Asus P5N-E vs MSI P6n Platinum - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Instead of making a new thread I'll ask my question here since it pertains to the same question the op has:

mobo I was going to get:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130081

mobo you guys say is better:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131142

I don't see anything better, in fact I think the plat has more options and such, the only difference is the FSB and price.

Could someone explain to me what is better?

Bretts,

Check out this review of the MSI P6n SLI Platinum. It shows synthetic and real world results for both boards you are looking at.

The boards perform neck and neck with a slight edge going to the Asus board in the overclocking department. ( Max FSB 488 on the Asus vs. 450 on the MSI board. )

I chose the MSI board for its all solid capacitor design, as well as the heatpipe configuration. I'm looking for future bios releases to increase the FSB potential, but I could care less really. I'm not looking for extreme overclocking out of this board. I want stability for the long haul.
