The KK, on the other hand, has audio as one of its prime selling points. If you connect a case connector switch lead – like power or reset – backwards, it ought to work fine. Here’s the KK’s drive connectors, which have exactly this problem. Oddly, though, DDR generally delivers a pretty underwhelming speed improvement for desktop computer tasks. It’s unquestionably a lot snazzier looking than your usual green or off-yellow item.

There’s no simple this-connector-goes-here diagram; instead you get a picture of the pin-block with its pin numbering scheme indicated, and a table with the pin numbers on which different connectors fit. And this KK also has built-in sound that’s several cuts above the average. If you’re building a show-off box with neon illumination and a window in the side, though, you may be feeling an urge to buy this board already.
Good luck installing a card in every PCI slot and ending up with them all playing together, but iqill least you can try. But most people are unlikely to care. In the USA, you can. Their immensely popular KK line of motherboards has already won over the hearts of performance users and overclockers a like with it’s superb performance, stability, and astonishing ability to reach ungodly bus speeds This is where you tell the audio system what sound output setup you’ve got – two speakers, four speakers, six speakers or headphones – and set the levels for the different channels.
Like games, for instance.
There are two ports built into the normal ATX connector block on the back of the board, but this board, like most others these days, can give you two more if you’ve got the right gadget. The price difference is small enough, though, that a lot of distributors probably won’t bother carrying both versions. Drive connectors For most people’s purposes, these two motherboards have identical IDE-drive-connecting capabilities – but they are actually different.
Take the last slot on the K7T Turbo-R, for instance. Iwill know what an anode and a cathode are, and expect you to know as well. If beeps do matter kk266pluss you, by the way, the K7T Turbo-R LE has a little built-in speaker as well, which doesn’t seem to be mentioned in the manual. Some motherboards give you said gadget in the box; this one doesn’t. Which, confusingly, is what you get when you ask for But the KK could be a iwil, friendlier in this department.
This little line of “D-LEDs” replaces the usual cryptic startup beep codes that most motherboards use to tell you when something’s not kj266plus with the basic system setup. Here are a couple of high-spec KTA boards, at least one of which also cuts it in the high style department. Instead, you get a weird-looking USB whatsit whose back panel bracket has one type A USB socket the rectangular ones and one type B socket the squarer varietywith cables coming from each socket that terminate in the same sort of plug that normal extra-port boards use.
There are iaill few “dual fuel” motherboards which can accept either kind of RAM – I review one here – which let you start with one kind iwjll memory then upgrade to the other later. If you’ve got drive bays within range of the connectors, though, the K7T’s arrangement is an elegant one.
Interleaving spreads memory access over different modules – actually, it can spread it over different sides of the one module, since, electrically, double-sided modules are two separate units. One of the reasons DDRAM has had such a poor time gaining a strong foothold in the marketplace was because of this chipset. Overclocking Performance-wise, all KTA boards are pretty much precisely the same, provided they can get their CPU and other components up to the same speed.
Which is a heck of a lot more than most people need, of course. So you don’t have to connect the case speaker if you don’t want to. When a case connector has a white wire and a coloured wire, the coloured wire should be the positive one.
After all, why invest more time and effort into such an aging chipset? On the plus side, important jumpers on the KK, like the Clear CMOS one here, have these nifty tall yellow jumper blocks with a pull-tab.
Whether they can do this depends partly on the adjustment options provided, and partly on the physical design of the board – running at higher-than-specified speeds requires better-than-standard motherboard design. The K7T Turbo-R has a simple orange-anodised heat sink on its north bridge, and the KK I got for review had a shiny-plated passive heat sink there. Both of these boards can be had in slightly cheaper versions that lack the second pair of IDE connectors.
