Still sporting many of the sam e features this motherboard is a good 3D gaming and overclocking performer. Most importantly, the board really shines in desktop productivity and business applications as reflected by its huge lead in both SYSmark and PCMark05 benchmarks, which is exactly the intended market for this board. With a really hot chipset and only one fan header onboard, we’d advise you to invest in a properly ventilated case or a power supply with extra Molex connectors and while you’re at it, change the stock Northbridge cooler as well. With the full speed of dual PCI-E x16 bandwidth, the graphic cards while CrossFire uses the PCI Express bus allowing a bit a more flexibility and improving the performance doubled for gamer. This would have severely affected the board’s final rating had MSI not fixed our problems as efficiently as they did. Please log in or register to comment. MSI are enjoying a purple patch in this moment in history and have two boards in the top ten.

Users can have another choice to have different platform with ATI dual graphics card solution. The FX was not the popular choice with overclockers however, who as with the previous platform were much more tempted by the proposition of pushing cheaper parts and getting a genuinely free performance boost.

Support for the latest dual core CPUs and dual channel memory even faster than Mhz provides a perfect platform for performance junkies!! Once upon a time read: It’s the new generation product that revolutionizes overclocking performance and reliability.
The new K8N series is an absolute platform that can manage even the most cutting edge applications. Although physically the AM2 Socket used exactly pins in the plattorm ZFI zero insertion force socket design that is used today, the new platform did not physically support previous generation Socket CPUs due to an intentionally incompatible pin layout.
Still sporting many of the sam e features this motherboard is a good 3D gaming and overclocking performer. There are a few platform consistencies.
The K9NU Neo is a budget board and as budget boards go, it is not designed to handle the rigors of tweaking. From the tests and benchmarks that we’ve run, we can say MSI engineers have been very successful in the board’s implementation. We see several previous OEM focused companies vying for the hearts and minds of DIY builders, gamers and overclockers.

MSI are enjoying a purple patch in this moment in an2 and have two boards in the top ten. This newsletter may contain advertising, deals, or affiliate links. While DFI had stolen the show on the previous Socket platform, in the Socket AM2 era they have but one board in the top ten, a massive drop off from having five on the previous generation. The new socket however did debut a different heatsink retention mechanism with a cage-like design that was attached to the motherboard using four screws, not two.
This week we turn our attention to msu AMD AM2 platform, a platform that most notably featured an updated integrated memory controller that supported DDR2 standard memory. Most importantly, the board really shines in desktop productivity and business applications as reflected by its huge lead in both SYSmark and PCMark05 benchmarks, which is exactly the intended market for this board.
