Explosive Labs has reviewed some motherboards with VIA KT333 chipset : Jetway V333U, Biostar MSVIF, Soltek SL-75DRV5 , Aopen AK77-333, and the Gigabyte GA-7VRXP :
Wrapping it all up we are now left with only the results and our thoughts. The Gigabyte GA-7VRXP took the lead in many of the benchamarks with the Soltek and AOpen board just trailing by a small gap. Of course since these are all KT333 motherboards, the results were expected to be very close and they were with not one motherboard really in front of the others. Clearly the KT333 chipset showed some great numbers in all of the tests we have done.

The Soltek, AOpen, and Gigabyte board's were very stable with most of the things we threw at them while the Jetway and Biostar were a bit on the shaky side of things during some tests. I was very happy to see the overheating protection most of these boards had so that you do not put your CPU in any kind of danger.
