Break Through FSB1400 MSI™ 848P Neo is the most Spectacular motherboard

Latest Update: Wed, 27 Aug 2003

MSI™ 848P Neo could easily conquer summit of FSB1400, proving its ascendancy. Obtain extra performance by dramatic overclocking.

Just install FSB800 Intel Pentium4 and qualified DDR400+ memory, then enter MSI™ CoreCenter™ and enable click on corresponding memory type on OC Menu™. OC Menu™ will automatic adjust relative optimized parameters for performance platform.

With vendor sorted and guaranteed memory modules, FSB800 P4 CPU could be overclocked up to around 3.4GHz. But 3.4 GHz was ceiling of most FSB800 P4 CPU beside most selective 3.2GHz P4. All results were achieved under ordinary air-cooling.

Red zone stands for unstable or crash.

848P Neo
MSI™ 848P Neo support Intel next generation processor Prescott. 848P Neo was designed to meet latest Intel mainstream FSB800 platform in 2004. 848P Neo equips MAT (Memory Acceleration Technology), delivering up to extra memory performance under Turbo and Ultra Turbo mode. D.O.T. (Dynamic Overclocking Technology) was MSI exclusive technology to boost CPU performance while the system utilization is high.

848P Neo-FIS2R also features OC Menu, the exclusive memory tweaking technology, was fully developed to support DDR400+ memory modules. By comprehensive validation of over 67 DDR400+ memory modules, MSI™ concluded best parameters for DRAM voltage, Vio and other BIOS settings.

Color install is another feature that MSI™ introduce in this motherboard. Pin header of the same function will be identified with the same color, by annotation aside. User can easily install cable from housing without confusion.
