With processors and chipsets developing new generations almost every six months, it becomes important to have a motherboard that can handle developing technology. The MSI K9N Platinum brings you a serious feature set, room for a boatload of DDR2 800 memory, and enough PCI and PCI-E slots to plug in the cards of your choice for the best in stable performance. This flexibility is good for business considerations, as well, because it allows for multiple rapid networking options.

This board will cheerfully cope with moderate overclocking, retaining stability at impressive levels for the moderate tweaker looking for a good value. MSI makes some fine boards in support of a variety of platforms and chipsets, and this one offers real solid return on your motherboard investment.

Cons: none yet.

5 out of 5 eggsso far, so good

Pros: Everything works...No driver issues...Great paperwork/instructions...I did my homework to make sure the memory was compatable...Passed the CPU Burn In with no issues...I have not OCd yet...3D Mark score of 1495 points...My build: AMD X2 3800 (65w), 2 x 1gb Corsair DDR2 xms2 5400 (matched pair), ATI x1600 pro PCIe, WD 500 gb sata2 HDD, dual boot XP pro/Vista HP.

Cons: none yet :)

Other Thoughts: I could have went for the SLI, but I have always been an ATI guy...The extra PCIe slot is more of a guess wheather I will be able to use it or not...NewEgg has a closer warehouse to the Midwest (Tenn.), so now I get stuff in 1-2 days!!! New Egg Rocks!!!

5 out of 5 eggsStill with MSI

Pros: This Mobo showed up in great shape, have been using it with 4600+ X2 for 4 1/2 months now and still haven't found any problems. Very oc'able and still stable. 4th MSI board and is definately a great buy.

Cons: Southbridge is very close to the PCIe slot and can cause some issues with cables. My 1900XTX doesn't allow for much room to run the SATA cables between the board and the drives. Since the South Bridge is passively cooled and the Graphics Board sets so close I was worried about cooling issues, but I haven't had any problems yet and this pc runs almost constantly.

Other Thoughts: Very nice board to have and use!

2 out of 5 eggsComplete Shutdown

Pros: Good feature set. Good manual. Lots of information in the MSI user forum.

Cons: The MB shuts down while burning a DVD. Lots of complaints listed in the user forum.

Other Thoughts: The fault is caused by a hardware issue. Check the MSI user forum before purchasing to see if they got it fixed.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good while it lasted

Cons: This is my second of these boards. I RMA'd the first one because of Dual CoreCell problems, this one wouldnt run it either. Also with first board computer would shut down when trying to Burn a disc. Blamed it on the DVD burner. RMA's MB and DVD burner at same time. After reading posts here it apparently was the MB.
Now after few months computer has started rebooting with and without blue screen. When I do get stop computer messages they referred to the RAM. think i have it down to the fact that this MB now will not run two sticks of PC800 at same time. will run either stick of ram, only one at a time. After reading other reviews here I am done with MSI. I have called their TECH support before, they are clueless.

Other Thoughts: No more MSI products for me.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: High quality and geat performance. I was playing around overclocking and the system automatically reset back to the last working state when my settings didn't go.

Cons: The 4 pinpower next to the CPU is a little too close to allow easy use with certain heatsinks

Other Thoughts: Works great at a great price.
