"The board layout is nearly exactly the same as the older K7T Pro. The only noticeable differences are an orange heatink on the Northbridge and an AGP retention device. The board features a nice slot layout of 1 AGP/6 PCI/1 CNR. It has 3 DIMM slots which allow for up to 1.5GB of RAM. The K7T Pro2 uses the VIA 686A Super South Bridge, it would have been nice to see the newer 686B being used but that was MSI's choice. The Onboard Sound supplied with the K7T Pro2 is the VIA VT1611A AC97 CODEC, the sound is not too bad but being an mp3 guru I would rather stick with a PCI sound card like SoundBlaster Live. The K7T Pro2 allows for 4 IDE devices to be connected using Ultra ATA 33/66. The ATX power connector is next to the RAM slots so the power cable won't have to run over the top of the cpu, this is good because it increases airflow around the case."
