BSOD’s do occur however and the audio stops sometimes. KT has been soundly trounced by AMD in the performance stakes. Applications that shift a lot of data between main memory and the CPU will be the obvious benefactors with the KTA. Click to find out more. Well let’s take a look at the chipset specs before we make our way to MSI’s implementation of it. We’ll be looking to add a Flask encoding run to future reviews if possible to illustrate the performance increases across a new chipset or CPU.

At MHz, the run takes 50 seconds.

At any rate, it is so far from being slow! Applications that shift a lot of data between main memory and the CPU will be the obvious benefactors with msu KTA.

KTA attempts to redress the balance with much increased memory bandwidth. I must point out that it has been a real struggle to get performance out of the MSI board. SmartKey is also a good value addition to the K7T Pro2 package. Introduction MSI were kind enough to courier me their latest, not-even-on-the-website, motherboard for review, the K7T Pro2.


With 3DMark testing overall CPU, memory and graphics performance and Sandra providing the synthetic numbers, we have pretty much all bases covered. I know quite a few reviews of motherboards are done outside of a case in the confines of a testing area.

The manual makes not reference to the procedure to 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. Be the first to review this item. I must stress that the layout of motherboard is pure personal taste and some problem item in one case might be perfect in another.

This is in contrast to the KG7-RAID and AMD chipset where manual tweaking of the chipset settings is essential to make the board perform well and no high performance defaults setting is provided.

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? I’d have preferred a less fancy actively cooled heatsink to the gold coloured passive heatsink provided.

MSI K7T266 Pro2-A, Socket A, AMD (MS-6380E-040) Motherboard

Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. There was a problem completing your request. If you are into media encoding such as MP3 encoding or the creation of DivX movies you’ll be happy with the new speed. It’s simple to attach your own fan, but it’s always nice to see these things as standard. Item is in your Cart.


I think a VapoChill or any large heatsink would fit fine and the board provides the 4 mounting holes for a Swiftech MC heatsink.

Sandra Memory Benchmark 9 x Sandra Memory Bandwidth Benchmark 9 x So there we have them, pdo2-a numbers most people will be looking for. A bad layout for me can be the prl2-a between getting and ignoring a new motherboard, regardless of what features or performance it offers.

A closer inspection of the CPU socket reveals something a bit more disturbing. POV-Ray streams plenty of data from main memory to the CPU and back to perform its intensive calculations required to render our test scene.

This is the first motherboard directly supporting USB 2. Terms and conditions apply. Let’s start with Sandra first off: Under XP is fine. Write a customer review.
