Default MSI's X38 Diamond motherboard

Overall, the board has better features than usual which is always good, however it just feels a touch sporadic and there isn't that elegance in the design. I know, if it works then what the hell, right? But for example, dedicating a whole PCI-Express x1 lane for just one IDE port feels... wrong. MSI is limited by the options of chipsets available, true, but it seems like there's just been a check list and stuff has been progressively thrown on then the dots have been joined.

On a slightly different note, we did ask about MSI's RD790 motherboard, but there's currently no word on it just yet. This is both surprising and slightly worrying - we can only assume that it's because Phenom parts are still a little way away, and so we'll know more when you can buy the CPUs for it.
