MSI K92A PLATINUM DRIVER

The two AMD chipsets generate a moderate amount of heat, but this totally silent thermal solution is better than using a bunch of little noisy fans. This motherboard has almost everything a person needs, except perhaps a Port 80 card which would have been a nice added touch. There’s an interesting back story behind the wide adoption of polymer capacitors on higher end motherboards, if you have time read this PCSTATS article It’s actually a rather complicated story revolving around industry espionage In our experience with the MSI K9A2 Platinum we found it’s passive chipset solution quite effective at keeping temperatures in check.

MSI K9A2 Platinum – motherboard – ATX – Socket AM2+ – AMD 790FX Series

Solid Capacitors for motherboard longevity. AMD’s FX chipset is capped with distinctive round finned heatsink wrapped with heatpipes.

There’s an interesting back story behind the wide adoption of polymer capacitors on higher end motherboards, if you have time read this PCSTATS article It’s actually a rather complicated story revolving around industry espionage A clever solution for sure, and one that most motherboard manufacturers have embraced as a quiet way of managing the heat from chipsets.

In our experience with the MSI K9A2 Platinum we found it’s k92 chipset solution quite effective at keeping temperatures in check. The two AMD chipsets generate a moderate amount of heat, but this totally silent thermal solution is better than using a bunch of little noisy fans.

The tables have certainly turned in the other direction now, but AMD still makes very affordable processors which are ideal for mainstream PC and gaming demands. These are the same type of capacitors mostly found on videocards, and being a solid device they don’t leak or burst years down the road.

MSI K9A2 Platinum AMD FX Motherboard Review –

This motherboard has almost everything a person needs, except perhaps a Port 80 card which would have been a nice added touch. Chipset fans have a bad habit of m92a over time, or becoming hopelessly clogged with dust.

A pair of heatpipes snake their way through the components on the K9A2 K92x, connecting the Northbridge heatsink to platinun large thin fin copper heatsink mounted to the processor power supply MOSFETs. As always, it’s important to remember that if water cooling is used here, you have to point a fan in the direction of these passive heatsinks or the chipsets will not be adequately cooled.

MSI includes pretty much everything you’ll need to take advantage of the onboard peripherals in the box. MSI have assembled the K9A2 Platinum motherboard with entirely conductive polymer aluminum solid capacitors.
