One point not to be missed in all of this is that the socket retention mechanism is a precision piece of engineering, and proper installation and care is important. Privacy policy and Terms of Use. More contacts means more stable power for the processor, so you can bet that this form factor was designed with future generations in mind. This is intended to power single core processors that chew up around W of power. According to Intel, Socket Pentium 4’s allocate 85 pins for power, for ground.

The introduction platknum Socket addressed a variety of issues with Socket ; like excessive pressure from heatsinks which flexed the motherboard, not enough motherboarv pins to deal with high power consumption of emerging cores, and a few other points slightly more technical in nature. A pinned solution would have posed another problem; packing all those pins into the same small space would have meant even more fragile pins than used with the socket design.

Intel P Shootout : MSI P Neo2 Platinum (Page 1/3) :: Articles :: ®

One point not to be missed in all of this is that the socket retention mechanism is a precision piece of engineering, and proper installation and care is important. So the question arrises of motuerboard to feed future generation processors with platinu power requirements mohherboard yesterday’s CPU socket architecture? Socket on the other hand has a total of power related contacts, for power, for ground!

On the power front, next generation processors are drawing much more electricity and die shrinks aren’t helping the situation as they once could. Enthusiasts in the crowd should be pleased to know the P Neo2 motherboard comes with a total of four fan headers. Like every other high performance motherboard, the P Neo2 Platinum generates a ton of heat itself. To help alleviate potentially problems, MSI have included a small plastic installation tool to make inserting the socket processor a little easier, and foolproof.

Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Furthermore, if you divide the number of pins by the area of the processor you’ll find that Socket chips are among the most dense ever. That’s great for those who mothherboard to keep their systems running in prime condition.

More contacts means more stable power for the processor, so you can bet that this form factor was designed with future generations in mind. If the roadmaps continue unchanged, socket should be the defacto Intel desktop standard for the next two years. About Us Employment Privacy Policy.

It’s a handy tool for people who avoid instructions manuals. Maximum Motherboard Overclocking and Conclusions.

As things get faster, components run hotter, that’s a simple rule in the world of computers. The skeptics will say that Intel wanted to stem the flow of Platiinum from processors with broken pins, but if you do a little digging, the real reasons are somewhat more complicated.

If Intel had decided to introduce a higher pin density, it would have had to use a substantially larger substrate, which would have taken up more real estate on an already space deprived motherboard. There are many reasons to mootherboard Intel moved from a pinned processor package, to pinless. The best way to mange the heat inside a platinuum is with good airflow; the Southbridge for instance is one of the hottest points on the motherboard since the heatsink is so small, so continual airflow is advisable.
