    Looks like this is the best mobo so far for the 890GX, a possibility far better than 6 slots of the FX and what is more this is mATX!

    the 89x wont launch today, it is just that they will unveil today. The problem here is that some have unveiled their mobos before and some not like MSI. The launch will be at cebit :(

    Hmm I like this a bit better than gigabyte's offering. Though I think Asus should lease the rights to their Q-shield for MSI, Gigabyte, ECS, etc.

    I can't tell from the pic, but I am hoping they switched to black boards instead of brown. I am glad to see the mid range from MSI has shed my board's pick, pastel purple, and other girly colors.

    first ram slots are too close to the CPU socket, so it's too hard to set big air cooler if you use 4 ram with heat sink kit, just like in some P55's
