Support For G Neo2 Platinum | Motherboard – The world leader in motherboard design | MSI Global
That’s great for those who want to keep their systems running in prime condition. Maximum Motherboard Overclocking and Conclusions. There are many reasons to why Intel moved from a pinned processor package, to pinless. If the roadmaps continue unchanged, socket should be motherboadr defacto Intel desktop standard for the next two years.

The introduction of Socket addressed a variety of issues with Socket ; like excessive pressure from heatsinks which flexed the motherboard, not enough power-related pins to deal with high power consumption of emerging cores, and a few other points slightly more technical in nature.
Furthermore, if you divide the number of pins by mothreboard area of the processor you’ll find that Socket chips are among the most dense ever. According to Intel, Socket Motyerboard 4’s allocate 85 pins for power, for ground.
The best way to mange the heat inside a case 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.

It’s a handy tool for people who avoid instructions manuals. Socket on the other hand has a total of power related contacts, for power, for ground!
So the question arrises of how to feed future generation processors with the power requirements of yesterday’s CPU socket architecture? 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. 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.
This is intended to power single core processors that chew up around W of power. More contacts means more stable power for the processor, so you can bet that this form factor was designed with future generations in mind.
The skeptics will say that Intel wanted to stem the flow of RMA’s from processors with broken pins, but if you do a little digging, the real reasons are somewhat more complicated.
