They can cause problems if they are on the same IRQ as the sound chip. The time now is How can I get Mandrake to recognize the raid mirror? A small capacitor flanks the AGP port. Let’s have a look at xx32 Quality, a resolution that has some real-life meaning.

Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth. Again, at first glance, the official support for DDR seems a shade academic.

On closer inspection of the individual results, we find that Lobby tests gain the greatest improvement. The difference from synchronous to asynchronous modes is around marks, although only a nominal 1.

MSI KT3 Ultra2 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT333 Series

USA Age 73 Posts Not only do you have to navigate the ATX connector across the CPU cooler, it also becomes difficult to reach and unclip when removing the motherboard, especially if you use a large cooler.

Again, running asynchronously offers a benefit. Anyway, it’s ok for me to remove the modem, I never use it. The first thing that is clearly evident here is the the evolutionary nature of the KT chipset. We’re seeing a continuing trend here, one that shows that running asynchronously offers a small benefit. Layout Starting at the top and working our way down, we see the ATX power connector is located at the at the top left of the board. MSI, historically, have not paid too much attention to the overclocking community.


All benchmarks were conducted at xx32 85Hz with vertical sync disabled. We had to manually install the USB 2. We’d hoped the KT chipset would have support for this. We used the publicly available demo so that you could compare results if need be.

The KT is slightly faster and should come-to-market at about the same price. What PCI cards are fitted to your computer? Thanks for trying to help.

Our recurring theme seems to be present here. Once rebooted it guesses a decent, overclocked speed, quite clever really.

I’m trying to set Raid 1 with the board and install Mandrake 9. Other benchmarks from the same demo showed a lesser variance in results. We’ve seen that running RAM asynchronously at FSB improves theoretical performance, let’s see how this translated to real-world applications and benchmarks.

Further adjustments are available for the AGP slot. The rather stylish Northbridge heatsink dominates the middle half of the board. We tried the test at different CPU speeds and found the boards tied for performance. A new addition to our benchmarking-suite is Pifast.


We removed the heatsink and were glad to see MSI had the care and attention to use thermal paste as a conduit between the Northbridge and heatsink. We tried our utmost to engineer a situation were we could soound the board crash. But I am having a problem with its AC97 onboard sound.

They can cause problems if they are on the same IRQ as the sound chip. Fortunately, our efforts were handled impeccably by the KT3, not a single crash in over 16 hours of running Prime95 torture test and SETI concurrently.

Still, seconds is the fastest time we’ve ever seen for a CPU at default speeds. The rather suprising result is from memory running asynchronously ultr FSB.

Thank you all very much for helping.
