This week ASRock are launching a high/low combination of motherboards for Haswell. The first one is going to be one of the wildest designs on the Z87 platform, using an LSI 3008 chip combined with a 3X24R expander to provide sixteen SAS-3/SATA 6 Gbps alongside the six SATA 6 Gbps ports already provided by the chipset, giving 22 total. We actually saw this motherboard at Computex earlier in the year, all hooked up:

See there is no way I should touch that motherboard. GRANtEd lots of bells whistles and scalability however Me and my customers demand reliability machines that are running non stop energy efficient and are built for my climate. The additional coolers on both the N & S Bridges WILL fail are not so capable in removing hear as opposed to other techniques and I don't need to keep going. Granted it may look cool but its ust VW beetle fro the 60s with a porsche body kit around it.

UNINSPIRED

LOL

all you really need to do to battle the heat is pull the heatsink and put a lil liquid silver possibly a faster fan if your really worried but by the specs it should run cool the only things that will bake the system is the cpu and the 22 hard drives running which would be nice to add alongside my 26 tb raid server
