This allows them to be in close proximity to the drives they service. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. Vcore voltage is adjustable in 0.

The major difference being the support for a DDR memory bus. 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.

We were also pleased that the KT3 Ultra was one of only two motherboards in this roundup that properly supported reading temperatures off of the Athlon XP’s thermal diode. Or perhaps, is it just a simple case of “DDR” fever? More of a theoretical test as no-one we know plays at this resolution.

A vivid red greets you as you open the box. Since I tend to switch between a RadeonGeForce 3Ti, and several other video cards several times a week hey its all part of being the Fastest Webmaster my biggest gripe was a little capacitor near the AGP lock.

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.

Really good in fact. Along with the bright red PCB of the actual motherboard is a nice bright red box with pull out container, and hand strap. We see a comprehensive list of features that allow one to experiment with overclocking.

Everything is held inside the case snugly, and with its glossy finish, it’s quite a change from the average bland motherboard box of old. Overclocking The impressive overclocking options coupled with our new XP processor from AMD ensured that we would be furnished with a reasonable overclock.

If stability ktt3 your primary goal then the MSI should certainly be on your shortlist. The might of the XP is certainly evident here.

Again, at first glance, the official support for DDR seems a shade academic. The close-knit performance from various motherboard manufacturers highlighted the maturity of the chipset, rarely did we see a poor motherboard.

The integrated USB 1. DDR theoretically offer 2. Ships with the following: About Us Employment Privacy Policy. The main IDE ports, along with the floppy port are located sensibly ulrta the right of mwi board.

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.

Memory can be tweaked quite extensively too, with the inclusion of the performance-enhancing 1T command. We had a couple of niggles about the layout, the placing of the ATX connector was somewhat strange.


VIA KT333 Motherboard Roundup – June 2002

Firstly let’s have a look at the KT chipset in a little more detail. Smi first thing that is clearly evident here is the the evolutionary nature of the KT chipset. Naturally, having data stored over two drives means less latency but also more risk.

This is what is supposed to happen with a SCSI hard drive setup and it actually works pretty well ultga. We’re seeing a continuing trend here, one that shows that running asynchronously offers a small benefit. AMD have been having a rather good time of late. However, the results are quantifiably different. One pleasant suprise for us is the estimated price.

Let’s have a look at how our protagonists got on when set to calculate Pi to 10 million places. In our eyes, the best has just got slightly better. Any reduction in time would be more than welcome. We’ve found this combination to be the most stable in our stress tests.
