"The Gigabyte P67A-UD7 is based on Intel’s P67 Express chipset and LGA1155 socket. It is therefore compatible with Intel’s Core i5 / i7 2xxx series parts. Like the P55 Express chipset before it functions such as the memory controller and PCIe controller have been moved into the CPU’s die. Thus simplifying the chipset design. Like Westmere based Core processors, these new Sandy Bridge based Core i5’s and i7’s have integrated video. Though you need a motherboard with the actual monitor port to use it. Additionally there have been some improvements to the chipset, most notably is support for SATA 6G devices. Two of the six ports are SATA 6G capable and the rest are only 3G ports.

32 gigs of memory? Anyone for 24 virtual machines (running at 1GB per virtual machine) in an Ubuntu Server?

Okay, just kidding. But you do need a 6-core processor, though. :)

Of course, I bet that motherboard is very expensive.

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

2 pairs of Insignia NS-B2111s (front/rear), Pioneer SP-C21 Center Speaker, and 12" Velodyne Sub

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

Can still add alot of memory, but you are right that it's not 6 rows. Hmmmm.. would there be a noticeable drop in memory bandwidth?

I liked the blue and white boards, but black and gold looks pretty cool.

I don't normally post hardware reviews from other websites, but something about this board looks sweet with the black and gold. :)
