MSI P35 Platinum

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, Just stole one of these off ebay for $1.99.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130097

Anyone have experience with this board? I know its not DDR3, but it had 4 minutes left and no bids so I had to get it.
Plans are to put my Xeon X5460 in it and OC. This board know to OC?

Supposedly it has overclocking settings, grab the latest BIOS you can find and have a crack at it.


Although for you to be able to use the X5460 you need to modify the CPU and board a little as the Xeon is 771 and not directly pin compatible with 775. http://www.overclock.net/t/1384920/good-news-for-the-lga775-now-771-is-available-to-convert-to-775-motherboard/0_100

Yeah, already done on my current board. It's a 650i board and wont let me do anything with the FSB with this proc. So, I'm upgrading. Thanks though!

Man this guy shipped it within an hour! So anxious!

Anyone have personal experience with this? PCWorld said this was the best DDR2 P35 board they have ever tested!

That chipset cooling is OP.

So far no... frown.gif
Starts to post then freezes.

Trying to get someone to help me with the bios. I'll keep you updated. I've gotten some intense OC results on my E8400 - just makes me all the more anxious to get my Xeon working.

Modifying the socket is easy smile.gif
I'd recommend it.

I would have gotten a P5K but I couldn't find one at a good price, unless it was from China. This MSI board is amazing-aside from being ddr2. The chipset cooler is intense, makes me breathe heavy.
