All of the overclocking options on the Soyo KT333 Dragon Ultra are located in a BIOS menu called the "SOYO Combo Setup". Here you can adjust FSB speed up to 255MHz in 1MHz increments, multiplier adjustments up to 14x, VCore up to 1.85V, DIMM voltage up to 2.8V and AGP voltage up to 1.8V. On top of this, you can set the CPU:DRAM clock to run at 133/133MHz or in Asynchronous mode at 133/166MHz.
All of the necessary memory adjustments are available. These include DRAM Timing, CAS Latency, Bank Interleave, Precharge to Active, Active to Precharge, Active to CMD, Command Rate and so on. With a 1.85V VCore and default DIMM/AGP voltages I was able to overclock my AthlonXP 1800+ (11.5 x 133MHz) to 1815MHz (11 x 165). This is around 286MHz over its default speed and I am very pleased with the overclocking ability of this board.
As you have probably guessed by now, I really like the Soyo KT333 Dragon Ultra. It features high performance that is on par with competing KT333 boards and is also feature packed, providing onboard 6-channel audio, 10/100 ethernet, USB 2.0 w/ drive bay panel, ATA133 RAID support and a decent software bundle. It also features an excellent layout and to top things off, it looks good too!
At a price of around $US165, the KT333 Dragon Ultra is not the cheapest KT333 board on the market, however, all of its added features and the overall quality of the board certainly justify its cost. The bottom line is, if you are looking for a high performing, feature-rich motherboard for your AMD Athlon or Duron processor, you won't be disappointed if you purchase the Soyo KT333 Dragon Ultra.
