Asus P5E3 Deluxe X38 Mainboard Preview

Over at VR-Zone someone got their lucky hands on the new Asus P5E3-D...

Asus have gone with a rather extravagant heatpipe design but the general layout looks OK:

The capacitors/heatpipes look too close to the socket for many aftermarket cooling options:

There is a wide range of connectivity:

A close-up of the NB heatpipe cooler:

Sata ports and IDE slot have been turned 90 degrees, a good move by Asus:

There seems to be 3 pci-e slots, note the black one at the bottom. Checking the first image it seems long graphics cards may interfere with the RAM slots:

Unfortunately I've hit a small hurdle with my latest project in that one of the PC-G70 doors is vented for cooling graphics cards.This kinda interferes with the laser cutting I was going to have done, and I'm thinking that if i get a replacement door from the PC-70 series, it might fit my G70.

Sooo...can anybody with a PC-70 maybe measure the height/width of their door and take a picture of the back so I can see if it uses the same latches etc.
