MSI P965 Platinum Review

The MSI P965 Platinum is an LGA775 processor based motherboard using Intel’s P965 chipset that supports up to a 1066MHz front side bus. The 4 DDR2 DIMM sockets support up to 8GB of RAM (4GB if using DDR2-800). Support for up to 7 SATAII drives is provide by the ICH8R South Bridge and JMicron JMB361 chip with the 6 controlled by the ICH8R supporting RAID modes 0, 1, 5 and 10.


Two PCI-E x16 (electrically 1 x16 and 1 x4), 2 PCI-E x1 and 2 PCI slots provide plenty of expandability. The onboard gigabit LAN, 8 (4 back panel and 4 internal header) USB 2.0 ports and the 2 (1 back panel and 1 internal header) FireWire ports, and 8 channel audio with coax and optical SPDIF outs mean you don’t need to expand if you don’t want to.
