Though a bit expensive, they platnum solidly packed with cabling, brackets and manuals as well as additional and chipset controllers and ports. The frame is fixed to the motherboard in four instead of two points. In this case, when the temperature is below the minimal threshold, the rotational speed is kept to minimum. It’s not installed on the center of the chip.

The heatsink gets very hot. This is a couple of similar boards the differences are described below occupying high positions in MSI’s product series. Note that enthusiast series MSI Diamond, in particular will be still bundled with robust cooling systems for this chipset.
MSI K9N Platinum, AM2+, AMD (MS-7250-020) Motherboard
It overhangs a motherboard at one side, tied to it through an insulating pad. Note that the motherboard has no jumpers to select video slot modes, they are switched on the chipset level.
The core logic chip on the first production motherboards has an official designation already. Indeed, the retention system of the new boxed coolers has been modified four holes at the edge of the framebut traditional projections are preserved as well for compatibility.
Bottom line At the moment we have nothing to compare these motherboards with, and they are almost platinim to each other with an exception of SLI support.
Performance The performance issues are platinjm in our general article about the new socket. MSI engineers use a long low-profile heatsink.
The board is equipped with a 4-pin ATX12V connector.
There are no empty seats on this motherboard — Platinum series from MSI traditionally differs llatinum “simple” models by a full set of additional controllers, provided by the board design. But if you had such plans, then you have at least two motherboards that can help build a good system with Socket AM2.
Memory voltage regulator uses capacitors from Rubycon and is reinforced with L elements. Thus, only coolers with the original retention system may be left out of it – their installation required removing the standard frame and securing the assembly right through the mounting holes in a motherboard.
BioShock Infinite and Metro: For the only difference that Socket has three of them at each side of the socket, and now only the central one is left. The second port yellowalways operating in PCI Express x1 mode, can be used for the second video card – for another pair of monitors.

Still, considering the previous experience, we can say that both K9N Platinum boards are interesting products. Since we had enough time to look at peculiarities of AMD’s new platform, let’s not delay and proceed to the first Socket AM2 motherboards in our lab kindly provided by MSI. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. We do not see any sense in rushing towards AMD’s new platform. When the upper threshold is crossed, the fan accelerates to its maximum speed. Look at the passive cooling of the chipset – such a solution was exotic for nForce4, but it promises to become typical for the th series.

But if you plan on testing this system in an overclocked mode, you will still need additional cooling. When the temperature is within the specified range, the rotational speed is raised stepwise. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Besides, video cards in PCI Express x16 slots can be powered from the standard 4-pin peripheral connector.
The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested.
