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. They have always focused on making sure their products are of the highest quality and stability, just as we found with the K7T Turbo. However, keep in mind that this is a pre-production board, so the shipping version may be slightly different. It was new, it was hyped, but the “rusty-ol'” BX chipset, which should have been history by the time of the i debut, still performed better.. PC2PC is a lot more “practical” though.

We will get back to all this, but before that, please take the time and allow us to introduce the newest guest in our humble lab drum rolling in a distance. In keeping with those themes, the KTA chipset serve as a very affordable and mature solution for everyone.
I guess doing it seriously in volume does make a difference. However, keep in mind that this is a pre-production board, so the shipping version may be slightly different. We were a bit unhappy not to see any ISA slots.
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.

OK-OK, that should be no problem, we lowered our setting to get the needed results. The K7T Turbo-R excelled in all these areas, if you don’t believe us, check out the diagram below.
Of course, most of the big hardware sites already had their review online. Extended usage and day long stress tests didn’t cause the slightest hickups, our CPU ran flawlessly even at 60 degrees C.
The voltage regulator still overvolted the CPU no matter what we kt, but since we were overclocking anyway, this actually came in handy: It all began with the power cable connector.
Not all is perfect, however. So, take the RAM out first, right? But chipwet fact, MSI is a lot more. Instead of measuring Quake3 FPS results, which tell us a lot about our video card, we voted for Sandra.
Nevertheless, this is a good start. They have always focused on making sure their products are of the highest quality and stability, just as we found with the K7T Turbo. We wouldn’t be very suprised: We thank both companies for that. We could only verify this up to MHz our CPU maxed out at that speed, but the board was rock stable. Not the strongest point of this particular model.

It’s a general tendency that Taiwanese manufacturers are leaving the “continent” and setting up branch offices in other regions, we could already observe this with Iwill, so we needn’t go very far for examples.
The K7T Turbo chippset based closely on the K7T Pro2 in terms of layout, but that board did not feature an onboard RAID option, so there were some significant changes made to the south side of the board, while the north part remains identical.
Freezing the system at MHz was unacceptable though. Performance of the board was a little bit below average, but that’s not the main focus of MSI.
Any guesses so far for the four say that very fast 10 times: It seems that motherboard manufacturers are putting forth a lot of effort in order to capture more marketshare. cchipset
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. Well, it wasn’t available.
For starters, AMD processors are quite good for overclocking and relatively inexpensive.
