The manual makes not reference to the procedure to enable a working motherboard if the SmartKey is lost you can use a new SmartKey as long as you provide the correct password and the password is then copied to the new SmartKey and you enter the wrong password 3 times, locking the BIOS and the system completely. The RAID connectors are close to the bottom right and run 90 degrees to the regular connectors. The software integrates with the screensaver to provide extra security. There are a total of 6 USB 1. KT has been soundly trounced by AMD in the performance stakes. MSI were kind enough to courier me their latest, not-even-on-the-website, motherboard for review, the K7T Pro2. Performance is good and overall the board seems great.

At any rate, it is so far from being slow! What was the best tech product of ? KT has been soundly trounced by AMD in the performance stakes.

Don’t rely too much on your own manual tweaking on the MSI to extract all the performance. As you can see, the numbers fall exactly in line with the 1. Three operating systems, Windows 98, Windows and Windows XP were installed without any problems. The inclusion of things like USB2.

So what can we draw from the following numbers? Physical installation of the board was a cinch. I always like to take a look at the layout of the motherboards that pass through my system. Of course, the benchmarking crowd will love it.

This is the first motherboard directly supporting USB 2. It also seems like the BIOS setup is critical. The numbers in this benchmark fall right into line with the Reference numbers provided with Sandra in this new version. A bad layout for me can be the difference between getting and ignoring a new motherboard, regardless of what features or performance it offers. So how does the layout of the K7T Pro2 stack up?

If the password k7t2666 match up, the board refuses to boot. In this case, moving from the KT to the new A version should really be as easy as dropping the new chipset into the place of the old. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. Here we see the extra memory bandwidth of the KTA pulling its weight.

So there we have them, the numbers most people will be looking for. The floppy connector is also grouped here which is where it should be to lessen the cable length required over a bottom edge placement. The immense room around the socket will please users of waterblocks, Swiftech’s and VapoChill units. Fast forwarding about 9 months; nForce motherboards are nowhere to be seen and we now have the KTA chipset, a new and improved version of the older KT It’s simple to attach your own fan, but it’s always nice to see these things as standard.


Thumbs up to MSI and if they can sort out the small issues in a later revision, they can’t fail to succeed with this board. Sandra Memory Benchmark 9 x Sandra Memory Bandwidth Benchmark 9 x So there we have them, the numbers most people will be looking for. Would it totally sweep me off my feet and carry me into a glorious world of high overclockability where DDR is the only way to go?

The notable additions include the USB 2. Is it the same again, not quick, hard to implement etc and have MSI done a good job with the board? 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 k7t2666 of the case.

But what do we get over the KT? It’s a nice looking touch, but won’t please the overclockers looking to rpo K7T Pro2 as their next choice. However, the extremely nice guys over at MSI were happy to work with us to try and solve our problems and a BIOS flash is finally giving us some respectable numbers.

Considering this, here’s the formal spec for the chipset.
