When the temperature is within the specified range, the rotational speed is raised stepwise.
MSI K9N Platinum, AM2+, AMD (MS-7250-020) Motherboard
But if you had such plans, then you have at least two motherboards that can help platinu, a good system with Socket AM2. You can select two modes of the CPU fan, to control its rotational speed: The second port yellowalways operating in PCI Express x1 mode, can be used for the second video card – for another pair of monitors. The motherboard was stable at the standard frequencies.
Note the support for two gigabit network adapters, integrated into the new chipset.
Though a bit expensive, they are solidly packed with cabling, brackets and manuals as well as additional and chipset controllers and ports. Smart Fan mode is available only with a 4-pin cooler. All capacitors are always from one manufacturer, but not from the first echelon unknown brand.
The core logic chip on the first production motherboards has an official designation already. We do not see any sense in rushing towards AMD’s new platform.
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. Video 3Digests Video cards: 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.
Bottom line At the moment we have nothing to compare these motherboards with, and they are almost identical to each other with an exception of SLI support. Indeed, the retention system of the new boxed coolers has been modified four holes at the edge of the framebut traditional projections are preserved as well for compatibility. But rumors about the incompatibility with Socket coolers are exaggerated. The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested.
MSI engineers use a long low-profile heatsink. ppatinum

Memory voltage regulator uses capacitors from Rubycon and is reinforced with L elements. But if you plan on testing this system in an overclocked mode, you will still need additional cooling.
MSI K9N Platinum – motherboard – ATX – Socket AM2 – nForce Ultra Overview – CNET
It’s inferior to the Diamond series only in k9m bundle and “safety margin” of the cooling system. Plztinum, considering the previous experience, we can say that both K9N Platinum boards are interesting products. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Note that the motherboard has no jumpers to select video slot modes, they are switched on the chipset level. In this case, when the temperature is below the minimal threshold, the rotational speed is kept to minimum.
Performance The performance issues are described in our general article about the new socket. It’s not installed on the center of the chip. The heatsink gets very hot. A usual feature of such boards is rich functionality and thorough packages without any fanciful expensive toys.
The board is equipped with a 4-pin ATX12V connector. Besides, video cards in PCI Express x16 slots can be powered from the standard 4-pin peripheral connector. The frame is fixed to the motherboard in four instead of two points.
