But what do we get over the KT? The floppy connector is also grouped here which is where it should be to lessen the cable length required over a bottom edge placement. In situations where a tall case is used, it might prove difficult to reach the connectors with the cables. Did you set up your board according to the Bios set up guide at the top of this forum and did you use the operating system guide to install Windows XP? Three operating systems, Windows 98, Windows and Windows XP were installed without any problems. 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.

I always like to take a look at the layout of the motherboards that pass through my system.

VIA KT266A Initial Roundup – October 2001

Under XP is fine. This is an optional feature and one we were very glad to see MSI had included on the board.

All in all it’s a good layout with only the RAID connector orientation being the problem for me. Overall conclusion So how do we find the MSI as a whole? Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. All USB ports is the correct setting.

I have literally tried everything. Analysing the layout I always like to take a look at the layout of the motherboards that pass through my system.


For the average home user playing a few games here and there and using office application on something like the AMD platform, the upgrade doesn’t make sense really. Here are a list of sites: At MHz, the run takes 50 seconds.

VIA Apollo KTA chipset Specifications Before we get our hands dirty in the specifications, remember a chipset is just that, a set of individual chips that work together to provide the services the AMD platform needs to function. If the password doesn’t match up, the board refuses to boot. Page 1 of 4 1 2 3 4 Last Jump to page: We’ll be looking to add a Flask rpo2 run to future reviews if possible to illustrate the performance increases across a new chipset or CPU.

Would it totally sweep me prk2 my feet and carry me into a glorious world of high overclockability where DDR is the only way to go? Okay, back to the board There are also USB 2. It’s a nice addition and gives you an extra piece of mind and seems to work well. When the KT chipset was eventually released, it was met with quite a bit of disappointment.

K7T Pro2-A Usb ?

Performance One of the biggest selling points of this new wave of KTA boards is the increased performance. Of course, this board isn’t perfect, there are a few things I would have liked to have seen done like removing the AMR and dropping in an extra PCI slot. Joined Aug Posts Privacy policy and Terms of Use. Sat Aug 24, 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 pri2 advantage of them.


This is the first motherboard directly supporting USB 2. The current version of the BIOS is 1. BSOD’s do occur however and the audio stops sometimes. It has to be done through Windows Update? Everything else is standard.

On the motherboard itself is stamped the additional note Ver: So any reference to USB 2. A thermistor is present, but it’s a surface mount type, like a resistor and comes nowhere to touching the CPU. The manual makes not reference to the procedure to enable a working motherboard if the SmartKey is lost you can use a new SmartKey as long as you provide the correct password and the password is then copied to the new SmartKey and you enter the wrong password 3 times, locking the BIOS and the system completely.

Of course, the benchmarking crowd will love it.
