I own that mobo and I can say from personal experience that is a great mobo: stable, very good for overclock, advanced bios, the mobo is able to make the best setings by himself, for e.g. my ram are 675Mhz and the mobo set it to 667Mhz so it can be 1:1 ratio with the FSB(1333), very good online support(drives, manuals...MSI rullz here), best bang for the buck.

Out of curiosity, how in hell did you get 675MHz RAM?

First, The Neo2-FR only officially supports up to 800MHz, and there is no possible way that the BIOS would overclock your RAM.; Second, RAM only comes in 66MHz steps (Meaning your RAM is more than likely 667MHz); Third, The only type of RAM that offers 1333MHz is DDR3, unless you overclock DDR2.
