Shane has been teasing us for a few hours on Facebook today with some MSI X79 board shots, but now we have the skinny to give you some much needed news on MSI's LGA2011 board. MSI has provided a few board shots of their upcoming Sandy Bridge-E board, MSI X79A-GD65. The board sports the usual LGA2011 gear like quad-channel memory and includes CPU power circuitry above the DIMM slots, as well as a decently large heatsink.

The board also features on-board power buttons, one touch overclocking, on-board POST display and on-board USB 3.0. PCI-e slot wise we have five full-size PCI-E slots as well as a 1x PCI-E which is in the middle. CrossFire and SLI support is of course included, eight SATA ports total with a split of 4/4 for SATA 2/3.


A tonne of board shots for your pleasure below:
