Comments: I have been using this with Dual Opteron 246 for a few months and have never seen BSOD. The HSFs come with this board are good, just I cannot try my water cooling on this. Excellent board!

Comments: Support of a normal 20+4 ATX power supply and ATX case will work on this board (Read Manual).

Board is really noisy if you do not enable the smart fan feature.

Add-on sound card would be a good idea too, there is only a header and a seperate connection peice for sound.

Comments: The MSI MS-9130 (K8T Master2-FAR) is an excellent board. The only problem I had was with my video card shorting out and frying both the board and card (They went up in flames). The nicest part is it runs on a standard ATX power supply even though it looks like it needs the 24pin connector, there are just optional pins but they are recommended when running as a server. Another great part is the supplied fans work better than the ones supplied by retail processors. They are made of solid copper. It is also done with all generic sized pieces so that it fits perfectly in almost every case on the market and I have installed it in 7 completely different cases made by different manufacturers for a grand total of 50 computers so far without having to do a single modification.

3 out of 5 eggsNot quite what new egg shows

Comments: Bought two of these for two high end graphics work stations I am building. Havent finished putting them together yet, but a few problems I ran into.

1) NewEgg has this listed as an ATX mobo. Although it fits in a ATX box it requires an ESP12V 24 pin power supply.

2) The mobo is different from the one pictured. The one shown in neweggs pic's is the orginall version of the mobo that allowed use of the amd heat sinks. The current version requires you to use the MSI head sinks that are not AMD approved their by voiding your 3 year warrant if you bought retail processors.

3) Both of the I/O Sheilds i got were tweaked and would not fit into my ASUS Vento cases. They required modifications to get them into the opening.


I will post another review when i get everything running.

Chris

5 out of 5 eggsGreat! and look at that price, too

Comments: This MSI K8T Master2-FAR (MSI MS-9130) is a great MB. Just plugged it in and it ran right out of the box. Runs with cheap (registered!) memory in dual mode, 2-sticks Corsair CM72SD512RLP-3200; over-clocks with a locked AGP and PCI bus. My Opteron 242’s are running at 1,800MHz (225MHz clock and HTT bus); cheap old Allied AL-A400 ATX 400W power supply, +3.3V 28A, +5V 40A. +12V. Runs Windows Server 2003 x32 and x64 just fine, too.

My CPU’s run at 18.5 degrees C above enclosure ambient with the stock, supplied fans and heat sinks from MSI, but to get a low ambient I use 6-case fans (top, front, side, 3-rear), with 12-total fans since I have 4-hard drives and 2-DVD drives giving off a lot of Watts.

Those people who have problems are probably, actually physically breaking something during installation, or screwed up the BIOS, or are trying to run an exotic graphics card that is meant for children playing games (I am using a simple, but very good Rosewill ATI 9200 SE because I need two monitors). Note: setup properly, DirectX 9.0c does show AGP texture acceleration is enabled.

My only complaint about the MS-9130 MB is memory bandwidth. Seems low according to SiSoftware Sandra; although, the reviews I have read show the MSI K8T Master2-FAR as an excellent performer in all categories.

For a different MB, you might look at the ASUS K8N-DL if you want a nice board with many more features, and RAID everywhere, IDE and SATA, with a gazillion SATA connections, But no AGP.

5 out of 5 eggsFast Board

Comments: MB is great, fast, and everything I could ask for, only one thing is newegg did not mention is that the memory has to be server memory(ECC Registered) for the board to work other than that no complains. Newegg was very fast about shipping my order, from west coast to Detroit in 3 days.

4 out of 5 eggsJanus

Comments: After nearly a month and a half I have it working and working great! I think the MSI quality control <font>d</font>rop the ball on this board. The first board I got worked two times and did not post after. RMAd it newegg got a new board only to find that this package did not have the heatsink retaining back pressure plate for the second CPU! Newegg tried valiantly to save the day but was tharted by the fact that the heatsinks on these boards are actually Xeon 603 style!!! (FYI, that is why MSI provides heatsinks with the board, but kiss any AMD warranty goodbye), well actually I did not want to send the board back at my expense because it was already 3 weeks after the purchase and I was frustrated with the whole affair. Make sure to get a Power supply with good amps on the 12volt rail, get buffalo RAM (you can use DDR 400 even with 244s as long as they are CG0 stepping). If the temps on the board say they are at 60C, the temp. diodes are bad. Checked the temp on a MB that said the CPUs were at 62C but the laser temp probe said it was only 35C!!! After all the initial trouble, my rig purrs! 2x244s, 1GB RAM Buffalo, 2xSATA Hitachi, Aspire ATX-AS520W PS.
