Regardless Msi should do better for its customers than that
Would be great if you could find link, I would be back on to MSI in a second if I had some info like that.

Will have to post the high quality responces I received from them, hardly even makes sense. Actually what the hell here it is.


Dear Stephen,

For your issue,first of all ,we are sorry that we have not given a satisfying answer in the last mail.

There are something we would like to explain to you :

1).What we can supply just is technical support,we have no right to order the differernt distributors or resellers.I believe that you can understand that what we can dicide and what we can not in our own duty.

2).Here what we can suggest is that will you please contact your reseller (the place you bought the board from) for more help. If the reseller for some reason cannot help, we have to suggest you to check if there is MSI distributors nearby. You could find their address or website on this link. wheretobuyIndex
If by chance , there is no MSI distributors, you can try to contact MSI office nearby. aboutus

3).Sorry again for any inconvenience caused by us!


If any one can makes sense of point one it would really help me out. :swearing:

Im still looking but the motherboard should some with it... not with the cards Which kinda makes sence because people with a CF board would get one but everyone just buying one card wouldn't! Considering that most sales are just one cards thats a lot of bridges doing nothing

Just try the 'i am a good customer, i have bought two cards, your compeditors provide a bridge etc and if you want business from me in future you had better get me one' Try that

i wonder if the 3800 series cf bridge is the same as the 4800 series, either way if you bought a retail version and it doesnt come with that i would have returned it before i installed the card.

also msi will never see any of my money again, after the 939 msi board i had k8n neo 2 had nforce 3 ultra chipset i think, worst board i have ever owned.

I had some issues with MSI user forum....but a while back I posted a little diddy that was pinned by the moderator there.


Think twice before you Overclock, here is why(Written by Bas)
« on: 30 July 02, 11:17:27 »

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Userguide: How to overclock your system.....
Hi there,

How to overclock your system with success

First by a motherboard, better buy a couple of them because they might blow....
Buy a very big cooler or water-cooling.
Buy a couple of CPU's, unlock them all by connecting the L1 bridges.
Buy a very big powersupply, 400-500 Watt of an AMD approved brand.
Buy PC2700 memory CAS2 single sided from a good brand.
Buy a lot of BIOS chips, because you need them if you had a bad flash.

Try all BIOS'ses until you have found the fastest...
Now we can start, load the High-performance BIOS settings to start with, if the system stay's stable, you can go on.
Set the FSB as high as you can (in steps of 1 MHz), sometimes you need to lower the multiplier until it doesn't post anymore....
Stay a bit below it, we need a post

Then start running speed tests, until you manage to finish them.
Watch your temperature at all times, it should not get over 80C in any case....the lower the better....
By this time you have spend so much money and time that you could have gotten a faster CPU and board
You probably have blown some stuff too, but hey who cares?
It's all to see how far we can go, isn't it?
Also be aware, that the settings someone else uses may not work on your system, it happens a lot when you are doing this....

Now it's time to get real, your system is allready a formula 1 system.....
Overclocking will only get the numbers a little bit higher....
This isn't worth the risk of blowing your system to pieces....
I find it a bad thing that most site's and magazines are talking about overclocking as if there are no risks....
We see it here in the forum all to often....and I assure you, the risks are very high!
Overclocking means going out of specs, and this can very easilly lead to serious damage of your system.
Not to mention the lifetime of your system, it will degrade very rapidly.
Unless you are very sure of what you are doing, this means you must be an electronical engineer of some sort, if not: you better stay far away from it.

Just my opinion on this matter

For the love of God man its the cards that come with it not the motherboard, again it even says on the packagaing it is included.
