Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Overclocking In order to evaluate the overclocking capabilities of the board and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed CPU to the highest frequency possible that also allows for stable operation. This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc. Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 kHz , dB:

Well, this model wasn’t intended to draw attention of those, who are interested in a simple VGA-DVI link for a multi-display configuration without any “multimedia” add-ons. Today it is MSI’s turn. Results are close to upper limit for the codec being used. However, if lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, the default multiplier is used instead. For this reason, it is impossible for us, and any other review, to determine the overclocking potential of any board with etheernet precision.
Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 kHzdB: Conclusions The MSI motherboard being tested will hardly have any trouble with sales. Video 3Digests Video cards: BioShock Infinite ethernnet Metro: MSI developers, in contrast to their colleagues from Biostar, used the layout provided by single chip chipset not to place peripheral ports more freely, but rather to leave more room around the processor socket.
We have only two complaints related to settings — insufficient range of CPU core voltage control although, it is excused by the board’s category and lack of HT-bus multiplier selection which isn’t difficult to add in any case. It is important to realize that overclocking performance varies by motherboard and is, to some extent, an individual characteristic of each specific unit. HDMI port steadily advances towards becoming customary. Therefore, further simplification seems logical this time, given the eyhernet reduced need for cooling.
Clearly, rear panel space wasn’t used in quite the optimal way. Nevertheless, just as we have predicted NVIDIA fans and ordinary users, who have a clear idea of their requirements and who have come to prefer GeForcewill find their needs satisfied.
Once threshold is exceeded rotation frequency is gradually increased to maximum.
The reason why board manufacturers are not responding very actively to GeForce is the delay in its release. The practical goal of our test is to find out if the CPU’s high overclocking potential is hindered by etherne board and to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes.

Overclocking In order to evaluate the overclocking capabilities of the board and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed CPU to the highest frequency possible that also allows for stable operation. Supplemented by Norton Internet Security antivirus suite and firewall. This board has good overclocking capabilities and excellent functionality. A rare board of this category can operate at such high HT frequency without having to raise chipset voltage.

Significantly hot, in the opinion of some testers, who for whatever reason think that while measuring temperature “by touch” one’s finger “must bear the heat”, but who disregard the fact that operating temperatures of modern chips may be much higher than what the pain threshold allows. Applying this test procedure, we are able to effectively use all of the test board’s supported abilities, including increasing processor core voltage, and if necessary, correcting multipliers and adjusting system and peripheral bus frequencies.

CPU overclocking capabilities at standard core voltage turned out to be the acceleration bottleneck. The only disappointment is the lack of DVI-out or a corresponding adapter in the package.
This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc.
