MSI P6N SLI Platinum Driver
This can also be seen with the MSI P6N SLI Platinum as well. While the rest of the benchmark showed results that are mostly on par with each other, the board's. The MSI Platinum is built to run the fastest Intel processors. With a Socket geared for Intel Core2 series. With our second i SLI board we ask, whose is better, ECS or MSI? And do you need to spend extra for the i chipset?

MSI P6N SLI Platinum Driver
Due the increased usage, there is a possibility that the price premium compared to conventional motherboards will decrease in the near future. There is also an audio part with 5.
The power-voltage-regulator is a standard 4-phase analogue part, which is required by Intel-specs but many companies avoid to use them because of cost. This is nothing fancy like 5-phase digital or 6- 8- or even phase we've seen so far.
If this MSI P6N SLI Platinum will be enough for good overclocking scores remains to be seen, but I would recommend 5-phase digital or at least 6-phases for anyone interesting in overclocking, because it should provide better stability and prolonged lifespan for the board. At the same time it is reducing the strain of the phases which should also reduce heat. Only three of the four phases are covered by the Heatpipe-Cooling system, introduced by ABIT a long time ago and most common on MSI P6N SLI Platinum for the enthusiast and technophile markets.
The pin power-plug is positioned on the outer edge on the right side of the board and guarantees easy accessibility but sadly the 8-pin EPS-plug is positioned most incontinently in the middle of the board, too close to the heat pipe, for my taste.

It will hinder airflow for most cooling solutions except top-blower CPU-coolers. You should first install the cooler and then plug-in the 8-pin power to avoid troubles while assembling your computer.
The black PCB and the muted colours are pleasant for the eyes, but the colour-scheme of the memory sockets may confuse the average Intel motherboard users. The same colour means that you are using a single channel not dual-channel. For a dual-channel setup you must place one stick in each colour.
The user manual is well written, providing novice users with enough guidance to make it through hardware installation. MSI also provide a poster sized quick installation guide to get you started on the right path.
Solid Capacitors in place of the Electrolytic variety Microstar Computer, the manufacturer of the P6N SLI Platinum, has chosen to equip this motherboard entirely with solid state capacitors as opposed to the electrolytic variety. A few years back there was a huge problem with motherboards that were suffering from burst and leaking electrolytic MSI P6N SLI Platinum. This industry-wide event blossomed into a full blown epidemic, and almost single handily dragged ABIT's name through the mud.
The general consensus MSI P6N SLI Platinum that ABIT boards were most affected at the time. These are the same type of capacitors mostly found on videocards, or in the CPU's power supply circuitry. The gist of the situation is that MSI have produced a motherboard with only this kind of capacitor, because it improves overall stability of the motherboard as the years roll by.
Being a solid-state device, the physical MSI P6N SLI Platinum which caused poor quality electrolytic capacitors to burst after 3 years are a non-issue. If you'd like to read up on the back story that led to the whole problem of burst and leaking caps, have a look at this PCSTATS article. It's actually a rather complicated story of industrial espionage
