Wow that looks nice, really hope it'll perform, too
Also, REALLY hope they finally make a bios flashing utility that doesn't brick the boards >.<
Looks really nice, glad they finally figured out that there SHOULD be a pci-e x4/x1 above the pci-e x16-slots, for a dedicated soundcard.
Does look very nice init...
Pr0n for my eyes...
Another one for our folding team!
Does it come with its own power station?
Something to finally knock the P6TD off it's perch? I'm looking forward to it...
Impressive - a motherboard with more PCI-e-connectors than fan headers.
Pretty irrelevant launch, it's just the engineers fapping to see which brand gets the most world records..
That does look nice, and I really love the colour scheme.
But two 8 pin EPS power connectors? Who's PSU has that?
My Seasonic X-750 ^_^
My sst-st1200 does too
So, does it use a PCI Express Bridge? NF200?
They are also taking ideas from Asus as well, as the RAM sockets don't have clamps on the PEG slots side (Q-dimm design, right?).
+1 for that, and i'll also welcome the day we have nothing but x16 slots like the good old PCI days, choice of where to place the cards, graphics or other....
Sha-winng. My word, that's a lot of phases.
it's quite secksay but there are just so many Xs in the name ... Do they still think people go crazy over products with Xs in the name because it's so "EXTREMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" (thinking about the retards in the first Harold and Kumar )
Wonder about that blue connector right next to the SATA connectors?!
Btw, I have this kind of noobish doubt. Can I plug a pci-e x1 card in a pci-e x16? Like an agp x4 or x2 card in an agp x8 slot
WOW an extreme overclockign board with no mosfet coolers and no heatpipes
good work MSI
seriously though - aesthetically this board looks fantastic, but the overall package is not really there yet, msi have this nasty font they insist on using on all their boards, why?
it just makes the board look daft. a better solution would be to have a nice heatpipe array covering the mosfets/X58/ICH10
that way the board would look more intimidating and less like a budget OEM classified ripoff
Looks like a contact section if you want to monitor voltages with a multi meter.
Also, my Termaltake Toughpower has 2 8pins Cupboard.
Thats an impressive board.
