A BIOS built not for Overclocking

I didn't even try overclocking with this board as the KT-A is simply not built for it. I think it's important to mention that consumers considering purchasing the KT-A wouldn't be classed as 'computer geeks' either.

To use a 133 MHz based Athlon, there are 2 jumpers you have to adjust - not the greatest design - but it works. The jumpers make switching between 200MHz and 266MHz FSB slightly safer than if you had to make the adjustments in the BIOS where newbies could get into trouble.

The usual Adv. Chipset options.

Hey, this isn't a oc'ers board!

As I mentioned before, stability has always been Tyan's trademark. However, it seems that the Trinity KT-A doesn't follow suit as well as it really ought to. During the testing, I saw several registry errors, BSOD's and other forms of crashing that indicated their might be some stability issues with the KT-A. Next up we have a list of benchmarks on the Tyan KT-A.
