    HEXUS.reviews :: MSI P965 Platinum mainboard

    Supporting the aforementioned PCI Express, DDR2 and Intel Core 2 Duo processors, the P965 Platinum is the premium model in MSI's Intel P965 mainboard range. Can it pull a "P5W64", but for a slightly different crowd?

    Nice to see you've got Rys working again!

    The placement of the SSI connector is pretty much perfect for me (as I'm using a P180 case, with the PSU at the bottom) but I appreciate that this is a rarity, and they could have done something with that ATA connector .

    Hope to see a lot more 965 boards on the market...then I might actually decide to buy one

    And to tell the truth, when I'm doing layout work, I tend to do it in terms of my own chassis layout more than anything else. I'll spare a thought for upside down ATX next time. Cheers for ze feedback!

    Quick question: Why the photo of the back?

    It is hardly ever included in motherboard reviews, so I wonded if it is to illustrate as specific point.

    It's like a starlight sky...

    But it also shows absence of any pre-fitted backplate I guess

    Just for completeness more than anything, but sometimes you get something worth a peek at. ASUS StackCool springs to mind, for example.
