The board doesn;t even have an 8-pin for the cpu... MSI is like a joke in the motherboard business go with an Asus or a gigabyte, there is no comparison.

Isn't it just covered up?  It appears to be, at least.

This isn't the flagship board.  The flagship board is the big bang xpower, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130289.  Also, am I the only one who thinks the heatsinks look incredibly wimpy?  Those look the same as the ones which cannot keep the x58 pro-e (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130226) cool.  In fact, they look even worse, because there is no heatpipe or mosfet cooling.  Who came up with this?  Please tell me this heatsink design isn't finalized.

To me, this looks more like a solid midrange board, something designed to slot in between the xpower and the pro-e and compete with the likes of the evga sli and ftw3, gigabyte ud5 and ud3r, asrock x58 deluxe3, asus p6x58d-e, etc.
