MSI x58 Pro-E is a [strike]good[/strike] great board for the price. Overclocking is very easy with the Pro E. Regarding the IOH temps, you can place a spot cool fan over it, and temps will be around 50-55 degrees which is completely acceptable & safe.

I am not hundred% sure but the father of my pal is a Gigabyte Supplier and he said so and expected hitting prices are around :eek:hyeah: 14K :S

and don't buy the MSI board my college friend bought it and tried to over clock it threw up a lot of tantrums like temp hike instability etc etc :mad:

Will suggest the MSI Pro-E, amazing board for its Price, yes the IOH runs hot but place a small fan on top of it, and the temp drops to 50s as suggested by alcy....Have used 3 MSI-Pro-E at different times, all of them could take my chip to 4.8Ghz benchable on air, 4.4Ghz 24/7 stable....

@alpha17

thanks for the info.

@thebanik

i wont be overclocking beyond 3.6 -3.8 Ghz as the performance per watt would be declining beyond it (tomshardware review)

to all other wanna be owners of this board from Mumbai pm me so that can we go for bulk purchase and get some sizable discount.will update once this board is out.
