MSI is the latest manufacturer to launch some boards based on Intel's X48 chipset. Both boards - the X48 Platinum and X48C Platinum - support 1600 MHz FSB's, Circu-Pipe cooling, and Dual-Channel PWM for higher power efficiency. The thing that separates the boards is the memory support; the X48C Platinum supports both DDR2 and DDR3, while the X48 Platinum only supports DDR3-1600. The X48 Platinum includes two PCIe x16 and two x4 slots, while the X48C only has two PCIe x16 slots.
