The board did perform amicably well in our initial tests and we were surprised that its performance was way beyond the P’s counterpart.

So what you say? 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.
Dynamic Overclocking Technology embedded as part of the CoreCell’s main technology. As such, it took us many days to get three sets of results, one at normal settings without PAT and D. Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news. This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp.

Today we’re going to be weighing the pros and cons of MSI’s first entry into the mainstream Springdale iPE desktop mainboard market. Phew, that was a mouthful. Needless to say, we were quite unhappy that this was hidden from us. Before we go into the pros and cons of the motherboard, let’s ethwrnet look at the technical specifications below: A 2-port USB 2.
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. In the package, etheernet find the following items: Hey, it is a new chipset after all!

With a total of eight USB2. 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.
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. 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 Boards which are based on controoler iE were faster mso more powerfull than their iPE counterparts, but the i tops both.
If you’re currently working with an iE RDRAM pentium 4 system ethhernet 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.
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.
What took us off-guard, although we had the board way before P was launched, was MSI’s hidden feature known as D. 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 conttoller PE board following that was also designed based on the same philosophy and features.
What ,si heck is CoreCell? Ships with the following: We were skeptical and we went back to testing it again, and again, and again.
