Soyo KT600 Dragon Ultra Platinum Motherboard Review

This was in fact a total joy for us to test. Soyo, while not having as many varieties of motherboards like the big names, it sure doesn't need them with this first time hit.


Designed to run against the biggest names with all the onboard features you will need, it is now becoming hard to justify paying for a name rather than a good product.


Soyo's performance and optimisations was top notch, with a resounding victory in all the benchmarks it is hard to put a damper on this product. All the features like Firewire, additional Serial ATA RAID controllers and Gigabit Ethernet with hardware 6 channel sound makes this motherboard one for those who want to overclock without paying for a simple name that doesn't guarantee the fastest or most feature-packed product of its kind.


Overall we were greatly impressed with the performance, features and overclocking results with only the two flaws in the FDD connector and the power plug placement we really couldn't put this motherboard down that hard with these results.


- Pros






Good overclocking


Nice colour scheme


Additional SATA ports




Gigabit LAN


- Cons


Placement of FDD and Power ports


Rating - 9 out of 10 and TweakTown's Performance Award
