This review is from: MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
Seems to have nice features. Easy to install, worked on first try.
Worked great for about 2 days. In the middle of playing BF2 it shutdown. When I tried to turn it back on the fans would kick on for a second and stop. LEDs on the MB would stay on though. Tried swapping power supplies- still nothing. RMA'd the motherboard, newegg refunded, and I am trying it again.
Also, I should note that from the beginning the software for controlling/monitoring the motherboard and video card did not work (even when downloaded from MSI's website for the latest versions). Documentation is poorly written. Though I don't really care about that, it might be important for some.
System: MSI P6N-SLI-Plat MB, MSI Turbostream600W PS, EVGA320 GF8800GTS VC, WD 500GB HDD, C2D E6600 (@2.4), 2GB (2x1GB) G.Skill DDR2-800 RAM, OS: XP64 and Ubuntu64
