    Default MSI prepares two Intel X48 motherboards

    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.

    Unless you're after a 1600MHz FSB then yes, it's probably more useful as a paper weight.

    Though X48 does OC better.

    X48 only a minor performance increase from X38 but it will support up coming 1600Mhz FSB procesors and DDR3.
