Great value, very small ATX board.,
This review is from: MSI K9N Neo-F V3 nForce 560 Sockel AM2 (Accessory)
Excellent basic board. Has all the features you really need. Board has a small depth, so can fit easily in most cases. Only 6 fixing screws needed. The board works well straight from the box, and will support Phenom when the BIOS is updated. The board is faster (slightly) than my Gigabyte M56S-S3, and has a couple of features (like better CPU fan control) that I prefer. Have used this with AMD 5200 (F3 stepping) and Kingston Value DDR667 RAM - really good combination. Only downside is AMI BIOS, which is a little "clumsy" compared to the Award BIOS. I like the fact that MSI have used solid electrolytics where important too, which also keeps the height profile down. MSI have a Live Update facility, which allows you to automatically find and update the BIOS and drivers, which all worked very well. Excellent, and this board can be had for peanuts if you shop around. Note that this board is not able to support 125W CPUs (so no 6000/6400 processors).
