Under XP is fine. Standard disk drives Number of Partitions: Physical installation of the board was a cinch. If you are a heavy gamer, it’s a nice upgrade. Sandra Memory Benchmark 9 x Sandra Memory Bandwidth Benchmark 9 x So there we have them, the numbers most people will be looking for.

I know nothing works if you haven’t installed the drivers.

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. Windows 98, while having little testing on this motherboard, seems to be OK. What a waste in my opinion. I still have the feeling that the solution for your problem will be somewhere in the settings Just gets frustrating resetting it constantly.

This is in contrast to the KG7-RAID and AMD chipset where manual tweaking of the chipset settings is essential to make the board perform well and slund high performance defaults setting is provided. V-MAP chips are the same size and have the same pin compatible layout that makes this possible. The inclusion of things like USB2.

Click to find out more. The sound files would not play until that was done. From the diagram, we can also see the Sojnd 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. It’s easier to visualise this using a diagram, so take a quick peek at the following VIA provided layouts of the chipset.


K7T Pro (MS) – No Sound

BSOD’s do occur however and the audio stops sometimes. Notice that SSE benchmarks are performed in this test. I think a VapoChill or any large heatsink would fit fine and the board provides the 4 mounting holes for a Swiftech MC heatsink.

But what do we get over the KT? There is no conventional thermistor in the socket to measure CPU temperature.

The capacitor placement fouls the ability of the retention mechanism to work well and you have to resort to poking at the lever with something in an attempt to make it budge. 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.

K7t66 XP is fine. Standard monitor types Status: Standard floppy disk controllers PNP Service: I could be wrong however. Apart from that we see nothing unusual here.


Of course, the benchmarking crowd will love it. Even if they were wrong that would not expain why the windows sounds don’t come over speakers. Standard Game Port Manufacturer: All it can hope to measure accurately is the air temperature in the socket which is quite a k72t66 disappointment. As you can see, the numbers fall exactly in line with the 1.

If I have to reboot or need to shut down, when it comes up it k7f266 gone to 16 colors and tells me there is something wrong with my adaptor. Thanks to The Overclocking Store. Today I did notice that there was some sound coming through the speaker real faint at least I think it was sound.

If you do not have a sound card installed, you must install one before you can listen to audio in a digital media file. It may be k7t66 component in my setup, it may be a BIOS setting tweaked wrongly but I’m sure more memory performance is there to be unlocked.
