I've never heard of them. Who manufactures them or where can you find them? I'll look into it... but in the meantime, what is your question?

Oh ok, yes I looked it up and actually found some other manufacturings with the same "Black Pearl" in the heading. Looks to be just a name given for a highly watercooled or otherwise cooled motherboard meant for extreme overclocking. As far as I can tell, it hasn't been released yet.

Ah, that may be why I haven't found it since I was only searching US sites. Well, I'm out of my place here then, so I'll let someone else try to help you out. Good luck =)

Nah, forget it. There are superior X38/708i boards with easily adequate cooling even in the £150 range.

MSI P7N Diamond nForce 780i SLi (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard with Free Creative X-FI Card

Asus P5E Intel X38 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

A cheaper, yet perfectly adequate board:

MSI P35 Neo2-FR Intel P35 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

Agreed with Vaanish. $600 is way too much for a motherboard.

Some other good cheaper motherboards:

Abit IX38 Quad GT
Gigabyte X48-DQ6...Isn't out yet though.
DFI LP LT X38-T2R or DK version

hmmm... i know ive heard of black pearl watercooled video cards from evga... but not mobos... and the black pearl cards i heard were discontinued... apparently they were not made of pure copper and were corroding and ruining peoples cooling loops... so id be wary of anything with that name even...
and $600 for a mobo... *shakes head* XD - RK
