To build up the hype around its upcoming 9 Series motherboard line-up (you know, the one supporting 4-/6-/8-core AMD's Bulldozer-powered FX Series processors) MSI has 'slipped out' a bunch of photos of the AM3+ flagship named 990FXA-GD80.
Seen below, MSI's board comes with a black/blue theme (like most of MSI's latest creations), it utilizes the 990FX / SB950 chipset pair, and features Military Class II components (Hi-C CAP, All Solid CAPs and Super Ferrite Chokes), a 10-phase power design, the OC Genie II one-button overclocking function, support for up to 140W TDP CPUs and four DDR3-2133 memory slots.
Other goodies found on the 990FXA-GD80 are four PCI-Express x16 slots (3-way SLI and CrossFireX are supported), six SATA 6.0 Gbps ports, 7.1 channel (THX Studio Pro-enabled) audio, Gigabit Ethernet, two eSATA connectors, four USB 3.0 ports (two on the back panel, two via an angled on-board header), a debug LED, and Power, Reset and OC buttons.
MSI's 990FX motherboard can be found on pre-order priced as low as 173.15.
