MSI REWARDS - PARTICIPATE ON MSI FORUMS, GET REWARDS
MSI Dual Core Center version 188.8.131.52 dated as of 10th of the January 2008...is this is fixed finally or what? Doeas it work, and does anyone use this piece...for purpose of controlling various settings? Thanks in advance!
It seems to me that most if not all manufacture specific hardware monitoring software is hit and miss. What fix are you looking for? Program crash, quad core support? If they fix one thing or add support for new hardware they seem to break support for older hardware in the process. I'm a firm believer in overclocking at the bios level and only use software to verify settings, temps, voltages etc. and to control fan speeds. Speedfan has worked for the most part on every motherboard I have owned that supports monitoring and fan speed control.
While OC from BIOS we can see as sort of permanent to semi permanent solution, and as it is is perfectly clear that only that sort of OC really gives bang for buck. There are something else I would like to point out...my MSI for example sitting doing nothing for ages, yet gobbling same amount of electricity as if it works full blast! Well, I would like to be able to set few profiles as I had been able on my old trusty Abit AN7, where for an example underclock of the CPU means work overnight, eventual DL or anything else, standard clock means everyday task, writing this post and browsing the net and of course OC means gaming, video encoding or tasks with extreme demand why I actually build this system! More than 95% of the time my CPU happily idling while clicking on 3GHz...well that's my point! Am I wrong in anything here? And besides all, CoreCell chip is built onto the board with exactly that function...to enable flexible under, standard and overclocking function of this board! What do you think!
