Although the highest FSB we have successfully achieved on the KTA is MHz, the added values above should provide more headroom for extreme overclockers. The Final Version of KT? The Limited Edition crashed twice in 24 hours of stress testing compared to none in 48 hours for the standard board. 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.

It seems that k7f manufacturers are putting forth a lot of effort in order to capture more marketshare. Although the highest FSB we have successfully achieved on the KTA is MHz, the added values above should provide more headroom for extreme overclockers.
The Final Version of KT? In general, the Limited Edition board is an enhanced version of the K7T Turbo-R, with more features and even higher quality construction.

Over the past week we have looked at the solutions from ABIT and EPoXand we concluded that they are both very impressive, each with their own unique features, and both deliver decent performance and stability. The Final Version of KT? Performance of the board was a little bit below average, but that’s not the main focus of MSI.
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.

VIA KT133A Motherboard Roundup – June 2001
Although performance and overclocking results were not the best here, MSI does continue to deliver high quality and very stable mi to hardware enthusiasts. MSI always produces high quality motherboard solutions, and they are now directly competing with the likes of ABIT and ASUS when it comes to features, especially overclocking and tweaking features.
In keeping with those themes, the KTA chipset serve as a very affordable and mature solution for everyone. There are several reasons why the KTA market is so popular these days.
MSI K7T Turbo, Sockel 462/A Motherboard
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. Most of the recent AMD Socket-A motherboards have included the hardware mechanism for changing the multiplier ratio settings of AMD processors, so this can be done easily.

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 Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
We were lucky enough to receive a pre-production sample of the K7T Turbo from MSI for evaluation purposes, and it’s time to see how it compares with other KTA motherboards. Introduction The KTA was only released about a month ago, but this market is already heating up. The KTA was only released about a month ago, i7t this market is already heating rurbo.
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. However, the chipset will only allow you to run your memory synchronously with the FSB if you set the frequency to MHz or higher. For starters, AMD processors are quite good for overclocking and relatively inexpensive. It will be interesting to see if those values work and whether the board would will accept the new Palomino core Athlon’s.

The new splash screen seen during boot up. We also noticed multiplier values between 13 and 15 are now available, something that no other KTA board can do to this point.
