The monitoring section of BIOS Setup shows efficiency factor of the switching voltage regulator power at the input of the PWM controller and at the output in order to evaluate efficiency of the CPU power circuitry. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Any top model manufacturers will hardly offer other products on X48 will try to distinguish itself in shape and number of heat pipes in its cooling system, of course. Intel Core 2 Duo E 2. Besides, MSI engineers borrowed a very good idea from Shuttle: The motherboard uses an unusual switching voltage regulator for a CPU: According to the documentation, the motherboard should be equipped with power and reset buttons they were not installed in our sample , which may be a nice addon for some users.

BIOS Setup will allow to choose one of performance 4x8c and adjust its parameters, when necessary. In this situation, the review of a motherboard should be preceded by a description of the X48 chipset.

There may be only an insignificant performance difference between the motherboards. In return, analog audio output is on a very good level, being one of the best representatives of the integrated audio. In fact, motherboard manufacturers should not be blamed: Besides, it solved almost all problems with its dimensions.
We’ve already seen a similar solution in P35 Platinum by the way, this implementation of Circu-Pipe is much smaller and has fewer heat sinks, although the chipset is a tad hotter because of the higher FSB clock rate. Judging by photos on the MSI web site, PCB layout of the retail product will remain the same however, the third heat sink and its heat pipe will be removed. mei
Auto or a multiplier to the FSB frequency: Video 3Digests Video cards: Indeed, many computer enthusiasts, who plan an upgrade with the launch of faster processors, msk not willing to change their expensive memory kits for overclockers. Nevertheless, this very motherboard is a good choice: The motherboard uses an unusual switching voltage regulator for a CPU: Moreover, when we plugged a DVD drive to the interface without connecting a power cable, it froze the system at the c48c of device initialization it may bring inexperienced users to x48cc.
That’s the explanation for the current situation, typical of transition periods, when even top motherboards on new chipsets support an old memory type, even though enthusiasts shouldn’t be scared away by high prices.
Besides it can boast of a cunning algorithm for supplying memory voltage—it recalculates the last voltage specified in BIOS Setup for the current memory type.
Write a comment below. On the whole, Xbased motherboards won’t have a serious impact on the market: So we’d like to thank MSI and a number of other companies that support this initiative.
We mei tested memory modules with XMP so far, even though the X48 chipset was the first to offer such support. By the way, the cooling system of the chipset does a great job, so heat sinks on chipset bridges are barely warm. These cards can be flipped to fit a slot type. There wouldn’t have been anything strange in this fact manufacturers often design common PCB layouts for similar motherboards—but the fact is, X48 Platinum significantly differs from X48C Platinum in PCB design in particular, the top model supports only DDR3 and has four slots for such memory.
Our Original Design award is well deserved.
It looks unusual, but it’s very convenient: To make up for the bulky solution, these stubs are equipped with LEDs that indicate the current memory type and help diagnose startup problems if they don’t light up, you have a problem. Moreover, there have appeared some problems with the layout of elements: Only the second glance reveals a little discrepancy: Integrated Controllers Audio, mmsi on the channel 7.
Unfortunately, Dual Core Center failed to work with this motherboard—probably a newer version of this utility is required. Besides, the new motherboard allows to use DDR3 modules in their native modes.
MSI X48C Platinum – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – X48
Similar changes will be made to all desktop chipsets from Intel, the series will be renamed from 3x to 4x. But reality was crudely different.
The monitoring section of BIOS Setup shows efficiency factor of the switching voltage regulator power at the input of the PWM controller and at the output in order to evaluate efficiency of the CPU power circuitry. Motherboard manufacturers also offer an alternative—bus-overclocked products on the P35 mmsi review such a motherboard from Biostar in the future. Flashing the latest BIOS version was not very easy: According to the documentation, the motherboard should be equipped with s48c and reset buttons they were not installed in our samplewhich may be a nice addon for some users.
