The odd niggling aspect of the design is there, but nothing to make you discard it completely. It’s nice to see different colours being used on motherboard PCB’s to make a change from the usual green. So there we have them, the numbers most people will be looking for. So how does the layout of the K7T Pro2 stack up? It’s simple to attach your own fan, but it’s always nice to see these things as standard. The indicators are located right next to the audio and multimedia ports and as well, on the PC-to-PC USB bracket so they can be viewed from the outside of the case.

A closer inspection of the CPU socket reveals something a bit more disturbing. Thanks to The Overclocking Store.

Here we see the extra memory bandwidth of the KTA pulling its weight. The odd niggling aspect of the design is there, but nothing to pro22-u you discard it completely.
Ships with the following: 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. I was a bit sceptical of its position at first, but, in my case at least, it seems to get the ATX connector out of the way very well seeing as though the ATX connector is the most bulky connector you’ll attach to a motherboard and also the most inflexible making a poor connector placement an extra hassle.
MSI also had the foresight to stick down two clear pieces of plastic beneath each of the 2 center socket clips where you attach heatsinks.

It’s the little things all rolled into one that make the MSI stand out for me. I could be wrong however. Well let’s take a look at the chipset specs before we make our way to MSI’s implementation of it.
Click to find out more. Three operating systems, Windows ,si, Windows and Windows XP were installed ms any problems. One of the biggest selling points of this new wave of KTA boards is the increased performance. Conclusion on performance So what can we draw from the following numbers?
Sandra Memory Benchmark 9 x Sandra Memory Bandwidth Benchmark 9 x So there we have them, the numbers most people will be looking for. However they ARE quicker and that’s what we are expecting. The indicators are located right next to the audio and multimedia ports and as well, on the PC-to-PC USB bracket so they can be viewed from the outside of the case. All it can hope to measure accurately is the air temperature in the socket which is quite a big disappointment.
Something like DivX encoding should see a handy increase in encoding speed, knocking a fair few minutes off the time of a usual full length movie encoding. At MHz, the run takes 50 seconds.
So how do we find pro2-k MSI as a whole? When the KT chipset was mso released, it was met with quite a bit of disappointment. SmartKey is also a good value addition to the K7T Pro2 package.
We are rendering the pawns scene here at x resolution. Performance is good and overall the board seems great.
MSI K7 K7T Pro2-U Memory Upgrade – MemoryC
From the diagram, we can also see the VT Southbridge implements AC’97 and MC’97 audio and modem facilities of which the manufacturer of a motherboard using this chip provides the headers and support for.
When VIA first announced their DDR chipset the KT, the whole hardware community was gearing up for quite an intense battle among the chipset makers. This means new motherboard designs using V-MAP family chips are quick and relatively painless to implement. You have to be m7t266 the current memory bandwidth limits on a previous chipset to really see the difference. The plastic is there to protect the motherboards trace lines from mwi damaged when a heatsink is installed.
MSI were kind enough to courier me their latest, not-even-on-the-website, motherboard for review, the K7T Pro2. If you are into media encoding such as MP3 encoding or the creation of DivX movies you’ll be happy with the new speed. I’m very hopeful that a newer revision of the BIOS for the board will extract even more performance and bring things up to speed on this test setup.
It’s certainly striking and with the gold Northbridge heatsink, I think MSI have tried to appeal to those who like to show off their PC’s in the case modding world. Taking a look at the picture of the motherboard and starting at the top, we can see that the ATX connector is to the left of the CPU socket, right in the corner.
