FIC K8 800T Motherboard Review Author:Jakester Date Posted: December 26th, 2003
The FIC K8-800T is a very solid board and is also amongst the cheapest of the current Socket 754 motherboards. With a lot of solid features like on-board audio, lan, together with extra brackets for firewire and USB. If you want to overclock is it the motherboard for you? Find out in our official review.......
The biggest problem with this motherboard are the overclocking limitations of
the BIOS. The K8-800T uses the classic Phoenix-Award BIOS
but the only overclocking options available are adjustable CPU voltage, memory
voltage, and AGP voltage. It is missing options such as the clock multiplier,
memory timings, and the AGP/PCI clock. Without the clock multiplier the only
way to overclock is via FSB speed settings.

Once again, I'm sorry about not having another K8T800 or nforce3 motherboard
as a reference. I think most of the benchmarks are self-explanatory, one you may
not have seen before is Real
Storm. Real Storm looks like a gaming benchmark, but it is far from it. This
is from their website: "The RealStorm Benchmark 2004 is a software rendering
benchmark which will measure the performance of your pc-system. Processor speed,
memory speed, cache type/size and mainboard chipset will have big effect on the
performance of your system. This benchmark is NOT for comparing the speed of
your 3D-accelerator, as it won't use it at all."
