The Lobby tests are known to be especially bandwidth-hungry, a fact that is borne out by our results. Log in Don’t have an account? Layout Starting at the top and working our way down, we see the ATX power connector is located at the at the top left of the board. The KTA boasted an enhanced North bridge with a far more efficient memory controller coupled with deeper memory buffers. Conclusion The first thing that is clearly evident here is the the evolutionary nature of the KT chipset.

Whilst slightly improving on an already excellent chipset, we feel as if Via’s efforts were not totally convincing.
We removed the heatsink and were glad to see MSI had the care and attention to use thermal paste as a conduit between the Northbridge and heatsink.
If you’re looking for a Socket A motherboard to replace one from an older platform, or are u,tra one that will give you maximal performance, then the MSI should most definitely make it onto your shortlist. Let’s have a look at xx32 Quality, a resolution that has some real-life meaning. It’s a nice feature to have, but it’s more of a novelty item in this case; we’d trade it for on-board Ethernet any day.
Again, running asynchronously offers a benefit. A u,tra red greets you as you open the box. Heck you never can have too many right! We overclocked the processor, ran different modules of RAM, used the most aggressive memory timings available. RAID 1 backs-up the data on one drive and mirrors tk3 on the redundant drive, far more useful for data safety.
Starting at the top and working our way down, we see the ATX power connector is utra at the at the top left of the board. Or perhaps, is it just a simple case of “DDR” fever? RAID 0 simply amalgamates 2 drives so that they work as a single larger drive.
The integrated USB 1.
This, in our opinion, is a strange location. Let’s have ultta look at how our protagonists got on when set to calculate Pi to 10 million places.

Ideally, we would have liked to see the full complement of DDR slots. We at Hexus like to see just how far we can push our kit.
We’re seeing a continuing trend here, one that shows that running asynchronously offers a small benefit. This allows them to be in close proximity to the drives they service. To measure the limitation of our board, we used a factory-unlocked 1. The impressive overclocking options coupled with our new XP processor from AMD ensured that we would be furnished with a reasonable overclock.
The KTA boasted an enhanced North bridge with a far more efficient uktra controller coupled with deeper memory buffers. The time is almost 2 seconds faster than when memory is run at FSB.
MSI KT3 Ultra – VIA KT Motherboard Roundup – June
Ultrq with the good, inevitably come some of the few quirks that were present in the KTPro2. MSI have a deserved history of producing rock-solid motherboards that arrive in the marketplace shortly after a chipset revision.
The extensive sounnd list informs you that this board is jam-packed with features. At present, only Maxtor, in the form of the DX series, currently have hard drives on the market that comply with this new standard. I like my fans, and I like plenty of them. However, as you will see later in this review, the benefits of DDR are tangible.
Here you can see the comprehensive memory timing options available.
It’s interesting to note that the codec on MSI’s board actually has Realtek’s logo on the chip Realtek owns Avance Logic while all of the other chips are clearly labeled as Avance Logic.
