MSI 915G NEO2 PLATINUM MOTHERBOARD DRIVER

Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Socket on the other hand has a total of power related contacts, for power, for ground! As things get faster, components run hotter, that’s a simple rule in the world of computers. So the question arrises of how to feed future generation processors with the power requirements of yesterday’s CPU socket architecture? Privacy policy and Terms of Use. Enthusiasts in the crowd should be pleased to know the P Neo2 motherboard comes with a total of four fan headers. The best way to mange the heat inside a case is with good airflow; the Southbridge for instance is one of the hottest points on the motherboard since the heatsink is so small, so continual airflow is advisable.

If the roadmaps continue unchanged, socket should be the defacto Intel desktop standard for the next two years. Socket on the other hand has a total of power related contacts, for power, for ground!

One point not to be missed in all of this is that the socket retention mechanism is a precision piece of engineering, and proper installation and care is important.

That’s great for those who want to keep their systems running in prime condition.

MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – i915P Series

plainum To help alleviate potentially problems, MSI have included a small plastic installation tool to make inserting the socket processor a little easier, and foolproof. There are many reasons to why Intel moved from a pinned processor package, to pinless.

Furthermore, if you divide the number of pins by the area of the processor you’ll find that Socket chips are among the most dense ever.

Like every other high performance motherboard, the P Neo2 Platinum generates a ton of heat itself. If Intel had decided to introduce a higher pin density, it would have had to use a substantially larger substrate, which would have taken up more real estate on nwo2 already space mothedboard motherboard.

The best way to mange the heat inside a case is with good airflow; the Southbridge for instance is one of the hottest points on the motherboard since the heatsink is so small, so continual airflow is advisable.

It’s a handy tool for people who avoid instructions manuals. According to Intel, Socket Motherboare 4’s allocate 85 pins for power, for ground. Maximum Motherboard Overclocking and Conclusions.

As things get faster, components run hotter, that’s a simple rule in the world of computers. The skeptics will say that Olatinum wanted to stem the flow of RMA’s from processors with broken pins, but if you do a little digging, the real reasons are somewhat more complicated. This is intended to power single core processors that chew up around W of power.

So the question arrises platinu how to feed future generation processors with the power requirements of yesterday’s CPU socket architecture? The introduction of Socket addressed a variety of issues with Socket ; like excessive pressure from heatsinks which flexed the motherboard, not enough power-related pins to deal with high power consumption of emerging cores, and a few other points slightly more technical in nature.

On the power front, next platinhm processors are drawing much platijum electricity and die shrinks aren’t helping the situation as they once could. More contacts means more stable power for the processor, so you can bet that this form factor was designed with future generations in mind. A pinned solution would have posed another problem; packing all those pins into the same small space would have meant even more fragile pins than used with the socket design.
