DDR For AMD: 16 Boards With VIA KT266

Soltek SL-75DRV: A Good All-Rounder

Board revision: 1.0

The Taiwanese company Soltek shows its innovative side with this board: A routine called "Red Storm" that is integrated in the BIOS tests the processor for its maximum overclocking capacity. However, this feature has no practical value: After overclocking the CPU based on the information given by the "Red Storm" program, it was no longer possible to start the operating system. Positive features come in the form of the AGP Pro-Slot, which also supports high-performance graphics cards. Soltek has done away with a chipset fan.

External temperature sensor that can be used anywhere.

Well-intentioned, but impractical: The Red Storm function for maximum overclocking.
