Still, it’s nice to see that some motherboard makers are at least making sure that there is absolutely no chance that users in the future will need a BIOS update to allow for higher FSB speeds like with MSI’s nForce2 series of motherboards. These type of DRAM timing options are common among motherboards based on Intel chipsets, and is really all that is necessary to leverage good memory performance besides frequency control of course. The question lurking in our mind was how much more powerful would its overclocking features be. The question as we see it is whether or not MSI can provide the gear necessary to convert die hard overclockers who usually have a lot of brand loyalty ie. 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.

So in total, you’ll be able to connect four SATA and six IDE drives to this motherboard, which equals a grand total of ten possible drives that can be connected to this motherboard. Ships with the following: 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. The P Neo also includes a small mountain of cables, connectors, and brackets to take advantage of all the “goodies” which are onboard.

Nel through such positive feedbacks from users would their products be made more appealing to the mass consumers. This is an old archive page nwo HWZ prior to revamp. What is more significant is that overclockers and die hard enthusiasts typically set the trends that heo consumers follow.


So, for a product to be as exciting as the MS, it has to come with some pretty serious features for the overclockers. While there isn’t the traditional 0. The entire package now comes in a huge sparsely designed box that contains the following items: These memory frequency options obviously aren’t all that spectacular for users that demand wide frequency flexibility, but what’s good to know is that overclockers won’t be limited by too high a memory speed with a very high FSB, as there are options as low as DDR when a FSB value of MHz or more is saved to CMOS.

This is nfo a concern for users who are sensitive to PC components noise. Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news. For more information regarding CSA and its benefits, take a look at page 5 of our Intel P chipset review. 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 nel comes with literally everything in the box.

Imagine, at that time, MSI’s MS was one of the very few Slot-1 based motherboard to allow some pretty serious overclocking.

Of course, we’re assuming 6 USB ports are enough, some may want to take advantage of the extra two ports that can be activated via the 9-pin USB 2. The question as we see it is whether or not MSI can provide the gear necessary to convert die hard overclockers who usually have a lot of brand loyalty ie.

Though we should mention that there is a nice Windows utility that allows fan speed adjustments in multiple intervals.

MSI P Neo-FIS2R (Intel P) (Page 1/13) :: Articles :: ®

MSI told us that they have 875pp some of the issues we’ve raised with regards to their past motherboard designs and have now taken them all into consideration.


In theory, CoreCell is supposed to be able to regulate four things: 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.

It seems like Analog Devices has been busy getting customers to convert over to their sound controllers recently. After all lets face the facts, overclockers are generally considered to represent only a very small portion of the entire mainboard consumer markets.

MSI P Neo-FIS2R (P): Our favorite thus far

Before we go 875l we should mention a few BIOS issues we ran into that we have been unable to confirm until recent hours. Unfortunately MSI did not include some sort of CPU fan speed control option in this section like other motherboard makers have been doing for quite some time.

So, there’s really not much of excitement there anymore. If you’d like to read more about this controller, visit this web page. Supported up to 3.

MSI 875P Neo-FIS2R (875P): Our favorite thus far

Today, almost every motherboard would feature tweaks to the core voltage and front side bus. This technology is called ” Jack Sensing “, and we’re quite glad it has finally come.

These problems are two-fold so far:. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. The extra USB 2. This type of VAGP ceiling is way beyond the recommend default 1. From what we can gather, CoreCell acts as a system “health” monitoring device.
