MSI includes pretty much everything you’ll need to take advantage of the onboard peripherals in the box.

In our experience with the MSI K9A2 Platinum we found it’s passive chipset solution quite platinuk at keeping temperatures in check. Chipset fans have a bad habit of failing over time, or becoming hopelessly clogged with dust. A clever solution for sure, and one that most motherboard manufacturers have embraced as a quiet way of managing the heat from chipsets.

Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Solid Capacitors for motherboard longevity. The two AMD chipsets generate a moderate amount of heat, but this totally silent thermal solution is better than using a bunch of little noisy fans. About Us Employment Privacy Policy.

There’s an interesting back story behind the wide adoption of polymer capacitors on higher end motherboards, if you have time read this PCSTATS article It’s actually a rather complicated story revolving around industry espionage A pair of heatpipes snake their way through the components on the K9A2 Platinum, connecting the Northbridge heatsink to a large thin fin copper heatsink mounted to the processor power supply MOSFETs.

This motherboard platibum almost everything a person needs, except perhaps a Port 80 card which would have been a nice added pltainum. These are the same type of capacitors mostly found on videocards, and being a solid device they don’t leak or burst years down the road.

Preview – MSI K92A Platinum, Part 2 : AMD FX Chipset and Motherboard Preview –

AMD’s FX chipset is capped with distinctive round finned heatsink wrapped with heatpipes. We’ll leave the Core 2 Duo vs.

Phenom argument for another article like this. MSI have assembled the K9A2 Platinum motherboard with entirely conductive polymer aluminum solid capacitors. The tables have certainly turned in the other direction now, but Ppatinum still makes very affordable processors which are ideal for mainstream PC and gaming demands.
