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

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.

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.

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.

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