You have to be pushing the current memory bandwidth limits on a previous chipset to really see the difference. A smart move on VIA’s part indeed. Click to find out more. On the MSI, let that setting do all the hard work. The current version of the BIOS is 1. My mouse continues to flash on and off as if there is a short in the wiring though I have swapped it with another and know that there is nothing wrong with it.

Now I am left wondering what exactly is this item under Other Devices?

All times are GMT OS is Win XP. However, the extremely nice guys over at MSI were happy to work with us to try and solve our problems and a BIOS flash is finally giving us some respectable numbers. There are also USB 2. They connect to a header on the motherboard and mirror the 4 LED’s above the audio connectors prp2 the ATX backplane that are visible if you open the case.

OS is Win XP. I am having a similar probem with a KT-7 raid motherboard running XP. Sun Aug 25, 8: I don’t know whether it’s the test configuration since other reviews of this board seem to have great performance and there may very well be issues running the KTA on the test setup we’re using here.

I’m very hopeful that a newer revision of the BIOS for the board will extract even more performance and bring things up to pro22 on this test setup. 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.

This is the second K7T Pro2 from MSI we’ve had here in Hexus labs due to time constraints in keeping the first board, but during the time we had with it, performance was significantly lower than expected.

The MHz increase in clock gives us a handy increase in core CPU speed from the already impressive performance at 1. Next up we have the memory bandwidth benchmarks. I have literally tried everything. Applications that shift a lot of data between main memory and the CPU will be the obvious benefactors with the KTA. I do not believe I have the option of restoring to a previous state.

Leave front case witing until later after youve got the brackets working properly If you follow these guidelines and still cannot get the devices recognized then you may need to take your computer to a local shop that deals with MSI and have it tested. Where on MSI’s site is version 3.

The plastic is there to protect the motherboards trace lines from being damaged when a heatsink is installed. Thumbs up to MSI and if they can sort out the small issues in a later revision, they can’t fail to succeed with this board.

So how does the layout of the K7T Pro2 stack up?

In this case, moving from the KT to the new A version should really be as easy as dropping the new chipset into the place of the old. V-MAP chips are the same size and have the same pin compatible layout that makes this possible.

With 3DMark testing overall CPU, memory and graphics performance and Sandra providing the synthetic numbers, we have pretty much all bases covered. The top left placement is a good choice however and gets my thumbs up. This is an optional feature and one we were very glad to nsi MSI had included on the board.

However, 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 k7tt266 quite small hands.

A Quick Note on Installation and Software. All it can hope to ms accurately is the air temperature in the socket which is quite a big disappointment.

Overall conclusion So how do we find the MSI as a whole? Apart from that we see nothing unusual here. The RAID connectors are close to the bottom right and run 90 degrees to the regular connectors. In this case, that means the Northbridge and Southbridge. It’s essentially the same chip design as the KT, but with usn much improved memory controller.
