  • Full Solid CAP and big heat-pipe MB on Intel platform – MSI P35 Platinum first look

    On Intel chipset product line schedule, they usually renew the whole
    products series from half to one year.
    The 975X chipset exist for a long time, the P965 also launched for almost a
    year.
    The upcoming Intel new generation processor will speed up to FSB1333MHz
    and DDR3 architecture, then the P35 and X38 series chipsets will become the
    new generation leader in second half 2007.

    The board I got this time is P35 chipset based – MSI P35 Platinum – DDR2
    The box design, this time they use different theme on cover, got another
    better style


    Inside packing, the cable color and wording is also enhanced from old design.

    Even P35 have same design with 965P on single PCI-E x16 lane design.
    But higher level boards will make them as dual VGA layout.
    Audio chip use ALC888T, 7.1 channel HD audio with mant solid CAPs.


    Down right side
    5 SATAII and 1 IDE port.
    Red bottom is for Clear CMOS function.


    DRAM part
    4DIMM DDRII

      CPU PWM part use 4 phase design


      IO shield
      Except 1394, also support 2 extra eSATA ports


      This time MSI have the brake through design on heatpipe design compare
      with their old products. They have 4 special parts to high light.
      The first part: up left on CPU socket.
      The inscription with the pipe name “CIRCU-PIPE”, looks good.


      Second part: Up right side on CPU socket.

        Third part: North bridge pipe
        It’s special design that I’ve never seen before. Comes with bigger surface to
        spread the heat, seems better then other normal design.


        Forth part: South bridge.
        The copper and pipe is thick in heatsink.


        The testing modules


        On this coming P35 product, we see MSI comes with enough function and
        better look hestsink with special design,
        The special feature and outlook design is almost align to a higher standard
        with the three big MB manufactors.
        This time MSI coming very fast with well prepared, hope MSI can have more
        brake through on overclock limited, then their P35 series will have good
        reputation on P35 market soon.
