        It's been testing pretty decent, but it has very limited overclocking capabilities. We reviewed one here at TweakTown. Here's the link for ya:

          It's cheap and it's fast but No.1 son ain't into oc'n so that why he go it. ;)
          Such a waste of a good CPU though. :(
          But VERY stable. :D

            I've only heard good things about it, especially its stability.

                But the KT266A isn't a "value" chipset - the SiS735 certainly is ;)

                  Yes it's definately a value job as the board cost $169aus. ;)

                    My current board cost only about US$15 more than these "Value Boards"...AND it has the KT266A chipset, which is awesome by the way. :D

                        I hear ya on that one. :) If I had my choice between a "value" SiS mobo for $70.00 and a KT266A board for $90.00, I'd go with the latter.

                          The price difference over here in Australia is much, much wider sadly. :cry:

                            Cyrix,

                            What the advantage of the KT266A over the SIS735? Is the advantage the mobo manufacturer or is it the chip set?

                              Both...

                              as a rule the KT266a chipset does offer better performance than the SIS735 - but there will be differences in performance between motherboard manufacturers as well

                              the actual performance difference between a good quality non-OC'd SIS735 and a similar KT266a is measurable in benchmarks, but probably not noticable in gameplay or any regular PC use.

                              I breifly looked at the SIS735 Elitegroup board - I can get it for $79cdn (that's $52US), as opposed to $175cdn for the 8KHA+, but lack of OC'ing features is what made me decide against it.
