Default Cheap MSI X58 Pro-E LGA 1366 Motherboard

SOLD TO angy

Also I think it does support SLI. MSI made two versions of the Pro-E, one without SLI and one with. I didn't pay attention to the SLI sticker and just assumed that it's the regular CrossFire only version (stupid me).


I have an MSI X58 Pro-E LGA 1366 motherboard for sale. I've only used it for a few days before upgrading to a Gigabyte EX58-UD5 (needed the extra SATA ports). Note: this board only support CrossFire, no SLI.

One of the socket pins was bent very slightly while I was removing the CPU, but it shouldn't affect function at all.

I live downtown Toronto, and am open to local face to face deals only (don't want to deal with shipping hassles). I'm letting the board go cheap for $120, open to reasonable offers.

Anyway, pics:

Think it does support SLI, if memory serves me correctly, MSI released a set of BIOS' for all their X58 boards to support SLI

Maybe he means it doesn't support full PCI-e 2.0 16x in two lanes. I mean, it does say SLI right there on the box, so it must have SLI support to some degree.
