Let’s have a look at the board and its specification. RAID 1 backs-up the data on one drive and mirrors it on the redundant drive, far more useful for data safety. More of a theoretical test as no-one we know plays at this resolution. Being multiplier-locked, we resorted to raising the FSB one Mhz per time. The inclusion of ATA support is another future-proof move that should pay dividends as soon as hard drives catch up. Other benchmarks from the same demo showed a lesser variance in results.

Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively and an average score was taken. Although not directly in the way, it can be a nuisance if, like us, you change your AGP cards often. Even with today’s powerful processors, we still have to hsb a considerable time before a ‘DVD-rip’ is complete. We tried our utmost to engineer a situation were we could make the board crash. Naturally, having data stored over two drives jltra less latency but also more risk. FSB selection is flexible too, ranging from – Mhz in 1Mhz increments, something which the overclocking and tweaking community will be grateful for.

If you have a heatsink which requires the use of a flat head screw driver, and that kind of case it is just about impossible to properly install the heatsink. I utra have a printer and scanner connected to the rear USB 1. We’ll start of with Sisoft Sandra.

Via, the giant Taiwanese chipset maker, were there at the beginning of the Athlon’s life-cycle with the KX The differences are only significant in benchmarking terms, we challenge anybody to tell the visual difference between utra fps respectively.

The RAID ports are sensibly placed at the bottom left of the board making connectivity simple. Firstly, let’s have a look at Fastest. The impressive overclocking options coupled with our new XP processor from AMD ensured that we would be furnished with a reasonable overclock.

The silver North bridge fan adds an element of class to the package. Let’s also have a look at what happens if we disable the enhanced optimisations that are automatically applied to the Sisoft Sandra memory benchmark.

DVD encoding is another popular pastime of our readers. You’re given the option of either RAID 0 or 1. The weight of the unopened box is enough to inform you of that. Bios duty is handled by AMI, version 3. To measure the limitation of our board, we used a factory-unlocked 1. Log in Don’t have an account?


Fortunately, our efforts were handled impeccably by the KT3, not a single crash in over 16 hours of running Prime95 torture test and SETI concurrently.

What was the best tech product of ? The black borders are cropped to save unnecessary encoding time.

Why you should need it at boot time unless you are trying to boot from it? On closer inspection of the individual results, we find that Lobby tests gain the greatest improvement. With an integrated LAN controller in the southbridge I often wonder why manufacturers don’t use take advantage of it more. At first glance, the numbers look disarmingly similar. The greater memory throughput available allows the Athlon to truly flex its muscles in this test.

Instead you have to use the plus and minus keys to scroll through a list of FSB settings from – MHz, which is a tad irritating. This item doesn’t belong on this page. Privacy policy uwb Terms of Use. This codec offers genuine improvements over the standard AC97 that ships with most motherboards. Anyway, on to the results.
