Rizenet has posted a review on the IWill KD266 Motherboard, but don't be confused by the model number. It does not work off the KT266 chipset, but one from Ali. here's a snip:

"The KD266 from Iwill is a rather unique motherboard, at least in regards of the chipset it uses, the ALi M1649. If you go to the ALi website you won't even find that chipset listed, but you will find the KD266 listed as an ALiMAGIK motherboard. that's right, the M1649 is nothing but a ALiMAGIK without DDR-RAM support. Why would anyone sell a DDR-RAM chipset without the ability to use DDR-RAM? The answer, as it often is, is money. Just like Intel with the i815E and i815EP, its easier and cheaper just to use a design you already have and just change a little bit of the manufacturing process."
