Still, it’s nice to see that some motherboard makers are at least making sure that there is absolutely no chance that users in the future will need a BIOS update to allow for higher FSB speeds like with MSI’s nForce2 series of motherboards. CoreCell is very aggressive with how it regulates voltages during idle and heavy loads, and apparently this is what has caused such large variance. After all lets face the facts, overclockers are generally considered to represent only a very small portion of the entire mainboard consumer markets. VDIMM is adjustable as high as 3.

When we booted up the board, we were pleasantly surprised and it was quite the ‘first love’ we were talking about. We weren’t very sure of their neoo and definitely not too convinced as the MS was quite a hard product to beat.

We did notice some very wide fluctuation changes though; that is, Vcore would occasionally dip to 1.

May 7th, Update: So, for a product to be as exciting as the MS, it has to come with some pretty serious features for the overclockers. This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp.

In theory, CoreCell is supposed to be able to regulate four things: CoreCell is very aggressive with how it regulates voltages during idle and heavy loads, and apparently this is what has caused such large variance.


This is certainly a concern for users who are sensitive to PC components noise.

We were glad that MSI’s picking up user’s comments seriously and certainly hope that they’ll continue to do so. However, there is a nice CoreCell Windows utility that allows you to adjust fan speeds, but this still doesn’t explain MSI’s other claims onboard components durability, power savings during idle activity, etc.

From what we can gather, CoreCell acts as a system “health” monitoring device.

Of course there is a lot more to a good motherboard than simply how well it overclocks. Converting these folks who are admittedly obsessed nso speed, is not necessarily going to net a company a hudge influx of sales either.

VDIMM is adjustable as high as 3. We are currently working with MSI to see if they can remedy these issues immediately, as this is not acceptable for enthusiasts that like to push their motherboard to the limit. Supported up to 3. As 875o said in our ASUS P4C Deluxe reviewmost desktop users will find this feature to be nice instead of necessary; but there will always be those who desire this capability for something a little more potent than desktop usage.

Moreover, they told us that we would love the board, and it would definitely rekindle our first love for the MS Intel BX. It seems like Analog Devices has been busy getting customers to convert over to their sound controllers recently.


A Neo Concept When MSI first told us of their new Neo series of motherboards for the Canterwood platform, we were a little skeptical about its features and abilities.

Only through such positive feedbacks from users would their products be made more appealing to the mass consumers. Still, this is an issue MSI needs to address in a future BIOS update as we’re assuming that the motherboard doesn’t actually have issues in supplying a clean voltage signal to the CPU if the voltage did actually fluctuate that much we’d probably see nel during our FSB overclocking stress tests.

Not the fastest, but an awesome board still! MSI told us that they neeo addressed some of the issues we’ve raised with regards to their past motherboard designs and have now taken them all into consideration. These problems are two-fold so far: Before we go on we should mention a few BIOS issues we ran into that we have been unable to confirm until recent hours.

This technology is called ” Jack Sensing “, and we’re quite glad it has finally come. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. Vcore fluctuated between 1.
