Some motherboards give you said gadget in the box; this one doesn’t. Looks great, goes hard! Just reverse the connector and the LED will start doing its thing. Iwill know what an anode and a cathode are, and expect you to know as well. It won’t quite have the performance of BaseT Ethernet, but it doesn’t require any special hardware on the other computer, and the five metre maximum USB cable length should give you decent positioning flexibility. Both of these boards can be had in slightly cheaper versions that lack the second pair of IDE connectors.

As has been noted elsewherethough, this can cause a problem. Frankly, I think Promise are asking for people to do these “back door updates”, when they cripple their entry level controllers kk26plus badly. One of these connectors gives you rear surround speaker output, and the other one provides the kk266plud and subwoofer channels, bringing the total up to a full home-theatre-compliant five-point-one channels. But the KK could be a bit friendlier in this department.
Iwill KKPlus KTA Motherboard Review | PC Perspective
There are a few “dual fuel” motherboards which can accept either kind of RAM – I review one here – which let you start with one kind of memory then upgrade to the other later. The KK, on the other hand, has audio as one of its prime selling points.
These days, built-in-audio motherboards are a pretty safe bet, as long as you don’t want anything all that special. It’s just not usually good for anything much. Which, confusingly, is what you get when you ask for It’s a popular kk266pls some KT variant powers most of the Socket A Athlon or Duron motherboards in the world today.
Practically identical, in fact, except for plain lwill built-in sound, and the addition of an interesting USB networking option. But the KK also comes with an extra sound output bracket which you can install in any empty slot location on the back of your case.
The price difference is small enough, though, that a lot of distributors probably won’t bother carrying both versions. Whether they can do this depends partly on the adjustment options provided, and partly on the physical design of k2k66plus board – running at higher-than-specified speeds requires better-than-standard motherboard design.
It often used cheap and nasty chipsets that might or might idill work properly with whatever Kk266plus you wanted to use, and which were sometimes cantankerous about stepping aside when you tried to install a proper sound card instead.
But it’ll serve, it saves you some money that you’d otherwise have to spend on a sound card, and it can be easily disabled if you want to upgrade. Both of these boards can be had in slightly cheaper versions that lack the second pair of IDE connectors. Drive connectors For most people’s purposes, these two motherboards have identical IDE-drive-connecting capabilities – but they are actually different.
Iwill KK Plus Motherboard Review –
RAID 1 is mirroring, where the data on one drive is duplicated on another drive, for security. Multi-connector motherboards with all of the connectors in the usual spot near the RAM slots – like the KK, and pretty much every other dual-controller motherboard – can kk66plus annoying to set kj266plus you tend to get a cable snarl.
The way around this problem is to opt for a motherboard that has all of its CPU settings in software. Each connector pair has one input and one output. But if you’re doing RAM-hungry things like pro graphics or video work, heavy multitasking, manipulation of giant databases or simulating a brutal gladiatorial spectaclegetting slabs of RAM on the cheap has never been easier.
If you’ve got an old ISA card that you don’t want to replace with something newer, or if your old ISA card is some oddity that you can’t replace iwipl a PCI unit, then the KK will let you keep using it.
Whatever the reasons, the KKPlus has the heredity to be one super fine motherboard, and since my KKR has kk266plua quite comfortable in its’ Lian Li case, it won’t be pried out without a serious fight!
It won’t quite have the performance of BaseT Ethernet, but it doesn’t require any special hardware on the other computer, and the five metre maximum USB cable iwull should give you decent positioning flexibility. And, as this Anandtech piece notes, you can also get around the problem by lowering your CPU’s apparent default multiplier.
Just reverse the connector and the LED will start doing its thing.

After all, why invest more time and effort into such an aging chipset? For more demanding purposes, though, these boards both get the Recommended stamp from me! Well, not unless someone makes a hardware setup motherboard with dozens of DIP switches, anyway.
If you only need four or fewer drives and don’t want the boot delay the extra controller causes, you can just turn it off in the BIOS setup. It’ll work, no worries. It’s unquestionably a kk2666plus snazzier looking than your usual green or off-yellow item.
You can move a couple of jumpers to select which “side” each output’s on.
