More MSI mATX X58 pictures

Written by test

Should hit retail as X58M

It seems like we were pretty much spot on in terms of the specs of the new mATX X58 motherboard from MSI that we wrote about yesterday, but some new pictures gives a better idea of what you get and it shows off the board in all its retail ready glory.

As you can see, the board now sports a slightly improved chipset cooling solution, although it didn't get a heatpipe in the end, most likely for cost reasons. The colours of the slots have also changed, but at least the x4 PCI Express slot is still open ended.

The headers have also been colour coded and we can now see that there are four headers for an additional eight USB 2.0 ports, a header for a second FireWire port, one for what looks like a serial port and finally one for a TPM module. It doesn't seem like MSI have given the board any kind of digital audio output, although one of the 3.5mm jacks might double up as an optical S/PDIF out.

So far we haven't heard anything about an official launch date or pricing, but the official name seems to be X58M.
