    question:
    i have a kt600 delta-lsr.
    AIDA shows:
    --vlink is 640mhz when i use 200FSB.--
    does it mean my pci clock is 40mhz?
    thanks

    The Broadcom Ethernet Controller on this motherboard IS 10/100/1000 (the BC 5788) so provides Gigabit unlike your review.

    The board layout is exceptionally good.

    The number of IDE connectors is the highest I have ever seen.

    The number of rear USB 2.0 ports (6) is also the highest and is not the "standard IO" you talk about.

    Who wants to do overclocking above 200MHz? With the Athlon XP near its limit at 200/400, you are asking for stability problems with the processor going much higher!

    Apart from that - good review!

    What mother would you buy? KT6 Delta (6490) or NF2 Delta (6570). Just 8 dollars of difference? Thanks! Reply

    Here in Spain, the MSI KT6Delta is aviable at 85$, including taxes. I think it's a fine competitor to the 110$ nforce2(no ultra 400).

    P.S. MSI also has a budget NF2 Ultra 400 mainboard, without Firewire, Serial ATA, or RAID, but with onboard sound and LAN, the K7N2 Delta-L, which has a street price of about $90 and still gives dual channel 128bit memory performance. Why would anyone buy a KT600 mainboard when this is available? Reply

    Quoted:
    "For these types of users, choose nForce2 Ultra 400 motherboards from ABIT, Gigabyte, ASUS, and Epox, among others." (endquote)

    Ironic that Anandtech doesn't note that MSI also has their own NForce 2 Ultra 400 option, the K7N2 Delta ILSR, even though they mention the board as having been reviewed at Viper's Lair in this week's news. I have one and have found it to be a great board, still wondering why it rarely gets reviewed compared to ASUS, Abit, DFI, and Chaintech NF2 Ultra 400 boards.

    I assume you're joking # 7. :)

    #8, you forgot to include the two SATA connectors controlled by the VT8237 South Bridge.

    To Evan Lieb :
    1) Good one with the performance for the K8 platform , really liked it . Not just another we know but we can't tell you ....
    2) There's something bothering me in the article
    You say the board offers support for 10 drives but it simply can't do that unless you can put 2 device on one SATA which as far asa I know can't be done . Here's my math
    2 onboarg + 1 Promise = 3 PATA * 2 = 6
    2 SATA *1 = 2
    2+6=8 not 10 .

    Considering the freshness of this product, the price I'm getting from Pricegrabber:

    is staggering ... so cheap ...

    I didn't really read the review, I just looked at the pictures :)

    Looks like the NF2 boards are still the top dog

    hello,
    good review as per usual.
    anyone aware of the linux driver support for the KT600 chipsets...
    can't find much info on it, probably just in the cookers.
    regards,
    Maxim.

    No problem #1.

    And thanks for pointing that out #3, I always seem to make that same mistake.

    Take care,

    Evan

    "...VIA, who has now been mostly regulated to the budget chipset market."

    You mean relegated, not regulated.

    With the NF7-S being available for 115$ shipped this board is a doomed in the enthusiast market. Reply

    Thanks for spotting the overclocking weaknesses. I had really hoped for this board in spite of the typical KT600 benchmark results(people give those numbers way too much importance). It's just that I don't want to touch another nFocer2 board, so I'll be looking at other KT600 options like Abit KV7. Hope you can give that one just as good a test as this was. Thanks again. Reply
