The two AMD chipsets generate a moderate amount of heat, but this totally silent thermal solution is better than using a bunch of little noisy fans.

A clever solution for sure, and one that most motherboard manufacturers have embraced as a quiet way of managing the heat from chipsets. This motherboard has almost everything a person needs, except perhaps a Port 80 card which would have been a nice added touch.

MSI includes pretty much everything you’ll need to take advantage of the onboard plaatinum in the box. Solid Capacitors for motherboard longevity.

As always, it’s important to remember that if water cooling is used here, you have to point a fan in the direction of these passive heatsinks or the chipsets will not be adequately cooled. Chipset fans have a bad habit of failing over time, or becoming j92a clogged with dust.

In our experience with the MSI K9A2 Platinum we found it’s passive chipset solution quite effective at pltinum temperatures in check. A pair of heatpipes snake their way through the components on the K9A2 Platinum, connecting the Northbridge heatsink to a large thin fin copper heatsink mounted to the processor power supply MOSFETs.
