So what can we draw from the following numbers? 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. 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. The KT is almost universally regarded as quite slow, hard to make work and it’s generally unloved. Before we get to the benchmarks, let’s take a look at the test system. They connect to a header on the motherboard and mirror the 4 LED’s above the audio connectors on the ATX backplane that are visible if you open the case.

Hi, In short term, I’m going to buy the Digi system. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty.

When the KT chipset was eventually released, it was met with quite k7t2266 bit of disappointment. So what of this new chipset? The answers at first glance appears to be very well and a resounding yes! You have to be pushing the current memory bandwidth limits on a previous chipset to really see the difference.

However they ARE quicker and that’s what we are expecting. Share Facebook Twitter Pinterest. Write a customer review. This is never really the ideal situation and definitely not the best for a chipset which does quite warm during testing.

I too am thinking of purchasing this board. Here audioo what I’m interested in buying, I include only the motherboard specification, I think it’s the most important part as well as the processorisn’t it?: Plextor the faster the better Video card: As you can see, MSI has taken the chipset and added its own twists.

Introduction MSI were kind enough to courier me their latest, not-even-on-the-website, motherboard for review, the K7T Pro2. Load of room around the socket is always a welcome bonus. See questions and answers. What a waste in my opinion.

It may be a component in my setup, it may be a BIOS setting tweaked wrongly but I’m sure more memory performance is there to be unlocked. Only glaring bad spots should be noted and the MSI has none. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? 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.

This board initially faired just as badly.

I was a bit sceptical of its position at first, but, in my case at least, it seems to get the ATX connector out of the way very well seeing as though the ATX connector is the uadio bulky connector you’ll attach to a motherboard and also the most inflexible making a poor connector placement an extra hassle.

There is alot of great help right here also if you have any questions. As you are about to see, this seems to do wonders for performance!

Be the first to review this item. I always like to take a look at the layout of the motherboards that pass through my system.

SYS driver, BSOD’s on shutdown and the sound randomly seems to stop at any point during using the audio and doesn’t come back to life until you reboot. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs.

It’s certainly striking and with the gold Northbridge heatsink, I think MSI xudio tried to appeal to those who like to show off their PC’s in the case modding world.

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’ll be looking to expand the test suite over the coming weeks into a well rounded comprehensive test suite, something which previous Hexus reviews may possibly have lacked in the past.

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. This is in contrast to the KG7-RAID and AMD chipset where manual tweaking of the chipset settings is essential to make the board perform well and no high performance defaults setting is provided.

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.
