We certainly hope that this will be an issue of the past as time goes on and with manufacturers updating their BIOS consistently. Now a days, you can get an nForce2 board from any of the large motherboard manufacturers easily. That’s often something most other manufacturers neglect. Ships with the following: That would be difficult to foresee since the Ahtlon XP has an impressive CPU line-up and the platform itself could easily last through the next year.

MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR (nForce2 Ultra ) (Page 1/8) :: Articles :: ®
The nForce2 Ultra was vhipset to operate at FSB and was also marketed to have better overclocking potential. Ships with the following: The board is a no frills version, and does not feature chipzet graphics. Will they be the last to support Socket-A? The nForce was faster and more advanced, however after long delay the nForce eventually reached a market where the main competitor had now changed. Little things like this show how dedicated a company is to quality.
MSI is just one of the many nForce2 motherboard vendors that has also moved forward with the new nForce2 Ultra chipset variants and has completely phased out its older models based on the initial nForce2 SPP.
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Performance was good, but it just couldn’t compete with VIA’s chipsets at the time. We were happy to see that MSI places a fan header just above the AGP slot, users of third party videocard cooling like the Thermaltake Mso Orb can surely appreciate this.
Consequently, the nForce chipset was delayed yet again, and eventually reached the markets in October, albeit in limited quantities. The cooler the better and you can see MSI using thermal paste.

[M] MSI K7N2 Delta2 Platinum Athlon XP nForce2 Review
Check out the specifications below and go over to the next few pages to see how it compares with the recently reviewed Soltek SLFRN2. Now a days, you can get an nForce2 board from any of the large motherboard manufacturers easily.
We certainly hope that this will be an issue of the past as time goes on and with manufacturers updating their BIOS consistently. All the headers on the motherboard are clearly labelled so you’ll know what is what, and MSI uses a good amount of thermal material between the nForce2 SPP Northbridge and heatsink. Even so, most chipset vendors are giving their full support to Socket-A and the three major AMD motherboard chipset manufactures have all released their latest incarnations.
That would be difficult to foresee since the Ahtlon XP has an impressive CPU line-up and the platform itself could easily last through the next year.
The problem seems to originate from the BIOS which was not properly optimized for the new chipset. With the nForce2 Ultra this time around, M7n2 is actively pursuing the feature-hungry enthusiasts and overclockers who would normally hunt for high-end boards with extra overclocking headroom.
This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp. The K7N2-L is smaller then most other AMD motherboards out there, so you shouldn’t have any problems installing this board into a mni tower case.
