MSI unveiled two new motherboards based on Intel’s P45 chipset at CeBIT
The P45 Neo3 works with DDR2 memory and supports Intel’s 45 nm processors, code named Penryn and Wolfdale. A heatpipe system draws the heat away from the northbridge and the voltage regulation modules, while the southbridge only sports a passive heatsink. There is also a version of the board without any heatpipes, called the "P45 Neo".
The P45 Diamond is an early sample that did not even have a cooling solution attached to it yet. It only supports DDR3 memory which can officially run at up to DDR3-1333. Users that wish to equip their system with multiple hard drives should take a closer look, since the P45 Diamond sports 13 S-ATA connectors on the board plus one eSATA connector. MSI uses special "High-C" capacitors that offer good temperature stability and have an especially high life expectancy.
