NF3 250GB is finally available??? NICE!!! I guess that means you get the fancy firewall feature, integrated sata, and other cool things the regular NF3 250 doesn't have right?

So how do you like it? I'm waiting for Gigabyte brand to release a GB version myself... well that and I got no money right now, lol

Someome remind me nvr to do a major upgrade w/o doing a fresh winxp install Gotta back up some stuff tonight and reload. Hopefully should have everything back up soon after. Liking the setup ok so far even though Newegg sent me a newcastle 3200+ (L2 512k) instead of the clawhammer (L2 1MB) core they advertised On the brighter side they seem to o'c a lil better so I may keep it, we'll see.

More feedback & o'cing results later...

One word of warning, apparently the retail boards ship w/ a different bios v1.1 than those received by reviewers v1.13+. As a result, several ppl including myself, are getting inaccurate temp readings & experiencing limited o'cing stability. Most of the minor problems w/ this board right now should be fixed in the next bios update. Similiar to what we saw when first nForce2 Ultra mbs surfaced. Theres a beta bios floating around now though. Haven't tried it yet but those who have say they're able to acheive much higher o'c results but the inaccurate temp readings in bios are still there.

Speaking of audio, hows the onboard sound on yer board? I've been spoiled by the soundstorm from my old NF7s and want to know if its worth it to just grab an Audigy 2 or use this Realtek 5.1/7.1 onboard sound.

Default Re: ~ MSI K8N Neo Platinum *Feedback* Thread ~

you will notice a difference if it was anything like the audigy... been a while since I listened to a soundstorm so I dun remember what it sounds like..

now that i have used my onboard for a while its not bad but I do remember that it was not quite as rich as my audigy was...

the newer drivers have helped though so I haven't had a real urge to stick my audigy back in (plus I think its @ my brothers house many miles away )
