Built on dual channel DDR2 667 memory architecture with one PCI Express 16x graphics interface and two PCI-E 1x slot. The ICH7R chip supports not only PCI Express x1 expansion slots and 9.1 High Definition Audio with Dolby quality, but also Intel® Matrix Storage RAID Technology. Intel® Matrix Storage Technology combines the advantages of conventional RAID 0 and RAID 1, and the newer RAID 5 for best cost / performance rate. It provides new level of protection, performance and future upgradeability. RAID 0 configurations can improve performance, whilst RAID 1 can improve protection of data, or you can use 3 similar models of HHD on RAID 5 for additional HDD capabilities and protection.

The technical expertise of MSI engineering team created the 955X Platinum to support dual channel DDR2 733 and higher with unlocked Intel processor or asynchronous FSB frequency. The VIA RAID controller provides IDE devices which are better and flexible plus two more extra IDE interfaces. Users can configure it as RAID 0, 1, 0+1 or JBOD. Also we build 4 SATA2 RAID to build high quality RAID. In addition, the E-SATA bracket allows user to add more SATA drives on this wonderful motherboard.
