KA11 motherboard review
Klein on May 5, 2000 - Page 3/5
Here is a
list of features that the KA-11 has. This is the official
feature list from FIC's site. One of the major features the
KA-11 does well is its feature rich BIOS. When you enter the
BIOS, be prepared for a whole slew of options available at
This may be
intimidating to some "BIOS fearing" people, but for
the many tweakers out there, this may just be the motherboard
to consider. Another great feature included with the FIC KA-11
is the option to select different memory speeds at various
front side bus speeds.
three options to choose from: +33MHz, -33MHz or 1/1 with FSB.
For example, if you wanted to run a 100MHz bus CPU with
greater memory performance, you would choose the +33MHz option
to make the memory run at 133MHz.
example would be for a -33MHz at 150MHz to get a memory
frequency of 117MHz. This
option is great for those people who want to run at high bus
speeds with lower quality memory.
Sadly though, this option had no effect on my
instability with the board at high bus speeds.
