CoreCell is very aggressive with how it regulates voltages during idle and heavy loads, and apparently this is what has caused such large variance. We were glad that MSI’s picking up user’s comments seriously and certainly hope that they’ll continue to do so. What is more significant is that overclockers and die hard enthusiasts typically set the trends that mainstream consumers follow. This is certainly a concern for users who are sensitive to PC components noise. Of course, we’re assuming 6 USB ports are enough, some may want to take advantage of the extra two ports that can be activated via the 9-pin USB 2.

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 instability during our FSB overclocking stress tests.
Today, almost every motherboard would feature tweaks to the core voltage and front side bus. Realtek has an identical eno ready for mass production dubbed the ALCfound in Gigabyte’s P series of motherboards. Our favorite thus far by Evan Lieb on May 6, Rounding out the integrated features we find five bit PCI slots for future upgradability as well as a 8x AGP socket.
MSI P Neo-FIS2R: BIOS and Overclocking – MSI P Neo-FIS2R (P): Our favorite thus far
MSI isn’t particularly known for their overclocking motherboards, but we can say that has all changed with the P Neo-FIS2R, easily the most overclocker-friendly Pentium 4 motherboard in terms of BIOS features we’ve ever come across. 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.
We weren’t very sure of their claims and definitely not too convinced as the MS was quite a hard product to beat. CoreCell is very aggressive with how it regulates voltages during idle and heavy loads, and apparently this is what has caused such large variance. Imagine, at that time, MSI’s MS was one of the very few Slot-1 based motherboard to allow some pretty serious overclocking.

So, there’s really not much of excitement there anymore. When we booted up the board, we were pleasantly surprised and it was quite the ‘first love’ we were talking about. The question as we see it is whether or not MSI can provide the gear necessary to convert die hard overclockers who usually have a lot of brand loyalty ie.
In other words, you’ve got 3: High voltage and temperature variation. We will report our findings in our P roundup later this month.
From what we can gather, CoreCell acts as a system “health” monitoring device. This is certainly a concern for users who are sensitive to PC components noise. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. These problems are two-fold so far:. The question lurking in our mind was how much more powerful would its overclocking features be.
Our favorite thus far by Evan Lieb on May 6, This type of VAGP ceiling is way beyond the recommend default 1. Please visit Netaork for the latest reviews and news.
MSI 875P Neo-FIS2R – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – i875P Series
Of course there is a lot more to a good motherboard than simply how well it overclocks. Not the fastest, but an awesome board still!
Converting these folks who are admittedly obsessed with speed, is not necessarily going to net a company a hudge influx of sales either.
Analog Devices AD Controller. Supported up to 3. Though we should mention that there is a nice Windows utility that allows fan speed adjustments in multiple intervals.
In theory, CoreCell is supposed to be able to regulate four things: Heck, we’re even geeky enough to get a little excited about that ” new motherboard smell ” that wafts out of the box once the anti-static bag is cracked open. Log in Don’t have an account? MSI told us that they have addressed some of the issues we’ve raised with regards to their past motherboard designs and have now taken them all into consideration. Unfortunately MSI did not include some sort of CPU fan speed control option in this section like other motherboard makers have been doing for quite some time.
