Who needs 128gb of memory with an x79 set-up????? Anyone with those needs will most likely go the xeon/opteron route! I have to say that is pretty awesome though, definitely leaves room for future expansion haha. Go msi!
Now you're just mashing it!
ERM, i do? :D lol... But ya, heck of a room to upgrade :D
So, where do you get 16GB RAM sticks? 8GB sticks are just starting to trickle out from suppliers. This 128GB max won't be feasible, even if you had the money, for quite some time.
128GB what! That is way overkill plus the cost. This is just so they can say it can support up to 128GB when in fack it may not me available.
Bet it won't be long until the ram vendors have 128 Gig kits out. And if you can plop a grand down for a cpu, what's another grand for the ram. lol
"It's nice that it supports all the RAM, ok so you got our attention, but I like how this board looks and doesn't seem to compromise munch from the GD65. Looking forward to read a review about it."
Hum Set up a Ram drive on this bad boy. Thought I would cost quite a bit to make, it would defiantly be fast.

Nice, but one has to ask. Does the motherboard omegadraco won also do 128GBs of RAM? If so then omegadraco has one hell of a motherboard there.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Alas, his supports a mere 64GB of RAM, But I'm sure that he'll get over it,.....
These new boards are way cool and I'm gonna try my best to get one of them.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Haha yeah 64GB of ram which I won't need or be able to afford even. A 128GB of memory is a bit insane... who knows maybe they will release a BIOS update that will allow it to support more but I am not counting on it or in need of it. Hmm... just had a thought maybe I can have my father buy my memory for me in exchange for letting him use it as a rendering box for his 3D work when needed

He'll ~need~ it all of the time,........
3d work does take up a bit of ram, I use 3ds max on occasion to model stuff for people/fun
Well at least it will run farm ville without lagging........

Once you render something with a kick-azz PC that's loaded with RAM, you never-ever want to go back to the "regular" PC and work,........
Ram will do little on the render times, but it will allow you to have more complex scenes open and workable.
HOLY DRAM BATMAN!!!!!
I could use some more memory
NOW THIS IS A REAL MOTHERBOARD, This is just the upgrade iv been looking for.
A multitasker's dream...I know of a few who could use the kit...But still, for the rest of us it's overkill.
No Way! That is crazy to see that support 128 GB of RAM. I dont know about this. Unless if someone want that kind of huge amount of RAM then it will be perfect for muilt-tasking and very serious games.
The solution is a 32 gb ram hard drive and a mid range motherboard. i have no idea how some one could use a full 128gb of ram, its practically just a ram hard drive, its ridiculous.
Mind boggling! FYI, Win 7 Ultimate, Enterprise, and Pro have memory limits 192GB.... Win 7 home editions have limits around 8-16GB. I guess you would have to upgrade Win7 to take advantage of this mobo.
Never stop learning... until you're dead.
Jack of all trades, master of none.
With that much ram, you can boot your window and all software from ram. That is what i want to do in a not to distant future.
To do so: one would need to find out how to create a ramdrive at start up than load an image into it and last boot from it !!! (wow, mega seed)
