All capacitors are always from one manufacturer, but not from the first echelon unknown brand. But if you had such plans, then you have at least two motherboards that can help build a good system with Socket AM2.
It’s inferior to the Diamond series only in its bundle and “safety margin” of the cooling system. When the temperature is within the specified range, the rotational speed is raised stepwise. It overhangs a motherboard at one side, tied to it through an insulating pad. Look at the passive cooling of the chipset – such a solution was exotic for nForce4, but it promises to become typical for the th series.

MSI K9N Platinum (nForce Ultra) –
Performance The performance issues are described in our general article about the new socket. In this case, when the temperature is below the minimal threshold, the rotational speed is kept to minimum.
Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: The motherboard was stable at the standard frequencies. The core logic chip on the first production motherboards has an platknum designation already. We do not see any sense in rushing towards AMD’s new platform. The heatsink gets very hot.

paltinum But rumors about the incompatibility with Socket coolers are exaggerated. Still, considering the previous experience, we can say that both K9N Platinum boards are interesting products.
Besides, video cards in PCI Express x16 slots can be powered from the standard 4-pin peripheral connector. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Memory voltage regulator uses capacitors from Rubycon and is reinforced with L elements.
Though a bit expensive, they are solidly packed with cabling, brackets and manuals as well as additional and chipset controllers and ports. A usual feature of such boards is rich functionality and thorough packages without any fanciful expensive toys.

Since we had enough time to look at peculiarities of AMD’s new platform, let’s not delay and proceed to the first Socket AM2 motherboards in our lab kindly provided by MSI. It’s not installed pltinum the center of the chip.
Video 3Digests Video cards: The board is equipped with a 4-pin ATX12V connector. Smart Fan mode is available only with a 4-pin cooler. There are no empty seats on this motherboard — Platinum series from MSI traditionally differs from “simple” models by a full set of additional controllers, provided by the board design.
The frame is fixed to the motherboard in four instead of two points. But if you plan on testing this system in an overclocked mode, you will still need additional cooling. Note that the motherboard has no jumpers to select video slot modes, they are switched on the chipset level.
The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested. For the only difference that Socket has three of them at each side of the socket, and now only the central one is left.
