A++++ Rating for this Motherboad MSI always has a GREAT product!
30 June 2013
Summary: MSI K9N2 SLI Platinum Socket AM2+ AMD (MS-7374-010) Motherboard - Motherboard was used to replace a failed motherboard on an older system. The MSI K9N2 worked GREAT & was a good value $$$ wise to keep from having to upgrade the whole system. Note that a good power supply is needed since there are many options on this motherboard if you plan to use them a good larger power supply is a must! I was lucky & had a 600w power supply which was more than enough for my needs.
Summary: Very nice motherboard if you like to OC, alot of options. I havent been able to notice any differance from my Athlon x64 chip to my Phenom x4, but either way i love the board. Also the pre-installed heatsink that is on the board hasnt got in my way at all, and with the CPU heat sink i installed keeps everything VERY cool. Around 25c.
Summary: I have had this motherboard for at least a year and it is the first sli motherboard i have ever had and it it awesome. I have four gb of ddr2 in it a dual core amd athlon at 2.8ghz on am3 socket, and two 9500gt at 1gb of ddr2 and man the graphics on this are sweet benchmarks are at least 60.00 fps per second fine when im playing lfd 2 and real awesome for streetfighter 4! benchmarks on that game with v sync off are close to a hundred.
Summary: k9n2, the only real good SLI AM2+ motherboard available anymore (since AM3 took over) lots of overclock features, buttons and jumper nodes. I dont OC but I'll probably start. Lots of great reviews back in the day. sold for $289 at that time. That should tell you something. This board from this MSI refurbish supplier doesnt include all stock items with it. So you'll have top buy 70mm SLI bridge. It includes the backplate an IDE and one SATA cable, drivers disc and manual.
Summary: I needed a motherboard that would support my second gtx260 I purchased for SLI and still keep my older Phenom2 940. I didn't want to spend a lot of money because I had purchased my original motherboard only months before and when I came across this motherboard and it came with all of the original packaging items and was tested to work I couldn't pass the opportunity. This mobo is extremely easy to control.
Summary: It had a Very nice look and added a Pretty touch to the case, It boosted my Performance from my old motherboard 10x At least. The minute i plugged the motherboard up i was satisfied, It was greatly packed and Protected in the box. The only thing i didnt like about the board is that the Copper cooling pipe kind of got in the way of my video card, But other than that this is a Fantastic Motherboard.
Summary: I bought the 1st MSI K9N SLI Platinum Diamond. Seeing that I use to build computers. That mobo sat in the box over 1 yr. B4 i even got to it. To only have a DOA., MSI C.svc was a waste of email tag. Newegg wouldn't rma it. So Now it just looks pretty sitting next to the trash can. So, for anyone when you get anything mobo or any other parts & test it. Or, you'll be like me & have a costly pile of trash. Not worth a crap. MSI use to be great about everything.
