That MSI is one of the worst x58 I ever used. The sucker barely keeps ram on 1066MHz stable. The north bridge must be cooled, the heatsink is too small even for 110C Tmax.
i have a fan directed at the NB
i liked the MSI , it did ok with this cpu
in a couple of weeks i will be putting a X5650 in my ASUS board, i will resubmit to HWBOT
It is currently crunching for Cruncher Society at 100% load while i test it.
NB is 57deg
average across the cores is 60deg
I think the PRO-E was always considered entry level, i dont think this makes it a bad board, perhaps you were unlucky. I would buy another one if i could find one but X58 prices have gone through the roof.
