Unfortunately image quality and sound improvements are quite subjective and difficult to test but we can definitely vouch for Dual CoreCell’s ability to keep noise at a minimum and overclock the system. The power-voltage-regulator is a standard 4-phase analogue part, which is required by Intel-specs but many companies avoid to use them because of cost. We would have much preferred the board automatically detect when an SLI configuration is installed. We had no issues setting up this board and the drivers for all the components installed without fault. This is a traditional MSI trait, that is different to virtually every other board on the market. Good Board A well-made board.

The “Platinum” brand shouldn’t feature them. Well the new nForce i Ultra chipset seems to fit the inexpensive bill quite nicely, and not everyone needs SLI! You may also like. Dual CoreCell promises to improve performance, cut system noise output, enhance 3D performance along with providing a better image quality and finally improve ;latinum circuitry which will decrease signal noise and provide better signal quality.
The MSI X38 Diamond is arriving next month will have tons of features in its flagship product, including a revised liquid Circu-Pipe heatpipe arrangement.
Bottom Line This board is well designed, for the most part, and has plenty of useful connectivity options. This board is well designed, for the most part, and has plenty of useful connectivity options. I need power and lots of it.
MSI P6N SLI Platinum
The same colour means that you are using a single channel not dual-channel. With a very dli layout, the board has plenty of room between all the ports and slots, and has numerous useful connectivity features.
This is a traditional MSI trait, that is different to virtually every other board on the market.

This method didn’t seem to dynamically change the speed of the fan as the load on the system increased. Cooling to the chipsets and transistors around the CPU is provided by heat sinks smi attached heat pipes. These days virtually every manufacturer supports dynamic overclocking, fan speed control, voltage adjustments along with a spiffy software interface. Plqtinum this construction will be enough for good overclocking scores remains to be seen, but I would recommend 5-phase digital or at least 6-phases for anyone interesting in overclocking, because it should provide better stability and prolonged lifespan for the board.

Gaming on a budget? Auto, Manual NB Voltage: Among other modern technologies we all know heatpipes are great, but this time, they’re circular. Right of the green memory sockets you’ll find the CPU-fan-header, which is a quite uncommon position, but also very convenient when you have to change your fan. With support for a front side bus speed up to MHz, this board may also be able to accommodate the new CPUs that Intel will be releasing later this year.

It will hinder airflow for most cooling solutions except top-blower CPU-coolers. The Core 2 Quad processors and Vista Premium are the basic functions of this motherboard. Could this turn out to be a great bargain for budget gamers?
This item doesn’t belong on this page. The accessories are satisfying except the cables, which are the cheapest I have seen for a long time and normally packed only with low-cost boards.
MSI continues the trend to make all solid capacitors Conductive Polymer Aluminium Solid Capacitors boards introduced by Gigabyte about eight months ago.
I’ve had this board in service platinkm Auto Core 2 Duo: MSI X38 mobo to have many new features.
Instead of putting the two sticks of memory in the same coloured slots like you would elsewhere, you now put one stick in green and one in orange, keeping the alternation. Socket P Computer Motherboard for Intel. MSI’s Dual CoreCell software not only allows you to adjust motherboard FSB, videocard core and memory clock speeds, it also gives you the options to adjust CPU, memory, videocard core and memory voltages!
We would have much preferred the board automatically detect when an SLI configuration is installed. The sockets have enough slund to the first PCIe x16 slot, so upgrading your memory can be done without removing your graphic-card.
