Product information: P45 Neo3-FR Intel P45 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 MotherboardMSI is more concerned on how it can contribute to reduce the causes of global warming. As energy prices increase and energy resources decrease, MSI has recently developed the mainboard with unique “DrMOS”. Integrated onto today's high-end mainboard, it features excellent energy-saving capability and offers high-computing performance and productivity without depleting and harming the Earth's natural resources. MSI’s P45 series mainboards with unique server-class DrMOS is carefully and exclusively developed to provide superior energy-saving function and maintain an ultimate low temperature operation. It also comes with three incredible features; GreenPower for conserving energy, XpressCool for zero noise and effective heat dissipation, and RapidBoost for high computing performance. MSI P45 series mainboard stands on 93% power efficient on CPU PWM side, provides superior energy efficiency and low temperature operation, as well as high computing power and performance. In full loading system, DrMOS drops the surface temperature by 16 degrees. Moreover, it offers excellent temperature stability and maintains low noise operation. Mr. Vincent Lai, MSI global marketing director, proudly states: "The P45 mainboard has surpassed various aspects of the board’s overall functioning and performance. Equipped with DrMOS, consumers will enjoy a rich computing experience and advance super energy-efficient technology that benefit users and the environment".
One of the things that the MSI R&D team is proud of is that the mainboard can accurately control the temperature and continue to maintain a low temperature. P45 series mainboard is equipped with the unique Circu-Pipe 2 and Circu-Pipe Liquid cooling solutions that effectively reduce the high temperature from the chipset and provide the best total thermal solution for the whole system. Circu-Pipe 2 is a new generation of thermal cooling heat-pipe technology. With the copper blades design, Circu-Pipe 2 can increase the thermal efficiency. After the test, the Circu-Pipe was able to maintain the temperature of the north bridge chip in 36 degrees which resolves the issue of reaching high temperatures during high-computing load.
The mainboard comes with the latest GreenPower Center software that is characterized by high efficiency. This exclusive GreenPower design can reach multi-phase power quality and increase the efficiency of power conversion. This not only allows CPU PWM part to become more stable, but also helps hardcore overclocking. Simply click the "GreenPower ON" to activate the power saving mode and reduces the overall system power consumption.
P45 series mainboards support the high-end Intel® Core™ 2 Extreme quad-core processors. In addition to supporting the standard 1333MHz FSB, it can also be overclocked up to 2008MHz. Users can experience a high computing performance with P45 series mainboards. Both the Diamond and Platinum editions provide two PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots. Through multiple high-definition 3D computing, the P45 series mainboards are engineered to provide extraordinary performance and a computing experience without parallel. P45 Diamond comes with two Gigabit network ports, users can do the network redundancy, fault tolerance and increase the bandwidth at any time. Whether you are planning a high-bandwidth 3D online game, downloading or building multi-game servers, P45 series mainboards can easily provide the best transmission efficiency. As part of the audio processing, P45 Diamond comes with a high-end Creative X-Fi Xtreme Audio card which can handle multiple sources. It can even convert MP3 audio into better CD audio quality. The other four models also adopted eight-channel audio function. Users will definitely enjoy an excellent sound while playing realistic games.
