As such, it took us many days to get controlper sets of results, one at normal settings without PAT and D. Privacy policy and Terms of Use. About Us Employment Privacy Policy. 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 comparison. 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.

This is the top of the line model with all the bells and whistles on board – so if contropler want to save a few dollars and don’t need all the little extras you can shoot for the ‘vanilla’ PE Neo2 version.

What the heck is CoreCell? 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 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.

Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news. In the package, you’ll find the following items: Dynamic Overclocking Technology embedded as part of the CoreCell’s main technology. We were skeptical and we went back to testing it again, and again, and again.

If you’re currently working with an iE RDRAM pentium 4 system and long ago made the decision to pass on the DDR-based iPE’s which has been wooing consumers for the last six months, you should still take note. A 2-port USB 2. This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp.

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.

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.
