    Do you have the box? Just to the left of the DDR there should be a white label - what does it say?

    However, the BIOS on both MOBOs are exactly the SAME {7522v38.zip}
    http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloadfile&dno=12019&type=bios = X58 Platinum SLI
    http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloadfile&dno=12019&type=bios = X58 Platinum

    X58 Platinum SLI - http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=170&prod_no=1703
    X58 Platinum - http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=170&prod_no=1696
  2. Compare them and there is no difference http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=compareindex&prod_no=1703;1696 Probably only in the name on the box!
  3. ^ Weirder yet, the closeup images are EXACTLY the same.
