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. Logitech’s intelligent solution to their smart home restores Harmony. If you have dual-slot coolers on your GPUs, you will lose the slot directly under the PCIe x16 slot however, so keep that in mind as you build out your system. Did I mention that the heatsink on this motherboard was big? Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Note plastic coating on the bottom of the heatsinks, where they don’t touch hot components. The power circuit of the board is expectedly on a high level.

Intel P45 Motherboard Roundup: MSI, ASUS and Gigabyte | MSI P45 Platinum
You can read about its features in the corresponding review. If you have dual-slot coolers on your GPUs, you will lose the slot directly under the PCIe x16 slot however, so keep that in mind as you build out your system.
As we increased timings to in DDR mode, we expected no performance records from this motherboard.
MSI P45 Platinum – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – P45 Series
Note plastic coating on the bottom of the heatsinks, where they don’t touch hot components. It plafinum imposing, it does not take up much room, it does not interfere with most CPU coolers, and most importantly, it’s not very expensive: The board offers six USB 2. It actually looks pretty cool to my eyes and somewhat resembles an engine block.
Core 2 still lives!! The cooling system is a real eye stopper. The opening between the NIC stack and the eSATA port is in place to allow air to flow through the case, through the heatpipe fins and out the back. Looking at the whole board you first pick up the massive heatsink and heatpipe configuration that covers the north bridge and south bridge chips in addition to the MOSFETs along the paltinum of the CPU socket.
Write a comment below. Video 3Digests Video cards: Note the on-board indicators. We’ll compare MSI P45 Platinum with several motherboards with the same chipset and several competing ones.
It’s seems strange to use such a crude tool for overclocking. Note that the IDE controller installed on this motherboard modern chipsets from Intel lack the integrated solution in their Southbridge puts up praiseworthy performance.
Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. Besides, functionality of these products is vast rather than unique — that is it’s a usual top series similar to Deluxe series from ASUS. The power circuit of the board is expectedly on a high platinhm. By the way, this motherboard turned out quite temperamental about memory: However, modern computers with Socket platinun such a large throughput margin, than small timing changes usually produce a weak effect on results.
MSI P45 Platinum, Intel Motherboard
Now it’s turn to take a look at a top motherboard from the Platinum series. The NB heatsink is mounted with normal metal screws instead of plastic latches on the back side of the PCB.
Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Intel P45 Motherboard Roundup: This design was actually started by ASUS a couple of years back but it seems to have caught on quite well. You must admit that the staff on [really hot] chipset components looks different, and its layer is really thin.
A quarter century tour; a Space Marine’s job is never done. Logitech’s intelligent solution to their smart home restores Harmony. We can also mention a couple of jumpers not even buttons! You may learn more details about motherboard specs and read the list of processors ms memory modules tested for compatibility on the official product page links at the end of the article.
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.
