The Final Version of KT? Instead, only multipliers higher than the default multiplier of your chip were selectable, which would be a problem when trying to lower the multiplier of your chip in order to raise the FSB.

You can choose speeds between MHz and MHz now. This could be due to a BIOS that is still beta, but it’s hard to tell until the final version is available. Log in Don’t have an account?
The KTA was only released about a month ago, but this market is already heating up. MSI always produces high quality motherboard solutions, and they are now directly competing mwi the likes of ABIT and ASUS when it comes to features, especially overclocking and tweaking features.
For the Limited Edition boards, MSI also includes a set of new manuals with more information on the board, as well as some new software. Of course, the big question is, “is this board as solid as its older brother?
For starters, AMD processors are quite good for overclocking and relatively inexpensive. Although performance and overclocking results were not the best here, MSI does continue to deliver high quality and very stable products to hardware enthusiasts.
Most of the recent AMD Socket-A motherboards have included the hardware mechanism k7f changing the multiplier ratio settings of AMD processors, so this can be done easily. Although they don’t block the PCI slots, the connectors may be too close to the bottom of the case when the board is installed, which might prevent the IDE cables from reaching the hard drive bays.
Once the two PCs are physically connecting, installing the software is easy and you end up with a USB network between the two machines. However, the chipset will only allow you k7h run your memory synchronously with the FSB gurbo you set the frequency to MHz or higher. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Once again, it is capable of providing basic sound for normal users, but for anything more, you really should go with a hardware-based PCI sound card.
MSI has stated that a new BIOS would solve the problem, but we have yet to receive it, so make sure you check up on this before purchasing if it affects you.

The only problem we ran into with the board was stability, which was not particularly bad, but not up to par with the standard K7T Turbo-R. It will be interesting to see if those values work and whether the board would will accept the new Palomino core Athlon’s.
It seems that motherboard manufacturers are putting forth a lot of effort in order to capture more marketshare. One thing to watch out for is that the original engineering sample we received did not support the full range of CPU clock multipliers 5 to Of course the board comes with a slightly higher price tag, but if you want the absolute best KTA product from MSI, this is a board you can’t miss.
More importantly, however, several settings in the BIOS also caught our attention. The Limited Edition crashed twice in 24 hours of stress testing compared to none in 48 hours for the standard board. We also noticed multiplier values between 13 and 15 are now available, something that no other KTA board can do to this point.
