Deficiencies in either the chipset or memory throughput can be quickly diagnosed with such a benchmark. What I’ve shown above are the most aggressive timings that I used to benchmark the motherboard. With a wealth of extras, I was only too keen to have a good look at this motherboard. The proximity of the AGP slot to the DDR slots means that you cannot access system memory easily once a card has been inserted, a common trait amongst manufacturers. Indeed, my reviewing colleague and friend, Ryszard, liked it so much that he awarded it an Editor’s choice award. It natively supports full surround sound 5.

What catches my eye is the fact that this is the first P4 motherboard with full Bluetooth wireless connectivity support. A software CD is provided.

What was the best tech product of ? Interested in this stuff? The whole bundle from maz box cover to the contents feels classy, from the red PCB colour to the Bluetooth extras. I could complete all of my benchmarks, my only concern was temperatures as I had quiet air-cooling installed.

The reason that I mention it is that it is almost impossible to mso to, much like the IT7. MSI appear to be one of the very few motherboard manufacturers that believe active cooling is required on the E NB.
I still feel that this benchmark is relevant today as many games still run under DX7 or earlier versions of DirectX.
I wager that your attention has been drawn to the strange PCB and what looks like a marker to the right of the previous page’s picture?. The main configuration screen is as follows: The revised D-bracket, rather unsurprisingly called D-Bracket2 kills two birds with one stone. System Setup and benchmarking notes. What do you want out of a motherboard?.
Those of you who practice in overclocking will know that attaching a variable resistor to pin 7 will allow for extra voltage. Next we’ll turn our attention to MP3 encoding. There are a whole host of motherboard manufacturers who are vying for your hard-earned cash.
We’ll be looking into this a little later. Bluetooth connectively, especially as MSI have bundled in a transceiving key for peer-to-peer connectivity, is truly useful.

This is further reduced to two when you factor out the Northbridge cooler that occupies one header. The difference isn’t great, but could affect results if they are llan close. This is also powered from the busy Southbridge.
With a wealth of extras, I was only too keen to have a good look at this motherboard.
You simply install the software that is provided on a relevant disc and plug in the key and away you go. Manufacturers are slowly realising that features count too. Compatibility was good too.
All three lab were configured for maximum performance. LAME encoding is an activity that is almost entirely CPU-bound, competing memory subsystems usually show little variance in results, this is the case here.
There is adequate provision around the socket to mount a third-party cooler, especially one the size of an Alpha or Swiftech. This wouldn’t be an objective review without some criticism.

Let’s see what I thought of it on the following pages. The integrated peripheral screen is rather basic.
I gathered all my various PCI cards and inserted them in varying slots without issue. How does it fare in PCMark ? Indeed, my reviewing colleague and friend, Ryszard, liked it so much that he awarded it an Editor’s choice award.
Manufacturers are slowly realising that features count too. DDR voltage ranges from the standard 2.
