MSI K8N Neo3-FSR – motherboard – ATX – Socket 754 – nForce4 4X Series
During testing they worked quite well, getting warm to the touch. Manual overclocking gives better control, and most often better results. Others printer manufacturers quickly adopted this as the defacto standard for connecting printers to the PC. While running Commander mode though, we did notice it would sometimes lock up the system when under load.
Originally AMD and its ne3o-f were vague about the upgradability of Socket processor, since nel3-f platform was to be replaced quickly with Socket and plans for PCI Express support were sketchy. It’s not commonly used anymore but it’s handy when attaching legacy devices, the main reason why it’s still found on the majority of motherboards.
MSI Computer K8N Neo3-F PCSTATS Review – What’s an AGR video slot?
No matter what we did, the K8N Neo3-F would either lock up at POST or shut itself off completely, requiring me to cut the power to the motherboard and let the power supply run dry before restarting.
The parallel port sends eight bits neo-f data at a time and in parallel, allowing the parallel port to send up to 2MB of data per second. Anyone who has installed front panel USB headers knows how much of a pain it is to always have to refer to the manual. The parallel port remains a standard feature of modern motherboards, despite Intel’s ongoing attempts to eliminate it and other ‘legacy’ ports.
Just for the heck of it, I decided to try the Dynamic Overclocking functions; perhaps my overclocking skills are fading? The default HSF is quiet and does the job nicely, so I can’t see many users swapping it out for something better.
A Good Upgrade Option. Its primary function of connecting to printers, scanners and external backup devices has largely been usurped by the higher bandwidth USB port.
We emailed MSI about this compatibility issue but unfortunately did not get a response what with all the hubbub of Computex going on. What’s an AGR video slot? Playing with voltages did beo3-f allow the K8N Neo3-F to run any higher either.
The board is small, but MSI still does a decent job with motherboard layout. That’s good news for AMD since its other chipset vendors have had a difficult time making waves.
I know I’ve done it about four times in the last two weeks Unfortunately though, the videocard you wish to use must be pre-approved by MSI otherwise it will not function in the motherboard. Other features of the motherboard include a Gigabit NIC and a 5.
The PCI Express architecture has been pegged to have a lifespan of around ten years, so with a nForceX motherboard, Socket Athlon64 users can breath new life into their systems. If you’re already an Athlon64 user looking to upgrade, the power supply you’re currently using should be fine. A Good Upgrade Option.
