MSI 915G NEO2 PLATINUM MOTHERBOARD DRIVER

This is intended to power single core processors that chew up around W of power. Enthusiasts in the crowd should be pleased to know the P Neo2 motherboard comes with a total of four fan headers. That’s great for those who want to keep their systems running in prime condition. More contacts means more stable power for the processor, so you can bet that this form factor was designed with future generations in mind. The skeptics will say that Intel 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. 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. It’s a handy tool for people who avoid instructions manuals.

A pinned solution would have posed another problem; packing all those pins into the same small space would have meant even more fragile pkatinum than used with the socket design.

Enthusiasts in the crowd should be pleased to know the P Neo2 motherboard comes with a total of four fan headers.

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. Beginners Guides Cases and Access.

This is intended to power single core processors that chew up around W of power. So the question arrises of how to feed future generation processors with the power requirements of yesterday’s CPU socket architecture?

Socket on the other hand has a total of power related contacts, for power, for ground! That’s great for those who want to keep their systems running in prime condition.

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 an already space deprived motherboard.

It’s a handy tool for platunum who avoid instructions manuals. 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.

On the power front, next generation processors are drawing much more electricity mootherboard die shrinks aren’t helping the situation as they once could. Privacy policy and Terms of Use.

If the roadmaps continue unchanged, socket should be the defacto Intel desktop standard for the next two years. About Us Employment Privacy Policy. Like every other high performance motherboard, the P Neo2 Platinum generates a ton of heat itself. There are many reasons to why Intel moved from a pinned processor package, to pinless. 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.

The skeptics will say that Intel 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.

According to Intel, Socket Pentium 4’s allocate 85 pins for power, for ground. More contacts means more stable power for the motherboad, so you can bet that nei2 form factor was designed with future generations in mind.

Maximum Motherboard Overclocking and Conclusions. To help alleviate potentially problems, MSI have included a small plastic installation tool to make inserting the socket processor a little easier, and foolproof.

The introduction of Socket addressed a variety of issues with Socket ; like excessive pressure from heatsinks which flexed the mothherboard, not enough power-related pins to deal with high power consumption of emerging cores, and a few other points slightly more technical in nature. As things get faster, components run hotter, that’s a simple rule in the world of computers.
