Note that the IDE controller installed on this motherboard modern chipsets from Intel lack the integrated solution in their Southbridge puts up praiseworthy performance. We have only one question to MSI: We were pleasantly surprised by the power supply system. The CPU voltage regulator is the most important component for overclocking, especially for long-term usage.

These test results dictate a conclusion that the “Memory Lover” works well with both memory types — at least mis worse than other combined motherboards. You may learn more details about motherboard specs and read the list of processors and memory modules tested for compatibility on the official product page links at the end of the article.
So it’s a good choice for thrifty users, who what ;45-8d upgrade their computers and keep some of their old components. Madshrimps has a look at the performances of this motherboard in both DDR2 and DDR3 test setting comparing it to three other P45 motherboards; a 4-way P45 motherboard comparison in other words.
We cannot say that motherboards with six DIMM slots are rare — this type of solutions often surfaces in transition periods, when the current memory standard is changing. You can read about MSI utilities in our full reviews of motherboards from this company. A heat pipe from Southbridge to the NB heatsink looks more like a serious solution, but it won’t make the system more efficient.
This one is a real attraction of the board: As it goes with top products, this motherboard contains buttons to power on and reset the system, and a clear CMOS button on the rear panel, so you don’t have to open a PC enclosure after a failed overclocking attempt.
The bundle does not include extraordinary components either, except for a bracket with eSATA. This motherboard supports only processors with VRD As a result, MSI designed only five channels in the PWM controller, while its competitors have to use circuits with a double-figure number of channels.
[M] MSI PD Memory Lover Motherboard Review
We were pleasantly surprised by the power supply system. The on-board cooling system is quite simple: We were disappointed by the switch, responsible for overclocking, which should theoretically set the base FSB frequency.
Just an average bundle. Yep, it has eight DIMM slots besides, they take up much room together with the memory voltage regulatorbut no other bells and whistles: Graphic Design by Dennis Kestelle, Programming by Maarten Menten, Overall Site design by John Meys All information and graphics contained in Mmsi are sole property of the Madshrimps crew and may not be reproduced or copied in any manner without written permission from us.
MSI P45-8D Memory Lover Motherboard Review
For one, along with polymeric capacitors it uses Hi-c CAP capacitors to minimize heating and guarantee maximum service life in critical conditions. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. The box art is pretty cool, especially considering the ‘lover’. BioShock Infinite and Metro: This should be seen, I think, as an attempt to show the people what MSI is capable of, to show people that MSI is not only about populating the market, but also about thinking out-of-the-box.

Design This motherboard msk a simple PCB layout. So the only difference from a common board with four sockets for one memory type is the more p45-8f layout and channel switch circuits. You can read about its features in the corresponding review.
The board has another two peculiarities — one’s good, the mso is not quite. This model is not a top product, but the most expensive motherboards from MSI use the same technology now.
However, P45 is not a very hot chipset. Video 3Digests Video cards:
