After around 60 HDtune and HDtach tests here are the results: in the HDtach screenshot you can see my results are not far from the original one form 2004 - please note that the Silicon Image 3112 controller is connected to the rest of the system over the PCI bus which is limited to 133mb/s - if any other member has the 74gb Raptor I expect his results, maybe he tested under better conditions:

Eh, supporting v5 more important than all that stuff.

Gimme socket 462 with 3.3v agp and 12v aux atx power and I'll give you my right leg.

KT333 is best chipset as it supports the former and ddr400, not sure if ever put on mobo with aux power though.

MSI KT3-Ultra says Hi.
I thought such boards didn't exist, you can imagine my surprise when I ran across this one.

This sounded familiar...and yep I bought one back in 2018 according to my ebay emails. Not even sure where it is or if I have it in a PC. Truly a rolls royce of motherboards.

My first AMD Board.

I have a KT3 Ultra2 but despite a recap it's not POSTing. I believe it actually fried a few of my Socket A CPUs too 🙁
