    yeah i do like it, but like they say in The Godfather, Im gonna give you an offer you cant refuse:D

    he wanted to trade it for my SLI LE with no extra charge, then im in, he just want it because of its looks

    and btw, the SLI LE has a weird PCI-E layout

    1. is 16x
    2. is 8x
    3. is 4x.
    4. is 4x i think?EDIT: its 8x, but i cant use it to much since the psu is blocking for dual slot cards

    would be nice to have a board that did full speed on the first 2 slots and not that weird config:D

    but overall its a nice board :D

    thats what i'm thinking, + i can sell it for like 300$, then i can fetch a H50 + a cube case and still have money left :laugh:



    well i already have a m-atx 1366 board laying on my desk, and i'm kinda hooked on getting a new cube case, so i think i'll keep the X58M from MSI, it even oc's better than the sli le:laugh:

    in SOME cases that is true depends on the board and the use both make good boards.

    also how are your temps on the i7 and what pump and rad do you use?

    well i was VERY surprised by this little MSI board, i could get 4.1ghz stable on it.

    mind you that its missing the vreg heatsink(you have to buy one your self)

    My temps are kinda odd. even on stock it idles from 36-40 but load doesnt go over 63? i suspect that it could be the fans im using or i need to change from 3/8 to 1/2 tubing and maybe a faster pump? also i was thinking of going tri rad?

    I'm happy with mine.I snagged mine for $38 shipped brand new :) replacing the fans could make a difference. Also 3/8 vs 1/2 isn't much if any difference that is something people have argued over for along time now.

    the swiftech rad is fine, i use it myself. the other rad doesnt block the flow, i guess, if its a standard design (and no Thermaltake-Rad :D)
