This system allows for a moderate amount of interpretation by the end user for troubleshooting a motherboard problem. However, with the recent announcements and moves made by AMD, many of those boards will lost their overclocking advantage, and will again be put on equal grounds with all other previously released motherboard, including the MSI K7T Pro. Fortunately, those massive capacitors are far enough away that they shouldn’t pose a problem for any reasonably sized heatsink, although extremely large ones could have some trouble. The board is a pleasure to work with. The physical design of the motherboard is fairly reasonable and common.

The package is pretty complete. Microstar really seems to be on a roll lately. This is much better than the non-shared AMR slots that we saw on the first boards with such a slot and “wasted” PCB space that could potentially be alotted to an additional PCI slot.
There are better options out there, such as the Asus A7V and Abit KT7, both of which offer the multiplier adjustments that are very often sought msu with Socket A motherboards.

However, with the recent announcements and moves made by AMD, many of those boards will lost their overclocking advantage, and will again be put on equal grounds with all other previously released motherboard, including the MSI K7T Pro. They followed that up with the K7 Proalso based on the AMD chipset, that offerred a number of features over the Fester reference design they used for their original design. Some color changes and flaws may appear.
Well, a decent amount compared to what can be expected. The one used in the test bed here at Athlonmb.
The physical design of the motherboard is fairly reasonable and common. For instance, the 4 LED lights might arrange in a configuration to tell the user by referencing the manual that the problem with the boot process is with the memory, and then the user can go from there by testing to see if the memory is in the wrong slot, or not seated correctly, etc.
There is almost nothing to gripe about with the K7T Pro 2-A. The most important being multiplier changing and Core tweak. Those caps made the installation of the CPU prro a bit difficult.
MSI K7T Pro KT133 Motherboard Review
Keep in mind that that amount of voltage ksi might not be enough for those wanting to push their front-side bus above MHz. Next up we see the large capacitors that border the Socket on the motherboard.
This single device makes finding and solving initial system problems extremely useful. Memory performance could be better. They’ve also been one of the biggest supporters of AMD’s Athlon, including one of the few board ready at the launch of that processor. The last thing ,si want to do is break off a cap while trying to install the cooler. The K7T Pro 2-A is an ideal overclocker’s motherboard for someone who don’t want to pay an arm and leg. Nearly everything is controlled by the BIOS. Sign up now Username Password Remember Msk.

What does this motherboard offer to overclockers, or performance gurus? There are few things that must be said about this motherboard, or any motherboard similar to it.
Review of MSI K7T Pro 2a
MSI even went so far as making the box the motherboard came in useful. Combine this with the monstrous uF capacitors that help ensure sufficient power for the CPU and you get a rock solid motherboard – the most stable Socket-A board we’ve tested to date in fact.
As you can see, the Multi-Media benchmark is right up there with the best of the best. If there is one area where the K7T Pro 2-A falls short is memory performance. You will just have to be extra careful. Those of you with ISA modems or sound cards are going to have to bite the bullet soon and get those peripherals in PCI format.
