Integrated Controllers Audio, based on channel 7. Write a comment below. PCB layout especially for a top product is practically ideal! Indeed, a top motherboard that does not support Core 2 is just out of date now. But we actually have no gripes with the integrated audio. Thus, MSI’s choice of the cheap budget codec instead of the cheap top codec seems very strange. Let’s speak of the differences.

Proprietary technologies and peculiarities DigiCell — monitoring system parameters under Windows and mzi voltages, rotational speed of fans, and overclocking Live Update 3 — checking for BIOS and driver updates, downloading and installing these components in semiautomatic mode, including flashing new BIOS versions under Windows D-Bracket 2 – a set of LEDs on a bracket that informs a user on startup problems.

A relatively large heatsink on Northbridge has no fan now.

So we had to content ourselves with only similar configurations. The codec used in this motherboard does not support any interesting functions like encoding into AC3 on the fly.

Remarkably, sm-7246 shell of the bundled CD has a tabbed page with links to web sites with useful programs. There are practically no changes in exterior, only heatsinks on the chipset bridges are replaced by copper ones.

We like this approach much better than the squirrel-like trend to stuff the disc with useless free utilities. Indeed, a top motherboard that does not support Core 2 is just out of date now. So this motherboard can be a reasonable compromise: Frequency response from 40 Hz to 15 kHzdB: Write a comment below. Windows XP SP2 As the two iX-based motherboards in our lab were tested by different procedures due to the lack of time for sterling testswe have tested the MSI X Platinum in two sessions in different configurations, in order to compare this model with its competitors.


Thus, MSI’s choice of the cheap budget codec instead of the cheap top codec seems very strange.

But field-effect transistors in the CPU power converter do well even without heatsinks — as there are lots of them 16their temperature does not exceed reasonable limits even without cooling from the CPU fan. On the whole, we have only one question: There is absolutely nothing outstanding about this motherboard. sm-7246

But the analog output quality is on a very good level. Noise level, dB A: Please enable JavaScript to view ms-7264 comments powered by Disqus.

Changes in the set of integrated controllers are not significant: The motherboards are kindly provided by the manufacturer Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt. The box looks similar, but it’s changed its orientation from portrait to landscape; the “PowerUp Edition” label marks the improved model.

CPU voltage conversion circuits are the same, just some electrolytic capacitors from Matsushita are replaced by polymer capacitors from Sanyo. The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested.

This motherboard makes a good use of models with the PCI Express interface. Some time ago all manufacturers would include their own Linux versions…: Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt.

Integrated Controllers Audio, based on channel 7. All connectors are arranged to make it convenient to plug cables and to lay them out in an optimal way; no bulky components block other devices; CMOS reset button instead of a jumper is easily accessible mzi the motherboard is installed in a PC case.

Video 3Digests Video cards: But unfortunately, the motherboard has only two PCI slots, and the second video card for CrossFire is likely to block one of them — that’s an evident mistake of engineers. User’s Guide in English Cables: For some reason, this motherboard lacks this feature, increased voltages are indicated with blinking text, which has a disastrous effect on usability.

Of course, the PowerUp Edition motherboard is a more interesting solution. Auto or a specified multiplier to the FSB frequency:
