In the package, you’ll find the following items: Needless to say, we were quite unhappy that this was hidden from us. Boards which are based on the iE were faster and more powerfull than their iPE counterparts, but the i tops both. 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. Phew, that was a mouthful.

The board did perform amicably well in our initial tests and we were surprised that its performance was way beyond the P’s counterpart. Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news. What the heck is CoreCell? 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. Before we go into the pros and cons of the motherboard, let’s just look at the technical specifications below: This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp.
What took us off-guard, although we had the board way before P was launched, was MSI’s hidden feature known as D. Ships with the following: Dynamic Overclocking Technology embedded as part of the CoreCell’s main technology.
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.

Beginners Guides Cases and Access. 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.

Hey, it is a new chipset after all! We were skeptical and we went back to testing it again, and again, and again.
A 2-port USB 2. As such, it took us many days to get three sets of results, one at normal settings without PAT and D.
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. If you’re currently working with an iE RDRAM pentium 4 system and long ago made the decision to pass on the Mdi iPE’s which has been wooing consumers for the last six months, you should still take note.
Often manufacturers only include two mzi ports while forcing the end user to use the header brackets which take away valuable PCI expansion slots. Phew, that was a mouthful. Introduction When MSI first showed us their P Neo, we thought it was one 865;e their best engineered product of all time but 865e did we know that the PE board following that was also designed based on the same philosophy and features.
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 the iE were faster and more powerfull than their iPE counterparts, but the i tops both.
