Great board

H R., Newegg
24 April 2007
  • Summary: MSI KN8 Neo4-F; 2.4 Gig AMD athlon Venice processor, 120 gig Seagate HDD; Samsung Writemaster DVD Drive. 512 Corsair Value Select memory..excellent!
  • Pros: I upgraded to this board from an 800 MhZ P2..so i don't have much to compare it too, A friend said "get MSI" I am really glad I did. No problems, concerns, very fast and reliable. If you aren't a serious gamer, say in need of SLI then this board is great.
  • Cons: None that I can think of, Thanks MSI! (and Newegg!)

dead burned up nforce4

Linda L., Newegg
19 April 2007
  • Summary: replace the oem heatsink on the southbridge chip and you'll be okay
  • Pros: Good compatibility
  • Cons: The nForce4 chip has a bad heatsink with a tiny fan. The tiny fan last about 1 year before the ball bearing seize up and then the nForce4 chip gets too hot and dies.

Good bang for the buck

Paul S., Newegg
18 April 2007
  • Pros: Excellent bang for the buck. Sure, it has SATA I instead of SATA II and no SLI, but what do you expect for the price? It's been stable as a rock for me for seven months now.
  • Cons: None.

Good Motherboard.

Shane Z., Newegg
13 April 2007
  • Summary: Running with an Athlon 64 3200+, 2x512mb Corsair ValueSelect PC3200 and a Connect3D X800GTO. Haven't tried any overclocking.
  • Pros: Works fine. Good price, good functionality. Haven't any problems with it. The onboard sound sounds just fine - it was part of the reason I got the motherboard. It had those sound ports and all the other things I was looking to have on it. Bought it over a year ago and it's been working strong since.
  • Cons: If anything, it still has the Parallel and Serial ports on there. I don't think anyone uses them for anything...

pretty decent

Anonymous, Newegg
13 April 2007
  • Summary: I am not using RAID and am running my drives on IDE channels. Proc is 64 3700 San Diego; 1 gig dual channel memory
  • Pros: Stable; easy to set up with decent connectors; sufficient room for cable routing;
  • Cons: The manual states that memory modules must populate green slots first. I followed these instructions and had many problems. When, on a whim, I decided to populate the first two slots, a green and a purple, all problems disappeared. Also seems to have issues with slots 3 and 4. Come on, MSI, get i...

BEWARE!

Connor S., Newegg
9 April 2007
  • Summary: If you don't need all 4GB of ram and you don't have a lot of IDE drives, then this is a good motherboard for the money. Otherwise, if you are insane (like me) and want 4GB of RAM, then this isn't your board.
  • Pros: It's a good motherboard for the price. A few nice features.
  • Cons: BEWARE! On the specs page on this website it says it can support up to 4GB of memory. This is not necessarily true, if you read the fine print on the manufacturer's website it says the architecture might not support all 4. Plus the second IDE channel doesn't work (on mine at least)

GREAT BUDGET BOARD

Anonymous, Newegg
22 March 2007
  • Summary: I was able to overclock my AMD 3800+ to 2.6 stable with Memory at 432mhz in dual channel mode!(good thing I have great cooling) Hint, lower your HT multiplier to 4x and start raising that FSB! and good luck!
  • Pros: First off, for what you get this board is a great deal! Combined with the right video card and good ram you've got yourself a cheap but awesome gaming machine! Fairly overclockable too!
  • Cons: No SATA 3 gb/sec, no SLI, and I paid too much for my board! and I really wish it had a better chipset cooler!

Great Mobo

John S., Newegg
21 March 2007
  • Summary: Athlon 64 3700+ (idles at 32C, after +1 hr video rendering 45C), Evga 7300GT, 2-512MB Corsair Valueselect.
  • Pros: First MSI product and very pleased. Quite literally slid this board under a 80gb HD that was setup for XP Pro with a GA-7N400L-S. Loaded the MSI drivers I was up and running. Even the ATI TV tuner card still worked! Upgraded to capture video and create DVD's. So far it's proving to cut 50-65% of ...

Last of the 939.

J. Hogg "FoilHat", Amazon
14 January 2007
  • Summary: Get one now, before they're gone. I installed a AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+, 2 sticks of 512mb DDR400, nVidia 7200 PCI-e graphics card. It runs perfectly. I had a little trouble installing drivers, but MSI's website is good, they had everything I needed.
