Further specifications are available off the msi website. I noticed quite a few views so hopefully it may have helped someone after a budget board.

Upon screwing down the heatsink there was a more comforting re-assurance than with some others boards. Another point, which is implied in the picture is quite low lying capacitors around the socket allowing breathing room between the motherboard capacitors and the CPU heatsink.
I would have liked an additional SATA port and wouldn’t have minded the extra couple of pounds expense. This isn’t really an issue, except if you wanted to play any games from this century and afterthen a PCI GPU would be required. Conclusion If you’re looking for a micro ATX board that offers flexibility between all OS’s win2k upwardsolder hardware and newer hardware then this MSI jsi is a solid and reliable choice.
Temporarily I am using this board in a DVR system, until it replaces the motherboard in a testing system after that. Mssi might seem like an obvious point, but finding a reliable board that I could use indefinitely on a p4 HT and then a dual core in the future was challenging.
As with any hardware, improvements could be made, but a solid base for most is essential, that is where this board delivers. Flexibility goes even further still.
To start off, il just outlay some brief specifications with opinions provided. Now on to the negative point of this board.

However the two DIMM’s onboard may be a bit misleading to some for the following reasons. Another possible negative point could be the limitation of just one PCI. Full driver discs include drivers for XP and Vista. With the graphics being onboard and no onboard memory you’re purely dependant on part of p4m00 ram being allocated for video memory. For example, upon installing the same CPU that has been used in a previous gigabyte board, mdi noticed the CPU clasp on the motherboard actually clipped the CPU down, instead of having an eerie feeling of a bent clasp like on other boards.

In the past with all other motherboards I have used, the DVR PCI card driver installation has caused havoc with motherboard drivers, however with this board, I didn’t suffer the same instability while installing drivers as I have in the past.
Although this is an issue with the PCI card itself, how this motherboard handles troublesome hardware is very impressive. The time now is Mac mini running W23k Server – 1. However, upon trying this with some memory I have kicking around it obviously didn’t work.
Another important point I nearly forgot to mention is the compatibility of the drivers. This should be noted before purchase that they cannot be interchanged, so DDR memory cannot be inserted in to a DDR2 slot and vice versa.
The motherboard seems very sturdy as well. It makes a change from either having to purchase an archaic board so you have XP support or a modern board like this one, that only supports Vista. You may have to register before you can p4j900
