Water-cooled X38 motherboard

 

According to TechConnect Magazine, MSI is preparing a water-cooled X38 motherboard. It looks like the almighty ASUS might be getting some competition in that segment.

MSI's water cooled version will be called HydroGenX38, and the water cooling system is made by Watercool.de. The board itself will feature four PCIe 2.0 (2x 16, 2x 4), two Ethernet ports, seven SATA, two eSATA, eight USB ports and integrated Creative X-Fi Xtreme Soundcard. Motherboard will feature a 4-phase two channel PWM.

The water cooling system looks rather interesting since it has an unusual design. The holes on different sides of the cooling system make us think that the heatpipe is actually not a classic heatpipe but rather a water conduit. There could be an issue with the small northbridge heatsink when the water cooling isn't used, but we will wait and see the official announcement from the MSI.

According to our sources MSI will be releasing two versions of this motherboard, a DDR3 board that will come first and the "combo" design that will feature the support for both DDR3 and DDR2 memory. According to the sources the DDR3 only version should retail for 379 Euros.
