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.
