On Intel chipset product line schedule, they usually renew the whole
products series from half to one year.
The 975X chipset exist for a long time, the P965 also launched for almost a
year.
The upcoming Intel new generation processor will speed up to FSB1333MHz
and DDR3 architecture, then the P35 and X38 series chipsets will become the
new generation leader in second half 2007.

The board I got this time is P35 chipset based – MSI P35 Platinum – DDR2
The box design, this time they use different theme on cover, got another
better style

This time MSI have the brake through design on heatpipe design compare
with their old products. They have 4 special parts to high light.
The first part: up left on CPU socket.
The inscription with the pipe name “CIRCU-PIPE”, looks good.

Third part: North bridge pipe
It’s special design that I’ve never seen before. Comes with bigger surface to
spread the heat, seems better then other normal design.

Forth part: South bridge.
The copper and pipe is thick in heatsink.

On this coming P35 product, we see MSI comes with enough function and
better look hestsink with special design,
The special feature and outlook design is almost align to a higher standard
with the three big MB manufactors.
This time MSI coming very fast with well prepared, hope MSI can have more
brake through on overclock limited, then their P35 series will have good
reputation on P35 market soon.
