The folks over at HKEPC managed to get hold of an engineering sample MSI P45 Diamond motherboard.
From what we have seen in the past few months, it does indeed look as if MSI is getting very serious about its high-end motherboards with more and more exotic and interesting features. GIGABYTE and ASUS are only getting stronger and stronger but MSI seems to be very far from giving up.
While the early shots we can see so far are of an ES product, it does look to have quite a bit of potential. Not only does it see a rather full on heat pipe cooling setup for the chipsets and power but you can also go a step further and add water cooling to the setup.
You can check out the rest of the pictures over at HKEPC and you can expect our full preview online sometime next week as we also have one in our hot little hands.
