    Micro-Star International (MSI), has always been committed to give its consumers the best gaming performance, that's why MSI has prepared P7N series mainboards to support the 45nm Intel processor and 3-way SLI base on new nForce 7-series chipset.

    Highly Efficient Circu-Pipe and GreenPower Design
    The use of selected high-grade components is the common characteristic of the P7N series mainboards. Although the two mainboards have different market segments, they both come with MSI's exclusive Circu-Pipe design. Circu-pipe can effectively reduce the high temperature from the chipset and MOSFET. This design improves the system stability and product life. Processor power supply of P7N series mainboards are base on MSI's exclusive GreenPower design, it can reach multi-phase power quality and increase the efficiency of power conversion. This not only allows power supply to become more stable, but also reduces the heat produced, especially during huge overclocking.

    Selected high-quality solid capacitors and POSCAP!
    The all capacitors on these two mainboards are high-quality solid capacitors that are made in Japan. These capacitors with low impedance and high ripple current and other characteristics provide better filtering effect. To further highlight P7N Diamond products, the PWM capacitors on this mainboard are based on "Hi-c CAP". Hi-c CAP (Highly-conductive polymerized Capacitor) is similar to Tantalum capacitor which is used on mainboards in the past. But it has better ripple current and dissipation factor characteristic. The impedance values of general capacitor will differ due to the operating frequency change. The most commendable of Hi-c CAP is that in all kinds of operating frequencies, this product can maintain low impedance characteristics. So, Hi-c CAP is suitable for mainboards with high-frequency switching power supply.

    45nm Processor and 3-way SLI ready
    P7N series mainboards are Intel 45nm processor and 3-way SLI ready. The 45nm Quad Core CPU support brings more benefits to multimedia and multitasking by enhancing the performance and reducing the waiting time for any kind of applications. It provides extremely high definition audio/video stream editing and offers higher performance on 3D gaming and professional graphic rendering.

    MSI design quad PCIe VGA slots on Diamond segment for more than the new NVIDIA 3-way SLI technology, also comes with PCIe Gen2 to offer wider bandwidth. This will bring higher 3D gaming resolutions with more detail DirectX 10 effects. What's more, it also enhances the 3D frame rate to a higher level for more smooth gaming experience.

    Already had a good read up on the P7N Diamond, but now the P7N2 is tempting..

    Wow... these boards truly look like something. I like the fact that the P7N2/P7N D both are equipped with PCI-E XFIs! No need to buy an extra sound card. Moreover the board layouts are very well thought out. (Maybe not the circu pipe though... some CPU coolers wont really fit, my HDT S1283 would though!).

    Some of the last high end boards I've seen with two IDEs...Whats up with the new trend of the smaller ferrites? I'm starting to see this on newer boards, moreover those ceramic (high C) caps... I'm thinking we have the stuff, but arent using it to their full potential. I like the SATA port layout though!

    Okay, I install 3-way SLI. Where do I insert the bundled sound card?
