"Our PCMark results show the KT4 Ultra really hammering the KT4 Ultra 2 in the"

nice review. it looks like I'll wait until the 400 boards get a bit more stable before buying in right now. That or I'll go hunt down a KT333 board for the time being. Any idea on when the consumer market will see the improved DDR400?

I'm hoping Corsair or OCZ might have an answer for the DDR400 CAS2 RAM question sometime soon - I know that Corsair lists the product already, but we haven't heard any announcements.

Btw right as we were posting our KT4 Ultra article, we noticed that Tom's Hardware had just posted their mini roundup of KT400 based boards - his results showed a KT333 reference board beating the KT400 boards; so the KT400 chipset right now definitely isn't as mature as it could be.

In the meantime, we're having some fun with Epox's sweet little 8K5A2+ (KT333) board. It has overclocking options galore

Well then it looks like 333 will be the way to go for the time being. I just have to make sure my 2-2-2 mushkin will handle decently at 333 opposed to it's original 2100 spec.

It's not all that pleasing to know the 400 isn't doing well as the chipset has had quite a bit of time in via's hands to improve since it's creation but yet they just let it sit. Ah well we can only hope for a revision to come out soon.

I don't have the results off hand, but we do have the Soyo KT400 Dragon Ultra benchmarked... I don't know how that fares in comparison though.

Can anyone tell how to connect the USB cable from the front of a Antec 1040 case to the JUSB1 connection on a KT4 Ultra? I can't make heads or tails out of the manual. The books says one thing and the pins are labled something else.

Thanks
