Stability & Compatibility

You can review our stability/compatibility testing methods here.

Test System

  • SOYO KT333 Dragon Ultra Platinum Motherboard
  • AMD Athlon 2000+ Processor
  • 256MB DDR333 PC2700 Crucial DDR memory
  • Base System specs

As soon as we changed the engineering sample BIOS to a retail one it turned in to a very stable system. I never had stability issues with SOYO before. So I tried to push overclocking limits and I got the best results with it. The board was not bus overclocked by default already, the test frequency was 1666. For some motherboards we see that it may go up to 1674 MHz. This may be added stability and overclocking headroom.

Performance

The performance was not the best but 10 out of 15 is really good if you consider that this board was running the CPU 1666 MHz by default. For some of them you may see 1674 by default as I stated before. 10 points with default frequency with stability is something to admire.
