Fresh from reviewing the high-end Gigabyte GAP-DQ6 a while back, we were curious as to how the P chipset would perform in a mainstream configuration like the P Neo. Read on to find out what they are, but before we start though, we’ll let you familiarize yourself with the board’s technical specifications. You may also be interested in After playing around with the MSI P Neo, our results were not all that unexpected, but we did make some interesting observations. FireWire, not surprisingly, is a feature that is not included on the board.

MSI P Neo-F – motherboard – ATX – LGA Socket – P Overview – CNET
Supports four unbuffered DIMM of 1. The rest of the laan features are pretty decent as well. You mxi also be interested in As a result, we have a board with a clean layout, but not exactly free from problems.
Because the ICH8 has no advanced performance features and coupled with the fact that Intel chose to remove IDE support altogether, it is not surprising to find that MSI favors the JMicron controller as primary storage.
MSI P965 Neo-F – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – P965
This is an old archive page of Neoo prior to revamp. Of course, we decided to go ahead and overclock it anyway, this being a review and all. Will you blow your budget on a feature-rich motherboard and settle for a less powerful processor?
In order to lower costs further, the P Neo uses a dedicated single-chip Gigabit network controller instead of relying on the onboard Gigabit MAC.
After playing around with the MSI P Neo, our results were not all that unexpected, but we did make some interesting observations. Or do away with extra features for a higher-end CPU.
We love how much room the DIMM and expansion slots enjoy, but our chief complaint is with the middle of the board. Too bad the board is intentionally limited by its BIOS.
Fresh from reviewing the high-end Gigabyte GAP-DQ6 a while back, we were curious as to how the P chipset would perform in a mainstream configuration pp965 the P Neo.
The good thing about the board is that MSI tries to make up for its core deficiencies. MSI only carries a modest two-board lineup that clearly distinguishes the line between feature-rich performance P Platinum and mainstream P Neo.
With AMD, it was an expensive upgrade path and core component overhaul to adopt Socket AM2, but Intel isn’t all that better off either.
Introduction Every time the PC industry forces a new platform into the market, it’s the users that always get left behind. FireWire, not surprisingly, is a feature that is not included on the board. Read on to find out what they are, but before we start though, we’ll let you familiarize yourself with the board’s technical specifications.
Both main and auxiliary ATX power connectors are located towards the back in the middle, close to the MCH heatsink, which in itself is a problem.
Barring the huge population of enthusiasts out there who are able to just continuously upgrade to the latest and baddest hardware with impunity, we of finite monetary resources have to strike a balance of features and performance. After installation, we find that the combination makes it a little hard to access the CPU cooler retention clips in that corner. Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news.
Singapore Malaysia Philippines Indonesia. Simple memory timing, voltage and core frequencies are just about all you can tweak and the absence of voltage controls for both CPU and chipset will tell you just where the board stands.
