RAID 0 simply amalgamates 2 drives so that they work as a single larger drive. The well-received KTA has been subject to a few superficial changes in its transformation to the present KT chipset. We know that many of our readers are interested in SETI. Heck you never can have too many right! Whilst slightly improving on an already excellent chipset, we feel as if Via’s efforts were not totally convincing.

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. We had a couple of niggles about the layout, the placing of kt33 ATX connector was somewhat strange.

The other major difference, one that MSI seem keen to push on their premier motherboards is the inclusion of Bluetooth wireless connectivity by means of a transceiver and key.

On closer inspection of the individual results, we find that Lobby tests gain the greatest improvement. The range of voltages available for manipulation is one of the broadest seen from MSI. Although packaging is something we usually don’t talk about, it’s obvious that MSI has spent some time to money to make their motherboard boxes look good.

MSI KT3V – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT333 Series

The full title of this motherboard gives you kf333 idea of what to expect. The KT3 Ultra comes packing a total of 4 fan headers, with one automatically taken up by the active Northbridge heatsink.


The clear CMOS jumper is located quite close proximity to one of the fan headers and is really difficult to remove so save yourself some trouble and attach a small piece of tape to it.

Fuzzy Logic is a particular favourite of ours, it safely overclocks your CPU through Windows, thereby eliminating many failed bootups.

If stability is your primary goal then the MSI should certainly be on your shortlist. Click to find out more.

Let’s illustrate our point pictorially. The current BIOS for the board supports the new Thoroughbred core and all voltage adjustments are supported in the setup.

Good yes, but you have mis wonder about the logic behind this.

Even though I have small hands, everytime I removed the videocard my finger would nudge that capacitor and that’s not very comforting. Memory can be tweaked quite extensively too, with the inclusion of the performance-enhancing 1T command.

Often times manufacturers neglect the little things such as this.

Firstly we can see that it took a long time, seconds isn’t quick by any stretch of the imagination. Via, the giant Taiwanese chipset maker, were there jsi the beginning of the Athlon’s life-cycle with the KX We had to manually install the USB 2. We’d hazard a guess that the motherboard platform is irrelevant for this test. AGP voltage can also be increased to 1.


MSI KT3 (Via KT Chipset)

However, we ran the MSI KT3’s result three times, each time the results were within a second of each other, so we can be sure of our numbers. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic.

Log in Don’t have an account? The impressive overclocking options coupled with our new XP processor from AMD ensured that we would be furnished with a reasonable overclock.

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.

Ships with the following: This, in our opinion, is a strange location. The RAID ports are sensibly placed at the bottom left of the board making connectivity simple.

Mei similar story unfolds here. In our eyes, the best has just got slightly better. You’re greeted by a cacophony of buzzers if you connect the heatsink fan to anything other than the designated CPU fan header, we thought all hell had broken loose.
