As mentioned much earlier, it costs just as much as MSI’s top nForce2 Ultra offering, but it offers more features – which really justify its extra cost. On-board sound is almost a given on any high-end motherboard produced today and the K8T provides the user 6 Channel software audio codec via the Realtek ALC chipset that utilizes theAC97 link controller integrated in VT The most critical component would be the memory as D. This is done to seal the contact and ensure a proper seal enabling the greatest heat dissipation. Peterdiva, Yes, this exactly what I mean. Ergonomically the board is fairly sound and these are solid factors when considering a motherboard purchase so I give them basic approval in this department.

The PE Neo2-FIS2R is an ideal board for all usage conditions, whether it’s for high-performance workstations or for your ultimate gaming rig, we believe the board will faithfully perform with great speed and stability.

Hope you can help me out, ’cause I’m totally lost: It was then that MSI revealed to us that their board had this special tweak which made the processor run faster, but because the clock frequency tweak was done at a different level, there was no way the operating system could detect the change in frequency.

This way, you can enjoy better sound quality as digital connections eliminate cable quality, noise and other such factors and preserves the original signal. Most of us are familiar with the way system monitoring hardware works; onboard systems such as Winbond and onboard or on die heat 2078 and such, report system vitals back to you and then leaves the adjustments, if any, in your hands. After that drivers are being installed but this is strange. Overclockers would probably want to get this board for its overclocking features while beginners getting this board will benefit with its innovative D.


Mi testing revealed a maximum stable overclock of MHz, which is more or less similar to what we obtained from the latest crop of Socket-A motherboards. Not everyone benefits from every ounce of performance since many a-time, promlse differences cannot be quantified nor felt unless benchmarked. While this is not anything more than window dressing, we are seeing it on more boards and can assume that it’s popular with people with window cases and some Moders.

Also re-installing Promise XP drivers won’t help. This is getting really frustrating! The single channel memory controller has to tradeoff the number of memory banks it can access in favor of speed, signal strength and data reliability reasons. The board did perform amicably well in our initial tests and we were surprised that its performance was way beyond the P’s pro,ise.

Introduction MSI is still working their way to the top and has seemed to take a solid hold on the number prlmise position as far as volume sales goes here in the states.

No, create an account now. So far so good! Here’s a summary of what it offers: These “outside promiae BIOS” additions add a lot to the stability of the board when overclocking, something you will likely need when you have a Ppromise with a lot of head room like you do on the Neo. There is no stability problems to speak of 2078 the board was up and going and it was fast in all the test and real world evaluations so I have to say it is a very stable board.


Thus, measuring the processor frequency with D. Yes, my password is: Ok, found the latest drivers only 2 months newer than the ones I havewhich is version. Your name or email address: Could it be it is now a driver issue within XP? Hopefully your manual has the correct info,all the connectors should be colour coded.

The board comes with five PCI slots – more than enough to meet most expansion needs. Peterdiva, you are absolutely right about the type of the board, excuse me for that.
