Default Skulltrail motherboard at newegg

Newegg.com - Intel BOXD5400XS Dual LGA 771 Skulltrail D5400XS Extended ATX Motherboard - Retail

It too expensive, but you need to buy this if you want a super machine with 8 cores (Two QX9775) !!

This motherboard supports both SLI and Crossfire as well

This offers no plus in 3D synthetic benchmarks or gaming whatsoever, 8 cores had no effect in 3DMark cpu score - and I doubt you'll see much of an improvement in games either, if at all - I remember seeing a review where performance actually decreased when using a skulltrail board

this is really good for servers and workstations though

Actually, quite a few benchmarks have shown that it has WORSE performance than 780i's in SLI.

Nah it was a different bench. I can't for the life of me remember where i read it. But it was comparing quad sli on the 780i and skulltrail, and the 780i had almost 25% better framerates compared to the skulltrail. Partly because its not a real nvidia chipset, and partly due to the FB dimms you have to use on the skulltrail.
