Backwardly compatible with USB 1. Thankfully, we have more than enough room around the CPU socket to mount large coolers. Further adjustments are available for the AGP slot. The KT is slightly faster and should come-to-market at about the same price. Put simply, it calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible. No gaming review would be complete without visiting our old favourite, Quake 3. Once rebooted it guesses a decent, overclocked speed, quite clever really.

If you’re looking for a Socket A motherboard to replace one from an older platform, or are seeking one that will give you maximal performance, then the MSI should most definitely make it onto your shortlist.

Support from most major motherboard manufacturers was quickly garnered, a partnership that has successfully lasted until the present day. RAID 1 backs-up the data on one drive and mirrors it on the redundant drive, far more useful for data safety.

Let’s have a look at how our protagonists got on when set to calculate Pi to 10 million places. A vivid red greets you as you open the box. Joined Jun Posts The rather stylish Northbridge heatsink dominates the middle half of ktt3 board. The black borders are cropped to save unnecessary encoding time. A similar story unfolds here. Conclusion The first thing that is clearly evident here is the the evolutionary nature of the KT chipset.

Sound Problem for KT3 Ultra (MSE Ver )

I use a CNR modem, but only for faxing it works fine and does not effect the sound. We removed the heatsink and were glad to see MSI had the care and attention to use thermal paste as a conduit between the Northbridge and heatsink.

Other benchmarks from the same demo showed a lesser variance in results. Find More Posts by dnsme. Memory can be tweaked quite extensively too, with the inclusion of the performance-enhancing 1T command.

We’d hazard a guess that the motherboard platform is irrelevant for this test. AMD have been having a rather good time of late. So I got myself a KT3 Ultra.

Bios duty is handled by AMI, version 3. The close-knit performance from various motherboard manufacturers highlighted the maturity of the chipset, rarely did we see a poor motherboard. Other system processes take their toll when running memory at DDR, such that it can’t satiate the Athlon’s memory desire.

We believe the fact that there is a difference is testament to the slightly increased memory throughput available to the Athlon at DDR We had a couple of niggles about the layout, the placing of the ATX connector was somewhat strange.

The board is essentially jumper-free with only the ,t3 clear CMOS jumper making an appearance behind the third fan header. We’re using Xmpeg 2. Results 1 to 7 of 7. One interesting inclusion that we’ve not seen before is support, albeit limited, for bluetooth wireless communication.

MSI KT3 Ultra-ARU – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT Overview – CNET

Thanks for trying to help. Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively and an average score was taken. Subjective listening revealed that whilst not on a par with Nforce’s excellent APU, the on-board solution was more than adequate for general Windows duty, we’d say it was on a par with C-Media’s excellent 87xx series of codecs. The difference from synchronous to asynchronous modes is around marks, although only a nominal 1.

We tried to engineer a situation where stability would be compromised.


The time is almost 2 seconds faster than when memory is run at FSB. However, the results are quantifiably different. We’ve seen that running RAM asynchronously at FSB improves theoretical performance, let’s see how this translated to real-world applications and benchmarks.

The full title of this motherboard gives ultrra an idea of what to expect. More of a theoretical test as no-one we know plays at this resolution.
