P45TS-R Software And Accessories

11-Way P45 Motherboard Shootout
By

The P45TS-R features the same OC Tuner software featured in our P45R2000-WiFi description, and it works just as well, allowing us to make minor changes in voltage and speed without causing a system hang or crash. It also includes McAfee Virus Scan, just like its more elaborate sibling.

Accessories
Documentation & Software Motherboard Manual
Motherboard Driver DVD
Hardware 2x SATA Data Cable
1x 4-pin to SATA power adapter
1x 80-conductor Ultra ATA cable
1x Floppy Cable
1x I/O Panel Shield

The biggest disappointment about the P45TS-R is its cable kit, since there aren’t enough cables to build a modern system. Yes, the company includes Ultra ATA and floppy cables, but those aren’t modern, and the problem is that the two Serial ATA cables are only enough to connect a hard drive and the eSATA pass-through connector. You’ll need to add another SATA cable yourself if your optical drive is modern, or else leave the eSATA connector disabled.

    the old E6xx CPU is not good enough to explore the FSB of the new P45 chipset. i seen better review then this in term of hardware. there should be at least a dual core 45nm processor and a 45nm quad processor.

    sigh....tom's been lazy with hardware update!

    I assume it is a mistake that says the P45 platinum from MSI has an X48 chipset?

    so waht about a decent conclusion something like, are these boarfds worth the extra cash over a P35 chipset variant, everything tells me they offer little incentive over the P35, thoughts anyone?

    Hello?
    Uhm .. 45nm!?

    I agree, test with a better (new) CPU(s) 45nm Dual/Quad.
    That would be really interesting. This probably means alot to someone that owns the E6xx series CPU which i doubt someone buy if they buy a P45 board.
