    looks like a good choice for overclocking. Will they have a sister product for the 2.4 & 2.6 pluses?

    u mean will it support AMD Athlon XP 2400 and 2600?/ the answer is yes

    also they will have 8K9A2+ which will have HPT372 instead of the 374 controller and possibly a 8K9A5+ with Serial ATA

    Actually I have seen a picture of the 8K9A2+ that had both SerialATA and HPT372, so the 8K9A5+ is out of the question. This was confirmed by EPoX. So the 8K9A2+ will the the overclocker's choice because 4-channel RAID is pretty much useless. It might also have Firewire, but I am nut sure because I don't know where I've seen that pic so I can post it here.

    How about passive cooling in the northbridge that would be nice. Also i dont think i'd have use for 10 HDD's so is there going to be a non raid variant, im guessing yes? and im also guessing it will be called the 8K9A

    Unfortunately I could find the picture.

    As far as the 8K9A w/o RAID, I am sure there will be a version of it.

    The only bad things i can say about that board is no passive cooling on northbridge and bad location of ATX connector and floppy connector, other than that it looks like a beauty

    The passive coolin' coolin' of the northbridge with the 8K3A+ has never stopped me from gettin' some pretty high FSB's though I've always made sure that the cases that they go into have had very good air circulation. ;)
