EPoX 8KTA3 Motherboard Review

Atlanta OC has gotten hold of the EPoX 8KTA3 Motherboard, so head on over and see what they ahd to say about this KT133A based board. here's a snip:

 

"EPoX has definitely released a quality product in the 8KTA3. With the optional RAID setup, this motherboard can really come alive. The definite presence of an overclocker friendly feel gives it the power it needs to overcome the small hurdles that hold it back from being a top choice. I did notice that this motherboard boots into Windows 2000 extremely fast. Granted there is not a ton of files on the drive, it still screams to the desktop and awaits your readiness.

IWill KK266Plus Motherboard Review

Looks like this motherboard has been getting quite a workout lately, but why mess with success? Go see the folks at amdmb.com and see what they thought of the IWill KK266Plus Motherboard. here's a snip:

 

"Overclocking on all Iwill boards is a dream come true for most hardware enthusiasts! Offering every option to be edited in the bios (with the exception of the 100 MHz / 133 MHz jumper), Iwill has made a name for themselves in the overclocking arena. The KK266Plus does not break this tradition. Pushing upwards of a 170 MHz FSB on an underclocked Athlon 1.4 GHz, this easily beats the best I have used before hand. Of course, to get speeds near this, you have to have some kick ass SDRAM, such as Corsair's. Overall I was able to push the Athlon Thunderbird 1.4 GHz to a great 1.65 GHz with air-cooling. Several other motherboards have reached this speed, but not 170 MHz FSBs!"

IWill KK266Plus Motherboard Review

Planet Savage has gotten hold of the IWill KK266Plus Motherboard for your viewing pleasure. here's a snip:

 

"The KT133A chipset is still probably the most popular chipset for Socket A processors right now. It has now matured well and with its usage of normal SDRAM, it made upgrading of people from older SDRAM systems pretty easy. Those coming from a 440BX133 system can still make use of their old memory and other peripherals when they switched to the KT133A and AMD."

MSI 850 Pro2 Motherboard Review

Intel Pentium4... You either love them or hate them. But whichever way you choose to go, there still has to be boards to support them. Enter the MSI 850 Pro2 Motherboard. With most 850 chipset based boards being nearly identical performance-wise, can the MSI board bring something new to the table? Head on over to PC Hardware and find out! here's a snip:

 

"A surprising thing at this motherboard is the RIMM slot which is parallel to the AGP slot. MSI had to use this design to reduce the number of layers. I don't take this as a disadvantage, but the design may seem strange to many people."

Tyan Tiger MP Motherboard Review

With multi-processor Athlon support becoming all the rage nowadays, someone just has to check out the MP boards. accelenation has taken up the gauntlets and reviewed the Tyan Tiger MP Motherboard. here's a snip:

 

"The reason the Tiger MP has me going is because it is the first Dual Athlon board that is truly affordable. At ~$220 online, this board is well within the range of pricing for desktop motherboards. what's more, the Tiger MP hasn't sacrificed very much to get to that price. don't get me wrong, if you want a high-class workstation board, the Thunder K7 is still a better option, but for the average dual processor user, the Tiger MP is much more attractive."

"When the SiS 735 finally was released it turned out to be a really impressive piece of engineering, beating the competition including AMD 760 in most benchmarks. The reliability, stability and performance showed so far, makes the future look bright for this chipset. The fact that it's also a low cost solution puts even more pressure on the competition."
