Four 975X Motherboards For Core 2 Duo

MSI 975X Platinum Power Up Edition: MSI's Come-Back

Feature Overview

MSI equips its flagship product with lots of interfaces, including serial and parallel ports. To offer more than Intel's standard four-port Serial ATA/300 controller, MSI integrated a JMB361 controller chip, which offers one additional UltraATA/133 channel. The only component we missed was an optical digital audio output.
