    FIC K8 800T Motherboard Review
    Author: Jakester
    Date Posted: December 26th, 2003
    SLRating: SLRating: 9/10
    Bottom Line: 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?

    Test System:

    Athlon 64 3200+
    FIC K8-800T
    512MB Kingston HyperX DDR400
    Maxtor 120GB 7200RPM 8MB cache
    ATI Radeon 9800 Pro

    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."
