If the password doesn’t match up, the board refuses to boot. All it can hope to measure accurately is the air temperature in the socket which is quite a big disappointment. It’s the little things all rolled into one that make the MSI stand out for me. Does not this setting cover every option? Software installation was also simple. In situations where a tall case is used, it might prove difficult to reach the connectors with the cables.

From the diagram, we can also see the VT Southbridge implements AC’97 and MC’97 audio and modem facilities of which the manufacturer of a motherboard using this chip provides the headers and support for. Here are a list of sites: I always like to take a look at the layout of the motherboards that pass through my system.

Joined Aug Posts If it does the port peo2 working and you only need to load the relevant drivers for that device to work. I can always reboot and recheck.

Review: MSI K7T Pro2 – Mainboard –

A thermistor is present, but it’s a surface mount type, like a resistor and comes nowhere to touching the CPU. Why is it that MSI cannot provide a CD with their motherboards, or updates through their website that does not require having to use Uab Update for this specific added functionality? K7t266 the average home user playing a few games here and there and using office ueb on something like the AMD platform, the upgrade doesn’t make sense really.


What a waste in my opinion. Performance on the MSI never dropped below the performance of the KG7-RAID when the performance issues had been ironed out so we can say with confidence that it’s faster than that board.

Everything else is standard. So if this is what youve done you need to run system restore and roll back to before you tried the MSI drivers or you need to reinstall the OS for best results 3.

Can you proo2 uninstalling the unknown USB devices that you have listed and rebooting XP to see what drivers if any it is looking for. Now I am left wondering what exactly is this item under Other Devices?

VIA KT266A Initial Roundup – October 2001

It’s a nice addition and gives you an extra piece of mind and seems to work well. At any rate, it is so far from being slow!

The capacitor placement fouls the ability of the retention mechanism to work well and you have to resort to poking at the lever with something in an attempt to make it budge. The numbers in this benchmark fall right into line with the Reference numbers provided with Sandra in this new version. The top left placement is a good choice however and gets my thumbs up.

One of the biggest selling points of this new wave of KTA boards is the increased performance. Of course, the benchmarking crowd will love it. Notice that SSE benchmarks are performed in this test. The MHz increase in clock gives us a handy increase in core CPU speed from the already impressive performance at 1.


Well let’s take a look at the chipset specs before we k77t266 our way to MSI’s implementation of it. It’s easier to visualise this using a diagram, so take a quick uzb at the following VIA provided layouts of the chipset.

It’s certainly striking and with the gold Northbridge heatsink, I think MSI have tried to appeal to those who like to show off their PC’s in the case modding world. As you can see, MSI has taken the chipset and added its own twists.

There are a total of 6 USB 1. It was among the slowest chipsets around and it had one glaring problem – when the bus speed exceeded MHz, USB devices stopped working. The notable additions include the USB 2. I must point out that it has been a real struggle to get performance kk7t266 of the MSI board.

Let’s start with Sandra first off: You have to be pushing the current memory bandwidth limits on a previous chipset to really see the difference. MSI were kind enough to courier me their latest, not-even-on-the-website, motherboard for review, the K7T Mis.
