We were skeptical and we went back to testing it again, and again, and again. The board did perform amicably well in our initial tests and we were surprised that its performance was way beyond the P’s counterpart. Introduction When MSI first showed us their P Neo, we thought it was one of their best engineered product of all time but little did we know that the PE board following that was also designed based on the same philosophy and features. Without going into all the nitty gritty details, we know for sure that PAT can be enabled in the PE, and when activated, the board will promise users performance equal to most boards based on the more expensive P chipset. Today we’re going to be weighing the pros and cons of MSI’s first entry into the mainstream Springdale iPE desktop mainboard market. As such, it took us many days to get three sets of results, one at normal settings without PAT and D.

Often manufacturers only include two native ports while forcing the end user to use the header brackets which take away valuable PCI expansion slots.

Beginners Guides Cases and Access. 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 controllr the operating system could detect the change in frequency. Boards which are based on the iE were faster and more powerfull than their iPE counterparts, but the i tops both.

Introduction When MSI first showed us their P Neo, we thought it was one of their best engineered product of all time but little did we know that the PE board following that was controllee designed based on the same philosophy and features. Needless to say, we were quite unhappy that this was hidden from us.

So what you say?

The board did perform amicably well in our initial tests and we were surprised that its performance was way beyond the P’s counterpart. This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp. The four corners of the board are rounded, and while this is pretty trivial, for someone who reviews motherboards constantly I can’t tell you how many times I’ve scratched myself Today we’re going to be weighing the pros and cons of MSI’s first entry into the mainstream Springdale iPE desktop mainboard market.

Hey, it is a new chipset after all!

Support For PE Neo2-V | Motherboard – The world leader in motherboard design | MSI Global

With a total of eight USB2. Two more headers are included on the PCB which do use a header, or if the case has a front panel connector they can also be connected there.

Ships with the following: Privacy policy mso Terms of Use. A 2-port USB 2. Dynamic Overclocking Technology embedded as part of the CoreCell’s main technology.

Phew, that was a mouthful. If you’re currently working with an iE RDRAM pentium 4 system and long ago made the cntroller to pass on the DDR-based iPE’s which has been wooing consumers for the last six months, you should still take note. In the package, you’ll find the following items: For those who have caught up with reviews of the PE, they would have found out that PAT could be easily enabled by some sort of a cheat method – normally done at the BIOS level.

What took us off-guard, although we had the board way before P was launched, was MSI’s hidden feature known as D. As such, it took us many days to get three sets of results, one at normal settings without PAT and D. This is the top of the line model with all the bells and whistles on board – so if you want to save a few dollars and don’t need all the little extras you can shoot for the ‘vanilla’ PE Neo2 version.

Without going into all the nitty gritty details, we know for sure that PAT can be enabled in the PE, and when activated, the board will promise users performance equal to most boards based on the more expensive P chipset.

Just because the motherboard has a ton of features on board doesn’t mean it can’t ethrrnet expanded either. However, we had to fully investigate the board’s performance and took our time to obtain results satisfactory to us while good enough for a fair apple-to-apple ethsrnet.

Before we go into the pros and cons of the motherboard, let’s just look at the technical specifications below: You’ll no longer have to worry about installing the system then having to open it up because you have the HDD or Power LED in the wrong position.
