ASUS P9X79 Pro Preview
First Look - continued
We have plenty of SATA connectors, including one designated for SSD Cache. It looks like the Z68 Intel Rapid Storage Technology has made the leap to the X79.
It's great to see a huge amount of fan-headers available. It's something that often gets overlooked and considering how many case fans a modern gaming rig requires we're pleased the P9X79 Pro has so many.
Whilst there are is a decent amount of rear USB ports available, there are more than enough internal headers for every device you own and then some.
Covering the 8 DIMM slots, a number which we're still getting used to, are some hardware highlights so we'll leave them here for you to ponder until we can give you the full review in a couple of weeks.
