on the board, and fat heatsink like the Noctua NH-D14, you will be very close to the back of the optical drives on a shallow depth case.

Integrated backing plate to the socket, that's gonna be different. I want to see the back side of that socket.

Gonna be interesting. :-k

i'd replace the grey colors with black

socket layout is different but logical considering the perpetual question of 'will it hit my RAM'

Or use an inverted motherboard for the new 2011 CPUs
