MSI 925X Neo Platinum, Continued
MSI has only given the processor a 3-phase power converter. Four phases are now standard for P4 motherboards, even though this would only make a difference under constant maximum load.
MSI was a little chintzy here, giving only one of the LAN connections Gigabit speed.
Broadcom's 5751KFB is used as a Gigabit controller on a PCI-Express port.
The C-Media CMI9880 provides the board with 8-channel sound.
The accessories are a bit spartan for a board named a "Platinum Edition". Also, for round cables they simply stuck regular old flat cables into a plastic sheath, which makes the cable really stiff and inflexible.
