Intel P45 has arrived. Aesthetically it’s 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! The netbook revolution continues to motor forwards, and with the launch of Intel’s new tiny Atom processor just a short while away – we take a quick first look to see what MSI’s new inch Wind is like to use. At least the motherboard detected our test processors correctly, so we had no problems with not using these jumpers unlike MSI PD. The motherboard supports CrossFireX, one PCI slot will certainly remain free even if you install two graphics cards with bulky cooling systems. Anyway, all heatsinks remain warm, far from the critical temperatures.

Aesthetically it’s 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! We’ll compare MSI P45 Platinum with several motherboards with the same chipset and several competing ones.
The netbook revolution continues to motor forwards, and with the launch of Intel’s new tiny Atom processor just a short while away – we take a quick first look to see what MSI’s new inch Wind is like to use. Video 3Digests Video cards: During our trip to China and Taiwan earlier this month, we paid a visit to MSI’s headquarters in Taipei to see what the newtork is up to.
iXBT Labs – MSI P45 Platinum Motherboard
Note plastic coating on the bottom of the heatsinks, where they don’t touch hot components. We have nothing to ;latinum about the bundle of this motherboard, just your average bundle you can have a look at all components in the photo gallery. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. Here’s what happened on a short and rain affected trip to Taiwan.
MSI P45 Platinum Motherboard
Joined with the plate on the Northbridge fortunately, it’s solderingall the pipes bend upwards to form a “fountain” with extra finning. If you have an Eee already – you might want to look away now. The DS3R legend is back, and we take the latest budget “energy efficient” P45 from Gigabyte to the cleaners, to see if its whites are whiter than white.
The MSI P45 Platinum Series : Preview – MSI P45 “Eaglelake” Motherboards –
In this case we even had to put a thick piece of padding under the heatsink to avoid its skewing. We take it for a full spin to see if Intel’s highly anticipated new mainstream chipset is a worthy successor to the massively popular P And finally, the fifth pipe goes from the second farther heatsink on DrMOS chips.
Naturally curiosity got the better of us so we had to check it out!
Intel P45 has arrived. However, modern computers with Socket have such a large throughput margin, than small timing changes usually produce a weak effect on results.
MSI P45 Platinum – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – P45 Series
Moreover, when the system is working at full steam, all these regulators can reduce the number of active channels to lower power consumption and consequently temperature in idle mode. We felt the P35 Platinum was certainly a solid board—even if it wasn’t exceptional at the time of launch—and although we didn’t review one of the P35 Neo boards, we know MSI sold these very attractively priced boards more than anything else.
The chipset and memory modules are powered by their own dual-channel circuits based on the classic technology with MOSFETs. The question is though: Note that the IDE controller installed on this motherboard modern chipsets from Intel lack the integrated solution in their Southbridge puts up praiseworthy performance.
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. Board Layout The general layout is really very good — we plainum no real issues at all.
Memory Performance 8 – Subsystem Testing: It’s seems strange to use such a crude tool for overclocking. Note the platnum set of elements on the rear panel: Besides, the motherboard offers the following extra functions:. MSI assures that it’s done by popular demand of novice overclockers, who don’t want to mess with complex settings.
There are no other layout peculiarities that could affect functionality — only the power and reset buttons on the PCB haven’t become usual things yet even though they are mandatory on top models.
