MSI Preparing X58Pro-E Motherboard

Adding to its now 6-strong lineup of motherboards for the Intel Core i7 processors, that includes the recently pictured X58M micro-ATX board, the company is preparing yet another full-sized motherboard, the X58Pro-E. This board is designed to be a notch above the X58Pro thanks to support for the GreenPower design. This is perhaps to compete with similar offerings from other manufacturers, under the $220 price-point.

MSI has taken care of the essentials with this one. A basic 4+1 phase VRM powers the CPU, which uses the company's proprietary Driver-MOSFET (DrMOS) technology. Six DDR3 memory, three PCI-Express x16 slots supporting ATI CrossFireX technology, seven SATA II ports (six routed to the ICH10R, with one on the board routed to an external controller, the same controller providing an eSATA port), several USB ports, IEEE-1394 and gigabit Ethernet, make for all of this board's feature set. We predict this board to be launched alongside the X58M. Many thanks to one of our readers for providing the pictures.

Well if your avatar represents you, the I'm guessing because you spend so much time in the mud observing enemies, that you have build up kind of a relation to the brown mud. Don't worry, its only natural:D

No really, i don't like this color at all. Other than that, this board doesn't look too bad. At least they didn't force in a fourth pci-e slot.

Thank God, at least the slots and components have the decent black-blue colour-scheme. So much better than the la la la orange-green theme MSI was using.
