A pair of CrossFireX boards

Asus is one of the first motherboard manufacturers to announce boards based on the new AMD 790FX chipset and the company has launched two boards, both supporting CrossFireX for up to four graphics cards.

The two boards are the M3A32-MVP Deluxe/WiFi-AP and the M3A32-MVP Deluxe, although this time it's more than just the addition of a USB Wi-Fi card that differentiates between the  two boards; the M3A32-MVP Deluxe/WiFi-AP features Asus's new Cool Mempipe Technology which adds two RAM sinks that are connected to the motherboard's heatpipe cooling.

Asus claims that this will lower the memory temperature of DDR2 modules by up to 10°C. Both boards have four x16 PCIe 2.0 slots, although they can be run in a combination of dual x16, x16 and two x8 or four x8, depending on how many cards you install.

Both boards also have two PCI slots, six SATA, one eSATA, 7.1-channel HD audio with optical and coaxial S/PDIF, six rear USB 2.0 ports, FireWire and four memory slots for DDR2 memory. And, if you have an AM2+ CPU, the boards will accept 1,066MHz modules. Both boards also features 8+2 phase power regulation, which should make these boards interesting for overclockers.
