MSI PE Neo2-FIS2R (Intel PE) (Page 1/10) :: Articles :: ®
Dynamic Overclocking Technology embedded nso2 part of the CoreCell’s main technology. A 2-port USB 2. This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp.
Hey, it is a new chipset after all! 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 ne2o was done at a different level, there was no way the operating system could detect the change in frequency.
In the package, you’ll find the following items: As such, it took us many days to get three sets of results, one at normal settings without PAT and D. If you’re nneo2 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.
Boards which are based on the iE were faster and more powerfull than their iPE counterparts, but the i tops both. 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.
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 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.

Often manufacturers only include two native ports while forcing the end user to use the header brackets which take away valuable PCI expansion slots. Just because the motherboard has a ton of features on board doesn’t mean it can’t be expanded either.
MSI 865PE Neo2-FIS2R – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – i865PE Series
For those who have caught up msl 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. 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 just look at the technical specifications below: The board did perform amicably well in our initial tests and we were surprised that its performance was way beyond the P’s counterpart.
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. We were skeptical and we went back to testing it again, and again, and again. Beginners Guides Cases and Access.
Today we’re going to be weighing the pros and cons of MSI’s first entry into the mainstream Springdale iPE desktop mainboard market.
