    MSI is teasing their new X99S SLI PLUS motherboard on Facebook and social media lately. I think I like the looks of the new black out theme, and I hope it performs as good as it looks :D

    Cool looking board, though to be honest the board im really interested in is the MSI Big Bang Edition (If they release another one).

    Haha, that so cool. Don’t know when this board’s format will release.

    And the most important is, how much of this board?

    Yes, thank you. This is also exactly what I think of the trend toward black PC components.

    Mine is:
    5930K
    MSI Big Band Edition X99 or Asus Rampage X99
    16gb DDR4 2133
    3x R9 290X (Same ones lol).

    I hope MSI releases another board as well with this. The previous big bang was just such an awesome board.

    10 SATA ports? That's it? :p I'm using all 8 on my P9X79 Deluxe as it stands right now.

    You can also use the SATA in the SATA-Express. So there's ten there.

    You mean eleven? There are 10 SATA ports plus the SATA Express next to the two upward facing SATA ports. It's not bad, but I'm also not planning on upgrading any time soon. If I buy more drives then a hardware RAID card will be on my list of things to get. Fortunately skt2011 has more than enough PCI-E lanes to share if that becomes the case.

    Also I would like to wait until the kinks are worked out of DDR4 first, once issues have been identified. I didn't invest in DDR3 when it first came out and I won't for DDR4 either for the same reason. Also, why upgrade? My 3820 can handle just about anything I throw at it and there is an entire lineup of SB-E, IVB-E and Xeons I can drop into this board, so all in all, I don't feel like I would lose much by not upgrading the platform. The P9X79 Deluxe has been pretty solid for me so far.

    If you already had a skt2011 machine, I don't see many reasons to upgrade other than having the upgrade itch.

    I just reread your post and my post. I thought you said there was only 8 on this and you were using 10 now.

    You can't use those SATA ports as well as SATA-Express. It's either 2 SATA ports or one SATA-Express port.

    I think the streaming engine should be a card like Avermedia A Game Broadcaster HD.

    there is not too much detailed spec about it. I wonder the street pricing of this board after adding such a capture card. o_O

    MSI sure has some slick looking boards and this one just adds to that lineup!

    But I still request an announcement from MSI about an MSI X99 Big Bang Edition!

    There is also this board coming out here

    MSI X99S XPower AC, looks like this maybe the replacement for the Big Bang.

    All these boards are now making me double think about my gigabyte g1 bk wfi. I think I am returning it and jumping the 1150 ship for a 2011. Not to mention I need a black or bk/whte mobo to go whit my new build

    If you're mostly a gamer without 3 GPUs or more, I can't see why upgrading would be of any benefit to you.
