Quite nice, as some other micro ATX boards I have seen only offer one block, which can be a problem if you have more than two case USB ports. The motherboard itself seems very solid as well.

As with any hardware, improvements could be made, but a solid base for most is essential, that is where this board delivers. Now on to the negative point of this board.
The motherboard itself seems very solid as well. Mac mini running W23k Server – 1.
The time now is Another possible negative point could be the limitation of just one PCI. Upon screwing down the heatsink there was a more comforting re-assurance than with some others boards.

Although this is an issue with the PCI card itself, how this motherboard handles troublesome hardware is very impressive. 4pm900 driver discs include drivers for XP and Vista. The motherboard seems very sturdy as well. Further specifications are available off the msi website. I noticed quite a few views so hopefully it may have helped someone after a budget board.
With the graphics being onboard and no onboard memory you’re purely dependant on part of your ram being allocated for video memory. Results 1 to 4 of 4 Thread: Temporarily I am using this board in a DVR system, until it replaces the motherboard in a testing system after that.
It would have meant a micro system could be run with two HDD’s and an optical drive. To start off, il just outlay some brief specifications with opinions provided.

However, upon trying this with some memory I have kicking around it obviously didn’t work. You may have to register before you can post: In the past with all msl motherboards I have used, the DVR PCI card driver installation has caused havoc with motherboard drivers, however with this board, I didn’t suffer the same instability while p4j900 drivers as I have in the past.
For example, upon installing the same CPU that has been used in a previous gigabyte board, i noticed the CPU clasp on the motherboard actually clipped the CPU down, instead of having an eerie feeling of a bent clasp like on other boards.

Results 1 to 4 of 4. Conclusion If you’re looking for a micro ATX board that offers flexibility between all OS’s win2k upwardsolder hardware and newer hardware then this MSI board is a solid and reliable choice.

Flexibility goes even further still. This isn’t really an issue, except if you wanted to play any games from this century and afterthen a PCI GPU would be required. It makes a change from either having to purchase an archaic board so you have XP support or a modern board like this one, that only supports Vista.
It might seem like an obvious point, but finding a reliable board that I could use indefinitely on a p4 HT and then a dual core in the future was challenging.
I would have liked an additional SATA port and wouldn’t have minded the extra couple of pounds expense. The VIA chipset is also supported on Linux. Another point, which is implied in the picture is quite low lying capacitors around the socket allowing breathing room between the motherboard capacitors and the CPU heatsink. Picard is da bomb!
