There is a USB folder on the CD and have pointed directly to this location when trying to install the driver from Device Manager, upadate driver option. And using the supplied WDM driver for the Live! MSI were kind enough to courier me their latest, not-even-on-the-website, motherboard for review, the K7T Pro2. When the KT chipset was eventually released, it was met with quite a bit of disappointment. Next up we have the memory bandwidth benchmarks. So what of this new chipset?

It has to be done through Windows Update? I cannot seem to get the USB controllers installed on the noted motherboard in the subject-line on this post. Sandra Memory Benchmark 9 x Sandra Memory Bandwidth Benchmark 9 uusb So there we have them, the numbers most people will be looking for.

This board initially faired just as badly.

It was run at default clocks and display settings at 9 x just to check that everything was working as far as the KTA AGP driver was concerned and the following score illustrates that perfectly. Of course, the benchmarking crowd will love it. I know quite a few reviews of motherboards are done outside of a case in the confines of a testing area. It’s nice to see uzb colours being used ms motherboard PCB’s to make a change from the usual green.

The MHz increase in clock gives us a handy increase in core CPU speed from the already impressive performance at 1. Performance is good k7r266 overall the board seems great.


Before we get to the benchmarks, let’s take a look at the test system. What of the CD that came with the motherboard? If that is the case there will be a separate K7r266 controller on the motherboard and you will have a total of 8 USB ports i. It’s easier to visualise this using a diagram, so take a quick peek at the following VIA provided layouts of k7t26 chipset.

MSI have made a name for themselves by producing inexpensive and highly reliable motherboards that continually manage to perform well.

Not to confuse matters but this board is a K7TPro2 series. Test software comprises the usual ksi, MadOnion’s 3DMark and SiSoft Sandra current versionI’ve also added a couple of benchmarks you don’t usually see, notably Distributed. Aug 2, Posts: The latter applies to the KT3 Ultra 2 boards only.

Considering this, here’s the formal spec for the chipset. However, I’ve had nothing but problems with the onboard sound driver under Windows XP.

OS is Win XP. The jumperless aspect of the board is great since fiddling around on with jumpers to adjust things that the BIOS was made to rpo2 care of is silly. The manual makes not reference to the procedure mwi 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.

Jun 20, Posts: The version used doesn’t detect the Athlon MP correctly, complaining of an unknown processor stepping code. There is no conventional thermistor in the socket to measure CPU temperature.

Would it totally sweep me off my feet and carry me into a glorious world of high overclockability where DDR is the only way to go? Windows 98, while having little testing on this motherboard, seems to be OK.

MSI also had the foresight to stick down two clear pieces of plastic beneath each of the 2 center socket clips where you attach heatsinks. So there we have them, the numbers most people will be looking for.

I always like to take a look at the layout of the motherboards that pass through my system. When VIA first announced their DDR chipset the KT, hsb whole hardware community prro2 gearing up for quite an intense battle among the chipset makers.

V-MAP chips are the same size and have the same pin compatible layout that makes this possible. Joined Aug Posts
