What's with all the gun-theming of late though? Gigabyte started it, and now MSI is picking it up too? Why?

Military grade parts....and when engineers think military...they dont think "internet" or "silly putty" or "radar" or "microwave ovens" not even "tampons" (thank god on this one) or the other billion and one things that have come about from the military...they think GUNS.

Everything I have been reading about MSI lately makes me want to give them another chance. IF this lands soon I may just pick it up instead of a GB ud7. Fugly heatsinks or no.

I have the first one and i love it. I look forward to see some mods done to the xpower II, like replacing those retarded looking heatsinks for motherboard waterblocks. The only thing i really hate is the price (bout 420 euros), and the release date

source: MSI releases second X79 motherboard with 8 DIMMs by VR-Zone.com

EDIT: It will release on jan. 6 of next year
