Default MSI P45D3 "cinco pipe" flashy cooling

These Pictures from Coolaler were posted over at TechConnect Magazine- Gimmicky but beautiful looking cooling on this board.

Hidden from cameras and prying eyes at CeBIT MSI's cooling solution for its upcoming Intel P45-powered motherboard, the P45D3 Platinum, is now out in the open. Set to cool the new mainstream LGA775 chipset the Cinco Pipe is Circu Pipe's brother or sister-in-law and features lots of copper, five heatpipes and a quite the peacock tail-like northbridge heatsink.

Copper aside, the motherboard has four DDR3 slots, two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots for CrossFire support, six SATA 3.0 Gbps ports, integrated HD audio and more. The P45D3 Platinum will be released in Q2.

Can't be an MSI board... looks like the slots follow industry standard.... :) For years MSI has been doing dual channel completely different from anybody else.

I should have another look at current MSI boards. I always loved the community, and my first "enthusiast" board was a MSI platinum, but their shoddy bios updates (many a fried board from crappy bios flash) sent me in other directions.
