Unfortunately, on our board at least, there is no accompanying jumper. As shown above, we chose the most aggressive options available in testing. RAID 1 backs-up the data on one drive and mirrors it on the redundant drive, far more useful for data safety. However, as you will see later in this review, the benefits of DDR are tangible. The connectors for the various brackets are grouped close together too , colour-coded for simple installation.

Acer Predator Helios Review: By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy. Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth. Vcore voltage is adjustable in 0. This allows them to be in close proximity to the drives they service.

We’d hoped the KT chipset would have kt33 for this.

MSI KT3 Ultra-ARU Specs – CNET

We’d hazard a guess that the motherboard platform is irrelevant for this test. Our recurring theme seems to be present here. However, we’ve heard stories of other readers who have used similar utilities with other products and they killed their board, even though the process appeared to complete without error. Naturally, this is a sample of one, your mileage may vary. The MSI’s better ultar optimisations at FSB put it ahead of the Asus by just over a second, we had expected to see such a result after seeing the results of the non-enhanced memory benchmark.


Both systems were configured for maximum performance. The differences are only significant in benchmarking terms, we challenge anybody to tell the visual difference between and fps respectively.

Via’s engineers were given the task of improving the KTA’s lacklustre performance, they came up with something not far short of remarkable. We had to manually install the USB 2.

A Five Camera Android Contender. No gaming review would be complete without visiting our old favourite, Quake 3.

Any reduction in time would be more than welcome. Naturally, having data stored over two ulltra means less latency but also more risk.

We’ve seen that running RAM asynchronously at FSB improves theoretical performance, let’s see how this translated to real-world applications and benchmarks. The manual is well written and intuitively easy to understand. We did run the Live Update during testing and it worked flawlessly. The chipset is capable of 5.

Lenovo Yoga C Laptop Review: On closer inspection of the individual results, we find 638e Lobby tests gain the greatest improvement. Lenovo Smart Display Review: The extensive specification list informs you that this board is jam-packed with features.

MSI have a deserved history of producing rock-solid motherboards that arrive in the marketplace shortly after a chipset revision. At first glance, the numbers look disarmingly similar. The connectors for the various brackets are grouped close together toocolour-coded for simple installation. RAID 1 backs-up the data on one drive and mirrors it on the redundant drive, far more useful for data safety. FSB selection is flexible too, ranging from – Mhz in 1Mhz increments, something which the overclocking and tweaking community will be grateful for.


We can look back to the Sisoft Sandra unenhanced memory benchmarks for an explanation of the results. Let’s have a look at how our protagonists got on when set to calculate Pi to 10 million places.

MSI KT3 Ultra ARU Motherboard Review

We feel that MSI’s interpretation of the KT chipset has been a successful one, one that marries performance to stability. Reproduction in whole or in part, in any hltra or medium, without express written permission of HotHardware.

It’s quite obvious from the start that MSI has taken great strides to put together a complete system.
