This motherboard has independent jacks for all analog inputs and outputs on the rear panel, so you can easily install a 5. Four of the six Serial ATA ports supported by the chipset are located between graphics card slots, and rald of them are potentially too close to the graphics card to avoid interference with large card coolers.
The audio section from this motherboard provides 7. During our overclocking tests we found the heatpipe system results were on par with the other offerings provided additional airflow was available around the CPU area when using a cooler such as the Tuniq Could this turn out to be a great bargain for budget gamers?
Thus, it follows in the footsteps of raidd cult classic AB9 QuadGT and promises to overclock just as well. Tax and Shipping While there’s nothing wrong with Intel’s Bearlake chipset, it hasn’t really set the world on fire.
The maximum sampling rate of its inputs is of 96 kHz, while its outputs supports up to kHz. Will the hefty investment be worth it for the Premium motherboard with on-board memory?
Only our high end modules from OCZ, Corsair, and Patriot were able to operate at tight timings with absolute stability. Voltage options are rather limited but the range of voltage options available is impressive.
In a fight to outdo the other manufacturers in the heatpipe wars, MSI mmsi a roller coaster design that looks as interesting as it works.
We think this was a smart choice. But while the features appear identical to the DDR3-supporting P35 Diamond, the Platinum doesn’t include raix Skytel card in its accessory kit. Intel P35 succeeds Intel P chipset, being targeted to mainstream motherboards. Benchmark Results Page The DDR3-supporting P35 Diamond had a few extra features, but these were all addressed through add-in cards. 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.

MSI has the bad habit of trying to be different as everybody else, and in order to enable dual channel you need to install your memory modules on sockets with different colors, not on sockets with the same color as it happens with all other motherboards.
You’ve seen the concept now how does it perform? Since the P35 chipset is becoming a treasure trove of hidden technology, we see if MSI has unlocked anything special in it’s Platinum model. The first x16 slot has a full 16 pathways and the second a pathetic 4 pathways, due to the mere 22 lanes found on Intel’s P35 Express chipset.
We take an in depth look at DDR3 to try to find out.

While these specs are enough for the average user someone thinking of working professionally with analog audio editing and capturing should look for a motherboard with at least 95 dB SNR and kHz sampling rate for its inputs.
