This is, as I’ll cover in more detail in a little bit, definitely an overclocker’s board, so denying us easy access to the big ass-kicking heatsinks from Alpha, Thermalright, and Swiftech really confused me. On the other hand, I guess they expected their user to hard-set just about everything. The northbridge is passively cooled, so there’s no 40mm screamer in your case.

There’s plenty of room around the socket, unlike the previous two boards I’ve owned. Visit the following links: Are aln new to LinuxQuestions. I wanted at least 6 USB 2.


Ubuntu This forum is for the discussion of Ubuntu Linux. I tested the internal USB header by plugging my mouse into it and it worked fine, as did the 4 ports in back.

The arm on the socket is metal rather than plastic, which I appreciate. Find More Posts by andrewthomas.

That caveat aside, this is an excellent overclocker’s board. I just picked this up for my 2nd PC Originally Posted by SgC. This is aesthetically displeasing but isn’t important past that.

There were just a few criteria that I was looking for when I started hunting around for a new board.

Motherboard review: MSI KT4AV-L – Ars Technica OpenForum

DDR support on the MS is still dicey at best. For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration.

Can anyone suggest how I can solve the LAN card detection problem?
