MSI K7 Master, Socket A, AMD Motherboard

Don’t get me wrong, the K7M is a good board. K7Pro, much better layout. Both appear to have the ATX power connector pretty close to the Slot A, but that shouldn’t matter for me as long as I use a bare Athlon with a Golden Orb which is narrow, so it shouldn’t bump into it, I think.

The fact that it uses an AMD southbridge is a definate plus.

MSI only includes a normal sized heatsink to cool the North Bridge. Blacktree Ars Tribunus Angusticlavius Tribus: Apr 26, Posts: One of the caveats and consequently a major gripe about the K7M was this bad ATX power connector placement, which ruled out the use of big phat high-performance slotA heatsinks.
