With all this success, Microstar could have relaxed a bit, but instead they have chosen to take another step forward by releasing yet another new Socket-A motherboard. More than enough for even the most demanding gadget guy. Now, don’t get me wrong. Built in ATA support is a great feature to have, especially if you don’t want to purchase a separate controller card. This single device makes finding and solving initial system problems extremely useful. Nearly everything is controlled by the BIOS. In the processor market, Intel and AMD release faster chips nearly every month, and in the video card market, NVIDIA has stuck to a 6-month product cycle to make sure they have the fastest video card.

This time it is not a whole new design, but a revision of the K7T Pro. Can we say KTA boys and girls?


Memory performance could be better. There are only two actual jumpers. Supports 3 pin unbuffered DIMM using 6 memory banks, maximum memory size of 1. Mind 7kt the caps are far enough away from the CPU socket that it won’t interfere with the installation of really big heatsinks like those from Alpha or Global Win.
