HotHardware heeft een review klaarliggen van de MSI MS-6309, een socket 370 moederbord gebaseerd op de Via Apollo Pro 133A. Overclocken van dit bordje ging redelijk:
With all of the flexibility that the MS-6309's BIOS affords, we were anxious to see if we could get our P3-500E to new heights. We were able to overclock the CPU to a max of 143MHz. FSB for a total of 715MHz. This particular processor has been proven at 750MHz. (150X5) in a couple of other boards, so we were a little disappointed here. When the FSB was set higher than 143, the system wouldn't post. This was the case no matter what voltage setting we used. Again, with another BIOS release from MSI, this can be easily rectified as the settings are all there ready for use. [break]Wat vooral opviel was dat het bord erg snel was:[/break] The 715MHz. scores show the MS-6309 to be virtually on par with a BX board. Take a look at our Tyan Trinity 400 Update for a comparison between the MS-6309, the BE6 and the Tyan VIA board. The MS-6309 beats the Trinity 400 handily even when it was clocked to 750MHz.! Remember, the MS-6309 is running at 143 MHz. Front Side Bus for a total of 715MHz. here. Also, although this is not quite apples to apples, the MS-6309 @ 715MHz. is right on top of the BE6 when it is clocked to 667MHz. with a 133MHz. FSB. All things being equal, the BX chipset of old still has a slight lead but the gap has narrowed dramatically and I would find it hard to believe that there is a perceptible difference for the end user.
