A lot of users have discovered problems taking advantage of multiplier ratio settings on some KTA motherboards when trying to overclock to a MHz FSB. Since KTA motherboards are, most often, slightly revised versions of KT boards, they’re mature products, and many offer robust, menu-driven overclocking options. But there are a few things the KTA can’t do, and we’d best recount those.

Taken together, these things could add up to one seriously fast Athlon platform for the overclockers among us.
Thing is, even though DDR chipsets and motherboards are finally starting to hit the market in earnest, the KTA is increasingly looking like it’s going to be around for a while.

Furthermore, several problems have recently been discovered with many of VIA’s chipset, with the KTA being one of the most affected.
VIA KTA Motherboard Roundup – June

This last one is more of an issue with certain manufacturer’s implementations of multiplier controls, and not really a chipset problem. Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or chipxet posting their homework.
In theory, the KTA will be at a comparative disadvantage in certain scenarios where the system has to move large amounts of data from several sources and destinations at the same time. I’m wary of the VIA chipset due to these reports. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
Seriously, folks, the KTA has been around for a while, and so has the skeleton of this review, on which I’ve finally found time to put some flesh. The Final Version of KT? Thank you for making me aware of this article and potential bug. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. Heck, my own computer has been running on a KTA motherboard for a while now, come to think of it.
Well, it’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here. That’s a big deal, because previous Athlon chipsets just weren’t friendly to bus overclocking. We like to mix it up to keep a little confusion going. I haven’t had a chance to test for the bug yet.
Read on to find out why. As such, we thought now would be a good time for us to take a look at all the KTA boards we have in the lab and see which is best overall. But there is a little more to the KTA than that. The Denmark reference posts a fix, which I’m willing to try, plus VIA has a new set of drivers available, so this problem may be fixed. But there are a few things the KTA can’t do, and we’d best recount those.
TR reviews the Via KT133A chipset
chipst Despite being chipset issues at heart, they created a lot of discussion about which KTA is “bug free” and which one performs the best.
At the same time, numerous BIOS updates and board revisions have been released that help to correct some the above problems.
Customize The Tech Report DDR memory support is coming from Via in the form of the KT chipset, which we’ll be reviewing soon.
