In Dead Space, as part of the crew of the USG Kellion you are headed on a repair mission to repair a ship in distress. Things go from bad to worse as starting with the crash landing and seemingly silent and "dead" ship, the USG Ishimuru. Offering a non-traditional over the shoulder viewing angle, the game gets right into the action as soon as the ventilation systems are activated. From there things get worse with the appearance of the Necromorphs. Survival now becomes a primary concern for the primary character Isaac Clarke. Survive and you may find the loved one that was aboard the Ishimuru. In one frame a Necromorph is visible right before an attack from behind.

All three X58 boards score about the same in Dead Space, except at 1920x1200. The Platinum does take a slight lead but nothing major considering the game is already running at very high FPS. Bumping the frequency to 3.6GHz lets MSI's Platinum take the lead at all four resolutions.
