The slots are right next to each other. That seems like a really bad idea. A terrible one even. I think it's highly doubtful that if they keep the spacing like that there will be any worthwhile options considerable by SPCRers. But, maybe they've come up with something to make sure that's not a problem.

It is a fake!!

1. A64 socket, P4 logo.
2. No space or other slot between PCIE16 slots.
3. The slots are not parallel to each other.
4. The slot to the right is not complete, a piece of it is missing!
5. For the same reason, that slot have a longer distance to the rear end than the PCIE1 slot next to it, which is wrong.

If you don't believe me, download and magnify it! :lol:

That's not the point.
Have you looked at the pic? A box showing a S939 mobo with a P4 logo next to it.

No, it's a regular ATX mobo.
Actually, it's a Sapphire Pure (aka Gruper) mobo that someone have changed the pic of.

As Mats has pointed out. The board is a fake, here is some more info.

http://gathering.tweakers.net/forum/lis ... es/1038408

I found what I was looking for in the above article, why it had an additional heatsink in the top left corner of the board, the MOFSET's, even worse, a 4cm fan, and another one on the NB.

??? I haven't seen any fans, not even in the fake mobo. Here is another pic, just heatsinks. It's about time the power regulators get their own cooling, especially for overclocking. More pics here.
