Default First pictures of Intel's Bloomfield motherboard

If you look at the pictures below that we spruced up a bit, since the originals from Chiphell are a bit dark, you'll notice that apart from the fact that this board has the usual array of components, it looks nothing like your average Intel board today. The four memory slots are located at the top of the board and we presume the three blue slots are for triple-channel memory. However, it's odd that there's a single black slot as well, and we're not sure what the intention of it is. We actually expected to see six memory slots, but this might well come on later boards.

The CPU socket is located below the memory slots, but oddly enough, behind the chipset. The socket is LGA1366 in this case and it has a lot more pins than what we're used to seeing on consumer level CPU sockets. The chipset location for both the replacement for the MCH and the ICH are located toward the front of the board, vertically above each other. This is something we haven't seen on any other motherboard to date and it looks rather strange. mid=37

We're curious about what "Joe's order the smackover special" means below the bottom PCIe x1 slot,
One has to wonder...

Anyone else notice the "Jolly Roger" too?

Its a prototype motherboard, designed for testing purposes only. It only has to work and be stable. Functionality, features, and aesthetics come in later designs.
