MSI P7N SLI Platinum 750i based motherboard

Packaging and package

Packaging
 
MSI have decided to go with a space scene for their P7N Platinum motherboard. The rear has a holograph on it and it certainly would give a good impression on the shelf, if a little geeky.

The inside of the box is pretty well packed, although it shows that this isn't MSI's highest end board. You certainly should not have a problem with courier damage.
 
packaging
 
Now onto the package.
 
Package
 
The package with the P7N SLI Platinum is loaded up with the following:
 
* 4 x SATA cables
* 1 x IDE HDD cable
* 1 x IDE FDD cable
* 1 x Rear IO plate
* 1 x SLI bridge
* 2 x SATA to Molex power adaptor
* PCI bracket - dual USB 2.0 and single Firewire port
* Set of MSI easy connectors
* Driver CD
* Utilities CD
* Quick install guide
* Full manual
 
package
 
The package is complete without being overwhelming or over the top. Of course, as this is a mid-range board this is what you would expect, although MSI have done a good job with the bundle in my opinion.

Nice review mate and a decent board to boot!

Now all that MSI need to do is remove Zippy, Bungle and George from the "board colour scheme" team, and they'll have a perfect board

Seriously tho...surprisingly decent OC results from an Nvidia chipset.Quote

That is some serious overclocking results.. I mean it beat the others by quite a chunk! Also the 0% CPU utilization was quite impressive.Quote

Great review.

I`m still feeling these 780 boards are `good` without being great.

Some excel with something in 1 area and lose something in another, all very minimally. But appear solid.

Like to see an SLI vS CF of the `best` of the 780i`s vS the `best` 35/38. From a gaming pov, be pretty interesting. All the same stuff cept the gfxcards, that perhaps are close as single cards maybe.

With the prices tho, I don`t think u can turn ur nose up at them.Quote

if they combined that boards performance and features with the DFi black and green colour scheme, you'd be onto a winner

performs sweet though Quote
