MSI To Release Eclipse Plus Motherboard

MSI Eclipse PlusMSI are reportedly going to be releasing a hotted up version of their X58  Eclipse motherboard called the Eclipse Plus. The obvious difference that we can see between the Eclipse and Eclipse Plus are the inclusion of blue/black anodised aluminium covers on the Northbridge, Southbridge and MOSFET heatsinks. The Southbridge heatsink has also increased in size rather substantially and the SATA ports have been moved to the edge of the motherboard.

According to the source article, the MSI Eclipse Plus has the NF200 chip and it features 4 PCIe X16 slots. SLI and CrossFire are obviously supported. Pricing and a release date are yet to be confirmed, but you can expect the MSI Eclipse Plus to be hard on the hip pocket.

That's a great rig you have there Sleekit.

I am really tempted to buy some of those Xigmatek 120mm fans. They look so nice :D

Great little rig you have there mate, and the cable routing is quite neat too (y). I noticed you use Photobucket for images - we have our own image uploading facility here, so feel free to use it.

It performs very well, runs quieter and cooler then the stock cooler anyway lol. It comes with the cpu cooler I don't know if you can buy them seperate...can you?
