Generation Change: Eight Motherboards For The Athlon 64

MSI K8T Neo, Continued

The package includes IDE and floppy round cables, Serial ATA cable including power adapter, an extensive handbook as well as a slot adapter with two more USB ports and debug LEDs for tracing error sources if the computer doesn't start.

Core Center is MSI's control center. It determines clock rates for over and underclocking (Core Cell/Cool & Quiet).

No other manufacturers have gone this far yet: besides the automatic BIOS updating via the internet, the latest driver versions can also be brought up to date completely automatically. This should make it easier for beginners especially to keep their system up to the minute.

All important parameters can be configured in detail on the K8T Neo, without overwhelming you by a plethora of options.

Core Cell provides several levels for dynamic system overclocking: Private, Sergeant, Captain, Colonel and General. Captain stands for maximum overclocking of 5%.
