Intel P45 has arrived. You can read about MSI utilities in our full reviews of motherboards from this company. Memory Performance 8 – Subsystem Testing: The cooling system is a real eye stopper. This product line from MSI is notable for relatively moderate prices. The motherboard supports CrossFireX, one PCI slot will certainly remain free even if you install two graphics cards with bulky cooling systems.

Intel P45 has arrived. The cooling system is a real eye stopper. Written by Richard Swinburne. At least plqtinum motherboard detected our test processors correctly, so we had no problems with not using these jumpers unlike MSI PD.
During our trip to China and Taiwan earlier this month, we paid a visit to MSI’s headquarters in Taipei to see what the company is up to. Here’s what happened on a short and rain affected trip to Taiwan. The board uses only polymeric capacitors made in Japan and screened chokes.
Despite the fact there are five pipes popping out the north bridge heatsink there’s actually quite a lot of space around the CPU socket as the other heatsink fins are quite low slung too.
Board Layout The general layout is really very good — we found no real issues at all.

But we have no doubts that mdi motherboard would perform on a par with its competitors in identical modes. Written by Richard Swinburne. It looks imposing, it does not take up much room, it does not interfere with most CPU coolers, and most importantly, it’s not very expensive: Memory Performance 8 – Subsystem Testing: The DS3R legend is back, and we take the latest budget nehwork efficient” P45 from Gigabyte to the cleaners, to see if its whites are whiter than white.
We netwwork also mention a couple of jumpers not even buttons! We have nothing to say about the bundle of this motherboard, just your average bundle you can have a look at all components in the photo gallery. MSI X38 Diamond preview.
Today, we’ve got pictures and thoughts on two of the company’s newest motherboards – the P45 Platinum and K9N2 Ppatinum. Richard sits down and pens the details – more curvy pipes and more lanes seem to be the flavour of the month.

The question is though: Naturally curiosity got the better of us so we had to check it out! As a result, we had to work out minimal settings with which this system agreed to startup. Do these ingredients create a better board than the Platinum? In nstwork case we even had to put a thick piece of padding under the heatsink to avoid its skewing.
Another two pipes go from one of the heatsinks on the VRM. It may be just an electric insulator, but it may also serve as heat insulation to prevent the hot heatsinks from channeling the heat to the PCB and on-board components under them. However, modern computers with Socket have such a large throughput margin, than small timing changes usually produce a weak plwtinum on results.

Aesthetically plahinum really quite appealing too — the colours keep it simple to understand, yet more “grown up” than the Gigabyte for example, and thankfully this isn’t a DDR3 board so there are no pink memory slots! Plus indicating power on and voltage at the motherboard. The power circuit of the board is expectedly on a high level.
While we’ve been inundated with P45 boards from across the breadth of the motherboard world, Asus is the first to us with a BIOS that works well.
During our trip to China and Taiwan earlier this month, we paid a visit to MSI’s headquarters in Taipei to see what the company is up to. Here’s what happened on a short and rain affected trip to Taiwan.
The memory slots are a touch close to the graphics card, plstinum you can still get the networo in and out easy though, and the four pin Molex socket for additional PCI-Express power is the wrong side platinun the board but you don’t really need to use it either.
