MSI announces X58 Pro Motherboard

Press ReleaseMicro-Star International Co. Ltd., today announced the most affordable Core i7 solution on the market. Based on the Intel X58 chipset with a ICH10R southbridge, this board supports the full i7 range of processors, with ultra-high QPI bandwidth and six DDR3 DIMM slots.

The MSI X58 Pro comes complete with three dual-slot PCI Express x16 slots that offer support for both ATI's triple CrossFireX and Nvidia's Tri-SLI.

It comes complete with MSI's DrMOS power-saving technology, which has been proven to reduce the power draw under low usage conditions, whilst being able to provide full power the instant the system requires it.

To help provide efficient cooling, the heatpipe of MSI X58 Pro comes with a split thermal system. This helps to prevent the transfer of heat from the chipset to the PWM. Due to its unique power efficiency, the MSI DrMOS system keeps the PWM cool by itself, helping the overclocker to achieve higher results.

The X58 Pro also comes with MSI's unique M-Flash, which allows you to boot a second BIOS from a USB stick should it be necessary.

multi at 7?

Yes, running at 7x multi. Hence the uber high FSB required.

When I get me some 1ghz+ ram I can probably push to aroung 525fsb, which would put me in the top 25 intel overclocks on OCN.

You should seriously overvolt that CPU a bit just to reach the World Record:

I loved my E6600. Nice chip mate :)

i got E6320 basically E6300 with extra cache. Atm have it running rock stable 3.1Ghz, but definitelly gotta say your lucky there, very nice overclock indeed ;) Might give another fiddle in bios once more later.

You aint far of the world record actually... get that RAM and smash that record!!

02-02-2009, 15:33:35

LOL, that record table is pretty lame, people have had 4.13ghz out of their e6300.


Gonna push further when I get new ram and I make my ICE pot.

02-02-2009, 16:56:15

Is that all they got? I could out do that :o

LOL If he had decent water set up or Dry Ice I reckon that thing will fly past 4GHz easily.

/shakes head

Wake up guys. That record is for the allendale 6300. The conroe WR is just over 4.6ghz wich for a x7 locked chip is very impressive.
