The product: Because the MSI P6NGM-FD isn’t a high-end motherboard, there’s nothing special to report on the back of the motherboard. In one corner we find the various connections for hard drives and optical drives.
Above, you see the 4 ports on the motherboard. Directly under the last PCI port, there are connections for up to 6 USB ports. The layout of the 4 ports is decent.
Around the two ram DIMMS you also find the floppy connector and a connection for a PWM fan.
As mentioned before, the layout of the MSI P6NGM-FD is very good. The last thing we’ll look at is the connections found on the IO-shield.
Because it’s possible to connect 6 more USB ports to the motherboard, MSI should have placed two of the six on the IO shield. Another thing worth noticing is that the DVI port cannot be used with a DVI to VGA converter – Why MSI has chosen this is unknown.
All in all the MSI P6NGM-FD has many nice features and a decent design, but with a few flaws that don’t seem very well considered.
BIOS: Immediately we’ll reveal that the MSI P6NGM-FD doesn’t pack any new settings in the bios. But it’s still worth taking a look at. The first picture you see is this.
