 Review, MSI NEO-LSR 875P Canterwood Motherboard
By: Sverre Sjøthun, June 19, 2003  Print this article


The MSI NEO-LSR is the embodiment of MSI's skilled engineering team who have managed to design a really great motherboard. It has a lot of features, a really great layout, great looks, is resonably priced and is very stable. During our 2 month testing period we have yet to see this board hang or crash for any reason, save our own overzealous attempts at overclocking.

I can only come up with two things we didn't really like with the motherboard, both somewhat related to overclocking. When supercooling the processor to below zero, like we did, the temperature reading simply goes blank. Even though we had plenty cooling it still would have been nice to see what temperatures we were running at.

The second complaint is that when you overclock just that bit too much and the system won't start, you'll have to remove the powercord and reset the BIOS to make it boot properly again. We'd love to see a feature along the lines of the ASUS propritary C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall) as it would really increase the value of this board dramatically.

But what it all boils down to is that MSI has a true winner on their hands and we have no problems giving this board the DWPG.Com Editors Choice Award.

Finally, we would like to thank Komplett for supplying us with this board, Mamoz for supplying us with the processor and Corsair for their XMS4000 RAM.
