The new X58 Northbridge doesn't have a Heatspreader as the X38 or the X58 had. (picture: PCGH)
High-class I/O equipment: Eight USB ports, two E-SATA, Firewire and two Gigabit LAN ports. (picture: PCGH)
With the small button you can load the default BIOS values. (picture: PCGH)
Big – the Northbridge cooler with fine fins. Striking: It is not linked to the cooler of the voltage regulators. (picture: PCGH)
Power as well as Reset switch and a button for the diagnostic display D-LED 2 (additional info later on). (picture: PCGH)
Six angled and four normal SATA ports and a PATA connector. (picture: PCGH)
The board of course supports Bloomfield CPUs, Triple Channel and QPI. (picture: PCGH)
Here the memory channels are listed. (picture: PCGH)

Usually Realtek’s RTL8111C network chip delivers a good transfer speed. (picture: PCGH)
The Green Power Module and the diagnostic display D-LED 2 (right) were included as “nude” version in our sample board. In the final version they will have a plastic cover. The D-LED 2 shows temperatures for example – the probe can be placed at will. (picture: MSI)
The full equipment with X-Fi card and two Crossfire bridges. (picture: PCGH)
