ECS K7S5A Motherboard Review

When the SiS735 chipset first bacame known, it raised quite a stir in the overclocking community. These boards are now being produced for use by the Power Users, but are they as good in reality as they were in pre-production? accelenation takes a look at the ECS K7S5A Motherboard which uses this famed chipset. So go check it out! here's a snip:

 

"ECS' philosophy is to design stable, simple motherboards for the masses. Historically, none of ECS' boards have been great for overclocking. However, the selling point is that their boards sell for really low prices without compensating stability or performance.

EPoX EP-8KHA Motherboard Review

Active Hardware has taken a look at the EPoX EP-8KHA Motherboard which is based on the KT133A chipset. here's a snip:

 

"Following shortly after its introduction of the KT133A, VIA released the KT266 chipset. When it hit the market, its improved performance and versatility over the KT133A made it an easy choice for inclusion in EPoX's EP-8KHA motherboard. At this point, EPoX already has an established reputation for designing high-performance products geared for the Overclocking crowd. With the EP-8KHA, they seem intent on maintaining that reputation by offering a mainboard that's replete with features."

IWill KK266 Plus Motherboard Reviews

Well, the IWill KK266 Plus board has been getting an awful lot of press, so I thought I'd go ahead and post several sites who have this board on disply for your perusal:

 

t-break - Snip:
"The Iwill KK266 was a pretty good motherboard and instantly turned us into Iwill fans. Where other motherboard manufacturers were cutting corners, Iwill offered everything- from performance and features to overclocking and support- and wrapped everything in a package that looked mega cool. And thus, we were quite eager to try the KK266+ which is a tweaked up version of the original."

 

Accelenation - Snip:
"It is obvious with the release of the KK266Plus that Iwill is not content to be second best. What they've done is added a few new features, tried to fix some shortcomings, and generally make an already good board even better. The KK266Plus isn't without its problems though. Does it have enough to move ahead of the 8KTA3Pro? let's see."

 

Overclockers New Zealand ("R" version) - Snip:
"Well, well, despite the lack of active cooling of the north bridge, Iwill did very well with its FSB overclocking, scoring a stable 166Mhz operation. Beyond that, the machine becomes unstable. This might due to the OEM ram I have in the machine also the HIGH PCI bus of more than 41.5 Mhz. At that particular frequency, most of the PCI device would stop working, especially if you have network cards installed. However, I do not recommend running your FSB greater than 160 as the PCI is just way off its original speed of 33 Mhz. Many people reported loss of data or damaged HD due to high PCI bus speed."

Abit KT7E Motherboard Review

The Abit KT7E board has been around for a bit now, but not too many folks have taken a good look at it. Probably because it was labeled as a Budget Board right from the beginning. Overclocked Cafe takes a look at it in their latest review. here's a snip:

 

"For a budget motherboard it pounds out solid non-budget motherboard numbers. For those with 200MHz FSB AMD's looking for a motherboard that will give them a bit more life out of their processor and SDRAM, it would be an excellent choice. Anyone looking to build a solid budget system, the KT7E becomes another excellent choice, it's bare bones approach makes it affordable, couple that with a Duron and an MX based video card, and you are looking at a complete system at a very reasonable price."

Acorp 7KTA1 Motherboard Review

Mr PC Pro takes a look at the Acorp 7KTA1 Motherboard which is based on the VIA KT133A chipset. it's a low-cost board that has some overclocking abilities that the site takes a look at. here's a snip:

 

"You can manipulate the "Clock by Slight Adjust" number to a number ranging from 133-166, and 100-132MHz if you are using a 100MHz FSB Athlon or Duron. The best I was able to do was 142MHz. I did hit 145Mhz, but 3DMark 2001 would crash in about a minute. So a 9MHz boost isn't what I call a super overclock, but you will still see some benefit."

"If you're looking for a fully-loaded motherboard with built-in 3D 6-channel audio and RAID support, the DFI WT70-EC is not for you. But if you're looking for a solid board to help you get started with the Pentium 4 platform, this board is a good choice--especially for its price!"
