Iwill KA266 DDR Motherboard Review

Iwill KA266 DDR Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Since I have been particularly impressed with other Iwill motherboards like the KK266 and BD133, I was hoping that my first experience with ALi's Magik 1 chipset and DDRAM would be pleasant.

The KA266's BIOS

Usual stuff under the advanced chipset options..


Ooo... DDR settings...

The biggest letdown for me was the severe lack of adjustable bus speeds in the BIOS. It seems these days that every manufacturer has 1 MHz adjustments up to 200 MHz - even on Iwill's own KK266 line! However, the KA266 maxes out at only 146 MHz!

Also, the adjustable steps are between 1-7 MHz making it very difficult for a tweaker to fine tune his/her system. Using my 1 GHz T-Bird AVIA Y which I know does around 1.5 GHz, the highest stable speed I could hit was 1470MHz. Anything higher and system would be too unstable to finish things that were very CPU intensive even with a VCore at 1.85!

That's it?!?

Next up we have the system spec's used in the benchmarking of the KA266 along with some of the results.
