Share your thoughts with other customers. I must point out that it has been a real struggle to get performance out of the MSI board. A smart move on VIA’s part indeed.

Analysing the layout I always like to take a look at the layout of the motherboards that pass through my system. When the KT smi was eventually released, it was met with quite a bit of disappointment.

The indicators are located right next to the audio and multimedia ports and as well, on the PC-to-PC USB bracket so they can be viewed from the outside of the case.

Ships with the following: I wish these extra connectors would run parallel to the vertical edge but that’s only personal preference. It’s a nice looking touch, but won’t please the overclockers looking to the K7T Pro2 as their next choice. Please try your search again later. Sure there aren’t many USB 2. It’s certainly eye catching, that’s for sure. It also seems like the BIOS setup is critical. So how does the k7r266 of the K7T Pro2 stack up?
