Cool ~ MSI K8N Neo Platinum *Feedback* Thread ~

Just ordered one for $149.99 including free 2-day shipping. I also just got off the phone with them a few mins ago to confirm they have a shipment coming in later today (west coast) and the orders will be shipped shortly after. w007111!!

Also these guys have a very good resellerrating so I wouldn't be worried about ordering from them

Can't wait!!!

Nice to see that the nForce3 250 is finally shipping. About time huh?
Even though i've been happy with my VIA board for the last 8 months or so i gotta try one of these.

Locked pci/agp bus, yes please.

Hehe tell me about it! You prolly won't see a lot of perf diff from yer current setup but the added features & locked pci/agp bus make it all worth it. Sometimes I love being a geek

Good retailer. Now that Newegg has a warrehouse in NJ and therefore has to charge sales tax, I've gone over to ZZF for most of my purchases.

Give us your thoughts when you get it up and running!

Just received press release from MSI:

Quote:
Hi,
Thanks for your inquiry about our K8N Neo Platinum motherboard. We would like to inform you that this award-wining motherboard is now ready for purchase. If you regularly visit MSI web site, you may know that the K8N Neo Platinum motherboard already won the honor of several Editor's Choice Awards from major review sites – one of the editors mentioned in his review article -- “ the performance of the MSI K8N Neo-FIS2R Platinum motherboard was excellent. It's easily the fastest Athlon64 board we've tested to date.”

I'm going to cancel my order from ZZF, seems they held my order trying to validate my address with my cc company that hasn't changed in over a yr. Also don't like the fact that they immediately charged my acct before anything was shipped.

Newayz, just ordered the mb from NewEgg, its already being packaged, should have it in a couple days. I'm sure ZZF is a good company but as long as Newegg continues to get my purchases out the door the fastest, thats who I'm sticking with.

Thats the board I wanted, but couldnt wait for it. I got a Chaintech VNF 250 last week. Its based off the NF3 250 chipset, just doesnt have the frills. It was just $77 shipped from ZZF too. Hard to beat that price.

Already taken my 3400+ to 235FSB, for 2.6gig, up from 2.2gig. Going to try to lower the multiplier and crank up the FSB higher later on.

I hate you! I like the ram placement, they also left plenty of room around the socket 754 which is always good for larger coolers. MSI really put some thought into the layout, something I wish more oems did.

The shipping BIOS doesnt allow you to lower the multiplier, but the next one will. There is a beta BIOS out now that lets you, but I have issues with it. It hangs on the BIOS screen, just after it detects the CPU/RAM. Others have it and it works fine.

Im using HyperX PC4000@1:1. I had my ram up to 260FSB with my 3.0c chip, I hope to lower the multiplier to maybe 10x and hit 250FSB with this chip.

Here is 230FSB, I didnt take a shot of 235FSB, just forgot. Waiting on the new BIOS before I play with it some more. I also have some XMS PC3500 Plat that Im going to try. Maybe the beta BIOS will work with it, I dont know.



A real steal for $77 shipped 2-day.

Very impressive d00d! Glad to hear that mb clocks well it sounds like a steal. Let us know how it goes with the new bios. O and that ram at too shabby either. Post some results w/ the PC3500 if you get a chance.

I changed my mind and went with the Epox board instead. Ordered it just now, should get in on Friday.
