MSI K9. AGM3- FIH Review [H]ard Forum. Ok guys, this is my first review here in the forums, so any comments will be helpful. Also I haven't tested everything like in a traditional MB review, but I can update later if it would help anyone out. MSI K9. AGM3- FIHSpecifications: CPU: AMD Athlon.

The packaging was pretty standard, however as I am used to dealing with motherboards not as value orientated, it feels pretty lacking. The manual was decent, and two driver CDs were provided (one with Windows XP drivers, and the other with Windows Vista 3. I will note that no drivers were included for Windows XP x.
OS of choice. Vista x. XP6. 4. Also a SATA cable, IDE cable, SATA Power converter, and rear panel were supplied in the packaging. No Raid driver disk was supplied. The box art advertised HDMI, AMD Live!
Board Layout. The board layout is what initially caught my attention. There is a 1x PCIe sot at the top, then a 1. PCIe slot, then 2 x PCI slots. This was required for me because I have modified my case to accept longer video cards when positioned in the 2nd slot, so if there was a PCIe 1. There was enough room surrounding the CPU area, and the SATA ports were low enough on the board to allow for a longer video card to be installed without interference.
The biggest negative about this board is the location of fan headers. There is only 1 additional fan header on the board, and it is below the memory slots. I am used to have an additional fan header towards the top of the board (near the voltage regulators or CPU socket area), as my case has a fan near the CPU that runs off of a header that I don't plug in until everything is already in place (Micro ATX case Lian- Li PCV3.
Plugging in this fan was nearly impossible without disassembling the entire system. Below is a picture of the case showing the fan and the motherboard tray: The passive heatsinks were nice and do not interfere with any card installation, as my previous motherboard had a small fan that died pretty easily, and this will not have that problem (as well is completely silent, and for some people out there looking for a HTPC silent computer this is an obvious plus). I was afraid that the system power connector would interfere with my video card, but that was a narrow miss. Video Cards with large heatsinks on the back might not fit though. Below is another image of the board: To activate dual channel memory mode, identicle memory sticks need to be placed in opposite colored slots. The SATA 2 ports are located in the bottom right of the motherboard, as well as front panel connectors, USB headers, and then the firewire header.
Also another note is that the Power LED connector is 2 pin only, so if your case has a 3 pin Power LED connector on it, you either have to get an adaptor, or else cut it in half (what I did) to get it to fit. The rear panel is fairly nice, although there is room to supply additional ports. Going from top to bottom, there are 2 PS/2 ports in their traditional locations, then a HDMI port, then a raised VGA port, then two USB ports with a firewire port on top, then two USB ports with the 1. The manual indicates that the area below the VGA connector is for a DVI connector, and for MSI to leave this out to save $. DVI is very common these days. Also the chipset supports 1. USB ports, so MSI should have bit the bullet for another $.
USB ports onboard (I could see putting two USB ports next after the PS/2 ports then put the HDMI connector above it). See below for an image labelling the back ports: The board also supports a COM port, TV Output, and S/PDIF connections, however MSI did not bundle adaptors with the board. BIOSThe AMI BIOS layout main screen is as follows: > Standard CMOS Features > H/W Monitor> Advanced CMOS Features Load Optimized Defaults> Advanced Chipset Features BIOS Setting Password> Integrated Perephirals Save & Exit Setup> Power Management Setup Exit Without Saving> PNP/PCI Configuration. Standard CMOS Features allows the user to change Date & Time, see IDE and SATA Devices (for SATA CD drives, and raid drives, NO DEVICE will be displayed in this area), Floppy A, and then the user can view system area (see CPU type and speed, BIOS vesion, Physical Memory and Usable Memory). Advanced CMOS Features lets the user adjust Full Screen Logo display, Quick Booting, Bootup NUM Lock status, Boot to OS/2, IOAPIC Function, MPS Table Version, and BOOT Sequence. Advanced Chipset Features only lets the user adjust DRAM Timing (only latency, not DRAM speeds) and VGA Shared Memory Size. Integrated Peripherals is pretty standard compared to other boards, letting the user adjust USB controller, USB Device Legacy Support, Onboard LAN Controller, LAN Option ROM (assuming referring to boot from LAN), Onboard IEEE 1.
Onboard Audio Controller, On- Chip ATA Devices, and I/O Device Configuration. Power Management gives the user the power to control ACPI Function, ACPI Standby state, Suspend Time Out Minutes, Power Button Function, Restore AC on Power Out, and Wakeup Event Setup. PNP/PCI Configuration lets the user change the Promary Video adapter, PCI Latency Timer, PCI Slot 1 IRQ, PCI slot 2 IRQ, IRQ DMA Resources, and DMA Resource Setup. H/W Monitor lets the user change Spread Spectrum, Auto disable DIMM/PCI clock, Chassis Intrusion, Cool'n'Quiet (default disabled), Smart FAN Target, PC Health Status (shows fan speeds and tempuratures). BIOS Summary: There are less options here than most other boards (even comparable m. ATX AMD boards such as the Giga- byte board reviewed at [H] here http: //enthusiast.
MTM4. MCwx. LCxo. ZW5. 0a. HVza. WFzd. A==). If the user has a USB mouse, the system will error out every reboot until the user hits the F1 key. Also there are no bus speed adjustments at all (memory bus, Hypertransport bus, FSB bus, etc.). No voltage adjustments are allowed either (so if the memory purchased requires higher voltages than stock to run at DDR2- 8. Definitely do not buy an Athlon.
X2 Black Edition for this motherboard as you would waste your $$$ on buying a Multiplier Unlocked CPU and having a system that doesn't let you adjust the multiplier. Performance and Subsystem Testing.
I have been unable to perform any testing here, but I did pay attention to subsystem testing on boards with similar features and took that into consideration when purchasing the board. Onboard Audio was not important to me because I have a Creative X- Fi that I have planned on using with the system, however it is Realtek HD Audio and should be similar to the Giga- byte board linked to earlier. For Drive Performance, it should be pretty much identicle to the Giga- byte board listed above, which was pretty impressive.
The ATI SB6. 00 southbridge appeared to give some pretty good results, especially in SATA Raid- 0, which I run. For Network Performance, the system has a PCIe Gigabit Realtek based adaptor. The Giga- byte board has a PCI based version, and the results were not that impressive. Looking at other reviews here, I found a MSI board that had the same adapter and performance wasn't bad. I have a gigabit Wireless adapter in my house and I didn't want bad performance or bad CPU usage due to the Realtek PCI solution on the Giga- byte board, so this was a plus for me (although if I had read this review ahead of time, I would have bought the Giga- byte board and bought a PCIe network card to through in there). Test System. I will not be doing any performance testing at all, but here is the system configuration: AMD Athlon.

Also even though I disabled onboard audio, windows still found the onboard audio and drivers were installed for it in windows update. Conclusion. It would be difficult for me to recommend this board to anyone.
Even though the layout was nice except for the Fan Header, the BIOs practically ruins it for me.
