Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: However, if lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, the default multiplier is used instead. Board’s form factor is microATX x mm. The practical goal of our test is to find out if the CPU’s high overclocking potential is hindered by the board and to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes. Therefore, further simplification seems logical this time, given the significantly reduced need for cooling. Supplemented by Norton Internet Security antivirus suite and firewall.

Frequency control is only supported for fans with 4-pin connectors. This model on manufacturer’s web-site Board was kindly provided for testing by the manufacturer Dmitriy Laptev lpt ixbt. The reason why board manufacturers are not responding very actively to GeForce is the delay in its release. Msii response 40 Hz to 15 kHzdB: RAM is set by using multiplier correction ,9ngm3 the standard frequency for the modules being used, unless the manufacturer specifies methods for improving memory overclocking, in which case their effectiveness is also explored.
Once threshold is exceeded rotation frequency is gradually increased to maximum. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Therefore, further simplification seems logical this time, given the significantly reduced need for cooling.
The k9gnm3 houses all elements provided for by design except a DVI-port. MSI developers, in contrast to their colleagues from Biostar, used the layout provided by single chip chipset not to place peripheral ports more freely, but rather to leave more room around the processor socket. The three-channel impulse voltage stabilizer uses 2 field transistors per channel wiring k99ngm3 allows 35 capacitors of microfarad each and 4 of microfarad each.
It is important to realize that overclocking performance varies by motherboard and is, to some extent, an individual characteristic kn9gm3 each specific unit. They sometimes reach over degrees C, as is the case with video adapter components, and it is not a reason for concern unless glitches are detected. Nevertheless, just as we have predicted NVIDIA fans and ordinary users, who have a clear idea of their requirements and who have come to prefer GeForcewill find their needs satisfied.
Conclusions The MSI motherboard being tested will hardly have any trouble with sales. This test also assesses the board’s ability to mwi revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc.
Overclocking In order to evaluate the overclocking capabilities of the board and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed CPU to the highest frequency possible that also allows for stable operation.
HDMI-DVI-adapter would have been a very useful addition to the standard package, considering the lack of a corresponding port.

Applying this test procedure, we are able to effectively use all of the test board’s supported abilities, including increasing processor core voltage, and if necessary, correcting multipliers and adjusting system and peripheral bus frequencies.
HDMI port steadily advances towards becoming customary. One reason is that only two manufacturers at present provide GeForce chipset on their boards. Video 3Digests Video cards: For this reason, it is impossible for us, and any other review, o9ngm3 determine the overclocking potential of any board with megahertz precision.
We have only two complaints related to settings — insufficient range ,si CPU core voltage control although, it is excused by the board’s category and lack of HT-bus multiplier selection which isn’t difficult to add in any case.
Results are close to upper limit for the codec being used. BioShock Infinite and Metro: A rare board of this category can operate at such high HT frequency without having to raise chipset voltage.
Well, this model wasn’t intended to draw attention of those, who are interested in a simple VGA-DVI link for a multi-display configuration without any “multimedia” add-ons. Please enable Msu to view the comments powered by Disqus.

Capacitor manufacturer couldn’t be identified. On one hand it is good, because it allows to install a massive CPU cooler, on the other hand the placement of chipset in the area of expansion slots suggests using a low-profile heat sink, which, to make things worse, turns out to be in still-air zone while large video adapter coolers can additionally block airflow to the chipset. The board successfully passed all tests, though the chipset heat sink of course was hot in modes of maximum load on the graphics core.
Its appearance on AMD G chipset motherboards is followed by introduction of this rectangular port to GeForce chipset motherboards. The practical goal of our test is to find out if the CPU’s high overclocking potential is hindered by the board and to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes.
Whereas AMD has already attracted all major manufacturers and most of small ones including even very small ones, if one takes a look at what is being offered in the rather conservative industrial k9gnm3 segment.
Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. This board has good overclocking capabilities and excellent functionality.
