This doesn’t really change much. That would have been useful for the next Voodoo card but since nVidia now owns 3dfx, oh well. While this is very useful, the more sophisticated solution to a problem would be to use the built on Diagnostic LED system, a group of four lights that are either green or red. But they ain’t nearly sufficiently [H]ard, so their results must be taken with the appropriate grain of salt. But it’s not value at the expense of performance or features.

Front Side Bus adjustments: So i decide to use this pin for my experiments and i find out that MSI reduce the Vcore about 0,12 Volt with this resistor R More than enough for even the most demanding gadget guy.


Now, don’t get me wrong. Very few motherboards have the complete package of available tweak options that the Pro2 has.

There is almost nothing to gripe about with the K7T Pro 2-A. Discuss in our forum …!

[H]ardOCP: MSI K7T Pro Review

After about a week, the highest I could push pto to was MHz, and still retain some semblence of stability. First of all I have to say this is one stable motherboard to use if you’re an overclocker.


Although MSI engineers used some pretty big capacitors for signal filtering that doesn’t affect the space around the socket so installing a big Alpha cooler is really not a problem. With processors and video cards improving every day, it is not too surprising to see that the motherboard market has also sped up their product cycles.

Nearly every feature one can hope for in a motherboard is here.

Microstar K7T Pro2 KT133 Socket-A ATX

Mind you the caps are far enough away from the CPU socket that it won’t interfere with the installation of really big heatsinks like those from Alpha or Global Win. Something I might have been negligent in doing in 7kt past as a few of you have pointed out.

But it’s not value at the expense of performance or features. The first one being that I was unable to get any multiplier above 8.

All green means you’re ready to rock! This should be enough to push the CPU-frequency to the limit! One for mxi the CMOS data and the other for choosing which language Chinese or English you want the diagnostics to be spoken in.

You’ll be hard pressed to find another motherboard from any manufacturers offering this much stuff for j7t little. I suppose it’s not a biggie. If there is one area where the K7T Pro 2-A falls short is memory performance.

All trademarks used are mi of their respective owners. But for those of us striving to achieve [H]ardness the likes of which haven’t been seen since the dawn of time, you’d be best off to save your pennies for a few more days until we see some retail KTA solutions on the shelves.


The other multiplier issue I have is the fact that the lowest multiplier offered is the defualt multiplier. Log in Don’t have an account? And MSI is definitely to be congratulated and thanked for implementing them all. The last thing you want to do is break off a cap while trying to install the cooler.

Nearly everything is controlled by the BIOS. If you compare the rate companies push out pdo products now to that of a year ago, you will be amazed at how much faster it is now. Sure, other websites claim to be pro-overclocker. I don’t want to be limited.

Can we say KTA boys and girls? Site design and front-end production by mike kane.

In the processor market, Intel and AMD release faster chips nearly every month, and in the video card market, NVIDIA has stuck to a 6-month product cycle to make sure they have m7t fastest video card.
