The company emphasized high integration to minimize the cost to implement their solutions. The overall layout is clean, aided by the almost jumper-less design of the motherboard. We certainly would have appreciated some voltage adjustment in this instance. Allows two floppy disk drives and four IDE devices. See details for full description. Update your nVidia graphics processing unit to the latest drivers.

Wikimedia Commons has media related to Silicon Integrated Systems. Fuzzy Logic 3 overclocking tool. Layout As is our customary tradition, we start at the top and vya our way down. Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively, an average score was taken.

We fully understand and appreciate that MSI are trying to engineer a board to meet a certain budget, but we would have liked to have seen a more substantial on-board sound solution. By very definition this almost precludes an extensive feature list.

Further investigation in the box reveals a rather well written manual, the ubiquitous IDE cables in the form of one ATA and one floppy cable respectively, we would have liked to see two ATA cables supplied as standard, surely a motherboard manufacturer wouldn’t incur much of a surcharge by supplying another?.

Unfortunately, overclocking options are kept to a bare minimum with a lack of RAM voltage adjustment coupled with limited CPU voltage adjustment. We firstly see the 12v P4 connector at the very top of the board, a place that I favour as the trailing wire doesn’t have to navigate over the P4 heatsink. BIOS, stability and overclocking. SiS and MSI’s engineers certainly seem to know how to engineer a stable board. This motherboard has been superseded by M-V which is nearly identical and just as good.


Once rebooted it guesses a decent, overclocked speed, quite clever really. What makes the SiS chipset rather appealing is that it suffers from no legal wrangling with Msii, a fact that has ensured that many respected motherboard manufacturers are only too happy to produce SiS based ‘boards.

This item may or may not be in original packaging.

The locking mechanism is a nice touch, it shows MSI’s attention to detail. It would make initial installation of all your devices that little bit easier.

Offers hyper-threading with the right CPU. We’re slightly disappointed with only having two fan connectors on-board, one of which will be pre-taken with the CPU fan. We received no errors or anomalies that could be directly attributed to the motherboard. MSI are siw making a concerted effort to distinguish their boards from the rather homogenous motherboard world. The usual gamut of options are present along with a rather handy IRQ re-routing option, one that comes in useful if too many devices are set to share the same IRQ.

Once an AGP card is inserted, you cannot remove system memory without first having to remove the msk card. Unfortunately for VIA, the lawsuit between themselves and Intel, with respect to PIV licenses, deterred many top-line motherboard manufacturers from producing boards based on their chipset.


Once reported, our staff will be notified and the comment will be reviewed. Their varying combinations can help the end-user to define the exact nature of the problem at hand.

SiS / Graphics Driver for Windows /XP Driver – TechSpot

Testing for stability seems to be a non-event recently. See details for full description. Once again, we see the inclusion of the rather redundant CNR slot, we’d happily substitute that for an extra PCI slot.

As you can see, there are a multitude of options available, thereby ensuring you get the most out of your RAM. The situation has changed somewhat today.

This means the item has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to full working order and is in excellent condition. It also acts as a rudimentary problem-solving device. We certainly would have appreciated some voltage adjustment in this instance. Today we’ll investigate just how good MSI’s interpretation sus been.

Micro Star International MSIlike many other premier motherboard manufacturers, have been quick to produce a motherboard based on SiS’ reference ‘board.
