The cooler the better and you can see MSI using thermal paste. That’s often something most other manufacturers neglect.
This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp. Only particular RAM modules synced well with the new chipset and helped us complete our benchmark suite.
MSI K7N2 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – nForce2 SPP
Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news.
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. The nForce was faster and more advanced, however after long delay the nForce eventually reached a market where the main competitor had now changed. That would be difficult to foresee since the Ahtlon XP has an impressive CPU line-up and the platform itself could easily last through the next year.
We were happy to see that MSI places a fan header just above the AGP slot, users of third party videocard cooling like the Thermaltake Crystal Orb can surely appreciate this. The board is a no frills version, and does not feature integrated graphics.
MSI K7N2-L nForce2 Motherboard Review –
Little things like this show how dedicated a company is to quality. The problem seems to originate from the BIOS which was not properly optimized for the new chipset.
Now a days, you can get an nForce2 board from any of the large motherboard manufacturers easily. Ships with the following: Performance was good, but it just couldn’t compete with VIA’s chipsets at the time.
MSI is just one of the many nForce2 motherboard vendors motherboagd has also moved forward with the new nForce2 Ultra chipset variants and has completely phased out its older models based on the initial nForce2 SPP.
Consequently, the nForce chipset was delayed yet again, and eventually reached the markets in October, albeit in limited quantities. The K7N2-L is smaller then most other AMD motherboards out there, so you shouldn’t have any problems installing this board motherbaord a mni tower case.
We certainly hope that this will be an issue of the past as time goes on and with manufacturers updating their BIOS consistently.
Will they be the last to support Socket-A? Introduction With the Ahtlon 64 looming in the horizon, it looks like the Socket-A platform is on its last lap. With the nForce2 Ultra this time around, MSI is actively pursuing the feature-hungry enthusiasts and overclockers who would normally hunt for motherboqrd boards with extra overclocking headroom.
