Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Early Look: MSI X58 Eclipse - Early Look: MSI X58 Eclipse
Mon, September 01 2008 | 12:02PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Hmm, "Eclipse" - we like it, but what do you think? It's MSI's new foray into the high end with intimately cool dark designs, plenty of power regulation and oodles of features by the looks of things There are six DDR3 memory slots that that support 24GB of memory. These are connected to the upcoming LGA1366 Nehalem socket that is powered by a 6-phase DrMOS power design. In a sheer numbers game though, it does seem low compared to the 16 from Asus and "virtual" 12 from Gigabyte, however MSI's P45 had five phase DrMOS and it worked perfectly well for us, in fact it was one of the most efficient boards we tested, so we can only expect the Eclipse to be closely the same. In addition to the DrMOS MOSFET + driver IC, there are the usual sealed ferrite cored chokes and the board gets all solid aluminium capped capacitors, although the CPU gets some low profile Hi-C capacitors instead.
