Conclusion

The MSI K7T Turbo-R for its early ages, is almost completely flawless. Stability at 133Mhz FSB was excellent, no freezing in Windows, no crashes during applications and games or any registry errors that we have seen with other beta and engineering sample boards, such as the Iwill KK266-R. Our only major quarrel with this board was that there isn't a lot of space around the Socket A, while there is enough for Orb coolers we prefer the Alpha PEP66-T cooler which requires a bit more space around the Socket A. MSI have again produced a very nice motherboard, well done!
