The pic on MSI's site is really crappy, but I can make out a single voltage stabilizer circuit.

It's very likely that this board powers the CPU on the +5V rail.

EDIT: looking even closer, am I seeing a 4-pin molex connector just north of the northbridge chipset? Is it for the power supply?
bingo. is 12v powered. any board with a 12v connector powered the cpu with the 12v rail.

NOT TRUE AT ALL.

my antec a7nx8 does not have the additional 4pin connector, and powers from the 12v line.
