The X58 based XPower

According to the info and pictures over at VRZone, MSI's Big Bang series is destined to get another addition, the MSI Big Bang XPower motherboard. The new  XPower will be based on Intel's X58 chipset and should be officialy revealed sometimes in March, probably during CeBIT.

In addition to the P55 based Trinergy and Fuzion, MSI's Big Bang series will get a new member based on the Intel X58 chipset with support for LGA 1366 processors, 16-phase DrMOS PWM, Hi-c Caps, SuperPipe cooling system, and a total of six PCI-Express x16 slots for some wicked CrossfireX and quad-SLI action.

The rest of the features include two SATA 6.0Gbps and six SATA 3.0Gbps port, two USB 3.0 and two eSATA ports, dual Gigabit Ethernet, Firewire, Quantum Wave Audio card, Active Phase Switching, OC Genie for overclocking, V-Check points, OC Dashboard (external OC device), high quality tantalum capacitors and much more.

One thing that caught our eye is that you'll need quite a power supply to run this motherboard. It needs two 8-pin power connetors and an extra 6-pin PCI-Express power connector, all just to keep the motherboard stable for extreme overclocking. After looking at these specifications there is simply no question that this board is specially designed for enthusiasts and hardcore overclockers.

The new Big Bang XPower should come in time for CeBIT, and while the price hasn't been announced we are pretty positive that this one will be everything but cheap, but premium, enthusiast, and hardcore overclocking products always were expensive.
