One detraction is that the bluetooth connection is shared with one of the USB 2. We wouldn’t recommend running RAID 0 for important data as there is no redundancy. The close-knit performance from various motherboard manufacturers highlighted the maturity of the chipset, rarely did we see a poor motherboard. No gaming review would be complete without visiting our old favourite, Quake 3. Firstly let’s have a look at the KT chipset in a little more detail. The inclusion of ATA support is another future-proof move that should pay dividends as soon as hard drives catch up.

The MSI’s better msk optimisations at FSB put it ahead of the Asus by just over a second, we had expected to see such a result after seeing the results of the non-enhanced memory benchmark. One interesting inclusion that we’ve not seen before is support, albeit limited, for bluetooth wireless communication.

Interestingly, on closer inspection of the board, we see markings msj indicate FSB CPU operation selectable by jumper. DDR theoretically offer 2. MSI has historically been rather conservative in their performance manipulation options, something that appears to have changed somewhat with the KT3.

Unfortunately, this seems reserved for mt3 KTA. In our eyes, the best has just got slightly better. Let’s have a look at the board and its specification. For those of you who crunch SETI as a pastime, even a second decrease in times would be most welcome. The board is essentially jumper-free with only the ubiquitous clear CMOS jumper making an appearance behind the third fan header.

Let’s illustrate our point pictorially. The full title of this motherboard gives you an idea of what to expect. This allows them to be in close proximity ksi the drives they service.

The main IDE ports, along with the floppy port are located sensibly to the right of the board. Click to find out more. The major difference being the support for a DDR memory bus.

The silver North bridge fan adds an element of class to the package. 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.

Backwardly compatible with USB 1. Three Kings is the DVD of choice, it’s mixture of action and dialogue make it mssi excellent benchmarking test.

Anyway, on to the results. Put simply, it calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible. RAID mis simply amalgamates 2 drives so that they work as a single larger drive. A similar story unfolds here. We can look back to the Sisoft Sandra unenhanced memory benchmarks for an explanation of the results. The might of the XP is certainly evident here.


Any reduction in time would be more than welcome. However, the results are quantifiably different. We ran at xx32 Normal preferences, sound was disabled.

The greater memory throughput available allows the Athlon to truly flex its muscles in this test. Features and Installation The extensive specification list informs you that this board is jam-packed with features. Although not directly in the way, it can be a nuisance if, like us, you change your AGP cards often.

This codec offers genuine improvements over the standard AC97 that ships with most motherboards.

We’ll next turn our attention to another number-crunching activity.
