Not the fastest, but an awesome board still! The entire package now comes in a huge sparsely designed box that contains the following items: A lot of manufacturers like to bundle just the bare necessities with their products so it’s always a bit of a treat to test out a top of the line model that comes with literally everything in the box.

Analog Devices had expressed their drive to rival and even overtake their competitors read: The P Neo also includes a small mountain of cables, connectors, and brackets to take advantage of all the “goodies” which are onboard.

A lot of manufacturers like to bundle just the bare necessities with their products so it’s always a bit of a treat to test out a top of the line model that comes with literally everything in the box. The question lurking in our mind was how much more powerful would its overclocking features be.

Rounding out the integrated features we find five bit PCI slots for future upgradability as well as a 8x AGP socket.

This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp. MSI isn’t particularly known for their overclocking motherboards, but we can say that has all changed with the P Neo-FIS2R, easily the most overclocker-friendly Pentium 4 motherboard in terms of BIOS features we’ve ever come across.

MSI told us that they have addressed some of the issues we’ve 875l with regards to their past motherboard designs and have now taken them all into consideration. However, performance tweakers will rejoice over this high voltage, and will especially like the nice added bonus of being able to more finely tune VDIMM in 0.

Today, almost every motherboard would feature tweaks to the core voltage and front side bus. For the enthusiasts out there reading this, just try and count how many motherboards you’ve recommended in the past year to people – I’ll bet it’s quite a few!

We are currently working with MSI to see if they can remedy these issues immediately, as this is not acceptable for enthusiasts that like to push jeo motherboard to the limit.

Still, this is an issue MSI needs to address in a future BIOS update as we’re assuming that the motherboard doesn’t actually have issues in supplying a clean voltage signal to the CPU if the voltage did actually fluctuate that much we’d probably see instability during our FSB overclocking stress tests. Ships with the following: Of course there is a lot more to a good motherboard than simply how well it overclocks.

However, there is a nice CoreCell Windows utility that allows you to adjust fan speeds, but this still doesn’t explain MSI’s other claims onboard components durability, power savings during idle activity, etc. These problems are two-fold so far: After all lets face the facts, overclockers are generally considered to represent only a very small portion of the entire mainboard consumer markets.

From what we can gather, CoreCell acts as a system “health” monitoring device. These problems are two-fold so far:.
