Stability & Compatibility

Test System

You can review our stability/compatibility testing methods here. The MSI KT3 motherboard obtained a perfect score in this category of testing.

Performance

When it did run it was pretty savvy performance wise but nothing to write home about in Windows applications. The VIA P4 chipset is known for its fast performance so this is to be expected on any motherboard bearing that chipset. The motherboard did exceedingly well in all the 3D graphics based tests and was actually the fastest one tested to date in that arena.

Like I said earlier when this motherboard was going it ran healthy and strong as you can see in all the tests results. Instability was only found when the board was powered down or restarted from Windows triggered restarts as Prime 95 and Burn In Pro all ran without problems on the AV45GTR. The Internet, sending faxes and all the general Windows operations worked just fine also. Bad performance was not a factor with this motherboard just strange intermittent restart problems.
