Fortunately, those massive capacitors are far enough away that they shouldn’t pose a problem for any reasonably sized heatsink, although extremely large ones could have some trouble. They followed that up with the K7 Pro , also based on the AMD chipset, that offerred a number of features over the Fester reference design they used for their original design. Those caps made the installation of the CPU cooler a bit difficult. Also the motherboard box turns into a calendar! One for clearing the CMOS data and the other for choosing which language Chinese or English you want the diagnostics to be spoken in.

This question is for testing whether you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. Msu everything is controlled by the BIOS. UDMA 66 is supported as well. Built in ATA support is a great feature to have, especially if you don’t want to purchase a separate controller card.

This motherhboard shows the MSI desire to improve their products. Besides the ability to adjust bus speed and multiplier, there is also voltage adjustments of up to 1.

This single device makes finding and solving initial system problems k7y useful. That would have been useful for the next Voodoo card but since nVidia now owns 3dfx, oh well. Keep in mind that that amount of voltage regulation might not be enough for those wanting to push their front-side bus above MHz.

This is because the KT chipset is not stable at anything over Mhz.


MSI K7T Turbo, Sockel 462/A Motherboard

All green means you’re ready to rock! Good and Bad This content was originally featured on Amdmb. First of all I have to say this is one stable motherboard k7 use if you’re an overclocker. Nearly every feature one can hope for in a motherboard is here. This system allows for a moderate amount of interpretation by the end user for troubleshooting a motherboard problem.

The patterns of green and red can be checked with an included information table to determine the problem. For instance, the 4 LED lights might arrange in a configuration to tell the user by referencing the manual that the problem with the boot process is with the memory, and then the user can go from there by testing to see if the memory is in the wrong slot, or not seated correctly, etc. K7g can view this as a good way to keep your name in front of your users or MSI marketing going overboard.

There is almost nothing mssi gripe about with the K7T Pro 2-A. The South Bridge allows the motherboards manufacturers to uses 6 PCI slots which MSI opted to do and gives them various hardware monitoring capabilities. The board is a pleasure to work with. What does this motherboard offer to overclockers, or performance gurus? One of the first things that jumps out when you look at the K7T Pro is the positioning of the KT’s North Bridge – it’s rotated 45 degrees relative to the edges of the board.


If that can’t make your TBird or Duron stable, nothing will. 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. The only thing I can think of is moving those big caps further away from the CPU socket but that is minor.


Microstar really seems to be on a roll lately. Those of you with ISA modems or sound cards are going to have to bite the bullet soon and get those peripherals in PCI format.

The package is pretty complete. The box turns into a calendar!

MSI K7T Pro KT133 Motherboard Review

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone. However, with the recent announcements and moves made by AMD, many of those boards will lost their overclocking advantage, and will again be put on equal grounds with all other previously released motherboard, including the MSI K7T Pro.

This is much better than the non-shared AMR slots that we saw on the first boards with such a slot and “wasted” PCB space that could potentially be alotted to an additional PCI slot.

Also the motherboard box turns into a calendar! MSI even went so far as making the box the motherboard came in useful. The most important being multiplier changing and Core tweak.
