MSI have had their turn, twice, and now its BIOSTAR's turn. BIOSTAR have just announced the TPOWER X79 motherboard that is squarely aimed at the most demanding of overclockers and enthusiasts. The latest Sandy Bridge-E, Socket 2011-based CPUs will feature in the board when the X79 chipset is officially launched on 11/14.
BIOSTAR's TPOWER X79 sports the ability of extreme overclocking capabilities, rich functionalities as well as the highest standard of quality. It includes an integrated heat-pipe design, three-way CrossFire X or SLI support, quad-channel memory support, eight USB 3.0 ports and nine-phase 'luxurious' power supply design.
The board features an old-school PCB coloring, but with a pimp lip stick red scheme on top which I think looks fantastic. A blend of old and new.
