MSI 990FXA-GD65 Motherboard Pictures Leaked

It looks like someone got bored and creative and leaked out 'slices' of their upcoming 990FXA-GD65 motherboard for AMD processors:

8+2 Phase power design looks promising, but lets hope they revised it from their 890FX-GD65 & 870A Fuzion boards; as those couldn't hold up a Thuban when going into your more extreme cooling areas.

Other than that, I'm glad to see them using the PCIe 6pin connector to supply the PCIe Slots power (in addition to the ATX 24pin cable.) This design really helps when it comes to power distribution in a system (since the ATX 24pin only carries 3 12v wires, but is supposed to deliver 75w to each x16 slot, and 12w to each x1 slot.)

On the other hand, I wish someone could figure out how to locate it at either the bottom, or the side of the board. It would make cable routing MUCH nicer. Getting an extension and using a case with a hole for the ATX 8pin CPU Power to route the cable usually works though.
