I wish these extra connectors would run parallel to the vertical edge but that’s only personal preference. I didn’t install the extra Windows software component due to it being a review motherboard but rest assured the hardware side of things works well. All it can hope to measure accurately is the air temperature in the socket which is quite a big disappointment. With 3DMark testing overall CPU, memory and graphics performance and Sandra providing the synthetic numbers, we have pretty much all bases covered. Notice that SSE benchmarks are performed in this test. Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Direct Sound AC97 Audio.

Peo2, the little push rod to lever the card from the socket is flanked closely by a capacitor making it very hard to operate with your fingers, even for someone like me who has quite small hands.
MSI K7T266 Pro2-A – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT266A
As always though, it rpo2 depends on the applications that you run and whether they will be able to take advantage of the new speed increases. Sony or Mitsumi Case and Power Supply: Before we get to the benchmarks, let’s take a look at the test system.
It’s a decently complex scene and should stress CPU and main memory very well.
All in all, not a hugely compelling upgrade over current AMD DDR solutions, but the speed increases are there to be used if you can take advantage of them. Here we see the corresponding All it can hope to measure accurately is the air temperature in the socket which is quite a big disappointment.
MSI K7T Pro2-RU – VIA KTA Motherboard Roundup – January
MSI also had the foresight to stick down two clear pieces of plastic beneath each of the 2 center socket clips where you attach heatsinks. As you can ,7t266, MSI has taken the chipset and added its own twists. Under XP is fine. It’s nice to see different colours being used on motherboard PCB’s to make a change from the usual green.
I wish these extra connectors would run audlo to the vertical edge but that’s only personal preference. Thank you Allen for your help and advice. Finally before we hit the pretty pictures, the tests are performed at the default system speed of Mhz 9 x and Mhz 9 x k7y266 the improvements to be gained both in clock speed and memory bandwidth via a higher front side bus clock. But VIA have persevered and here it is. It’s essentially the same chip design as the KT, but with a much improved memory controller.
Only glaring bad spots should be noted and the MSI has none. Thanks to The Overclocking Store.

The inclusion of things like USB2. Software installation was also simple.
Sun Valley, ID Posts: Physical installation of the board was a cinch. However, I’ve had nothing but problems with the onboard sound driver under Windows XP. However they ARE quicker and that’s what we are expecting. It was among the slowest chipsets around and it had one glaring problem – when the bus speed exceeded MHz, USB devices stopped working.
When VIA first announced their DDR chipset the KT, the whole hardware community was gearing up for quite an intense battle among the chipset makers. All times are GMT Can connect up to four IDE devices. Performance is good and overall the board seems great.
MSI have made a name for themselves by producing inexpensive and highly reliable motherboards that continually manage to perform well.
