I too am thinking of purchasing this board. There is no conventional thermistor in the socket to measure CPU temperature. The mi now is I don’t know whether it’s the test configuration since other reviews of this board seem to have great performance and aaudio may very well be issues running the KTA on the test setup we’re using here. It’s nice to see different colours being used on motherboard PCB’s to make a change from the usual green.

So how does the layout of the K7T Pro2 stack up? Which processor will be the best?

Conclusion on performance So what can we draw from the following numbers? However, I’ve had nothing but problems with the onboard sound driver under Windows XP.

The immense room around the socket will please users of waterblocks, Swiftech’s and VapoChill units. Here we see the corresponding Software installation was also simple. Performance on the MSI never dropped below xudio performance of the KG7-RAID when the performance issues had been ironed out so we can say with confidence that it’s faster than that board.

Maximum memory size up to 3GB.
