The culprit is MSI’s X58 middle-man, the Eclipse motherboard which was last seen August but is now back in all its practically finished version.

Equipped with a non-CircuPipe copper-made cooling system, the upcoming Enthusiast level board has support for Socket 1366 Core i7 processors, triple-channel DDR3 memory via six RAM slots and three PCI-Express x16 slots that are both SLI and CrossFireX-ready.

The Eclipse also features 10 SATA 3.0 Gbps and two eSATA ports, a DMA channel, dual Gigabit Ethernet, Power, Reset and Clear CMOS buttons, plus a detachable D-LED2 LCD screen and a X-Fi PCIe x1 sound card. The X58 Eclipse will probably hit the stores in early November.
