New Egg seems to have the quiet version of the AN8-SLI model in stock:

The regular AN8 is still the older, fan-fitted model:

I'm not building my new system untill mid-july, so I'm hoping it will have been released and reviewed by that time. If it turns out not to be stable I'm going to go with one of the Via APG Models. That said, it looks like a really nice board so I'm hoping it will be stable (or "mature" as the buzz word seems to be).

That is a long heatpipe! Quite possibly the most visually dominating part of the whole motherboard.

I have an XP-120 to test with and believe me I'm definitely trying it out.

Unfortunately, I ended up using my CNPS7700-Cu on a build for a friend, so I don't have one of those to test with as well.
