Lost Circuits is een review rijker van de Microstar MS-6167 Slot-A plank. Het meeste over dit bordje is al wel bekend, dus hieronder maar meteen een hap uit de conclusie:
With the MS-6167, MSI successfully demonstrates that a more economically oriented version of the original AMD Fester reference design can be successfully implemented into a production version of an Athlon board. With a slight increase of agility and additional features such as the USB ports and wake-on-LAN, the MS-6167 remains a very down-to-earth board with excellent stability and performance.
The Award BIOS does offer some possibility for adjusting the memory timing settings, and the overall manageability of the Award BIOS is more user friendly than the AMI BIOS used in the FIC SD11 and ASUS K7M. That still does not change the overall impression that a manual IRQ router would be more than desirable. As things stand at the moment, the MS-6167 is an excellent first generation SlotA board with enough expandability for about everything and the necessary stability to handle the demands of those of us who make a hobby out of torturing their systems. At an estimated street price of about $150 there is very little that could stand in the way of giving this board some serious consideration.
