Thankfully, we have more than enough room around the CPU socket to mount large coolers. Anyway, on to the results. We ran at xx32 Normal preferences, sound was disabled. Vcore voltage is adjustable in 0. Memory can be tweaked quite extensively too, with the inclusion of the performance-enhancing 1T command. The demo automatically generates statistics after each run.

As the Athlon matured, so did Via’s chipsets. The rather stylish Northbridge heatsink dominates the middle half of the board. The ample bandwidth afforded by DDR seems more suited to the role. The first thing that is clearly evident here is the the evolutionary nature of the KT chipset.

Still, with a total of eight USB ports, we’re sure you wouldn’t miss one. The range of voltages available for manipulation is one of the broadest seen from MSI.

Whilst slightly improving on an already excellent chipset, we feel as if Via’s efforts were not totally convincing. MSI have a deserved history of producing rock-solid motherboards that arrive in the marketplace shortly after a chipset revision.

Since I tend to switch between a RadeonUlra 3Ti, and several other video cards several times a week hey its all part of being the Fastest Webmaster my biggest gripe was a little capacitor near the AGP lock.


Fuzzy Logic is a particular favourite of ours, it safely overclocks your CPU through Windows, thereby eliminating many failed bootups.

VIA KT333 Motherboard Roundup – June 2002

As with previous USB 2. This one takes a ultraa to complete. Not only do you have to navigate the ATX connector across the CPU cooler, it also becomes difficult to reach and unclip when removing the motherboard, especially if you use a large cooler. Any reduction in time would be more than welcome.

Again, running asynchronously offers a benefit.

MSI KT3 Ultra – VIA KT Motherboard Roundup – June

Let’s have a look at xx32 Quality, a resolution that has some real-life meaning. Overclocking The impressive overclocking options coupled with our new XP processor from AMD ensured that we would be furnished with a reasonable overclock. The lt3 for the various brackets are grouped close together toocolour-coded for simple installation.

Here we see an interesting result. Let’s have a look at the board and its specification. Often times manufacturers neglect the little things such as this. For those of you who crunch SETI as a pastime, even a second decrease in times would be most welcome. Although packaging is something we usually don’t talk about, it’s obvious that MSI has spent some time to money to make their motherboard boxes look good.

However, as you will see later in this review, the benefits of DDR are tangible. To measure the limitation of our board, we used a factory-unlocked 1. We feel that MSI’s ulltra of the KT chipset ultr been a successful one, ulta that marries performance to stability.


There was talk of incorporating USB 2.

If ever there was a test to differentiate between competing memory sub-systems then Quake 3 would be it. Thankfully, ky3 have more than enough room around the CPU socket to mount large coolers.

We tried our utmost to engineer a situation were we could make the board crash. Really good in fact. Support from most major motherboard manufacturers was quickly garnered, a partnership that has successfully lasted until the present day.

The might of the XP is certainly evident here.

MSI KT3 Ultra ARU Motherboard Review

Subjective listening revealed that whilst not on a par with Nforce’s excellent APU, the on-board solution was more than adequate for general Windows duty, we’d say it was on a par with C-Media’s excellent 87xx series ultar codecs. Naturally, having data stored over two drives means less latency but also more risk.

Remember that Bluetooth offers very little bandwidth 1Mbpswhich isn’t sufficient for any type of PC network.
