Soltek is in not known for their impact on the motherboard
market. In fact, many of you may have never heard of them before
this review. But this doesn't prevent them from putting
their best effort forward to ship a very competitive KX133 solution
to the Athlon market. SoltekUSA, the US main distribution for the Soltek brand,
sent this board along to let people know that their product
exists, and that they are proud of it.

Having never released an AMD 750 chipset Slot-A board,
the SL-77KV is their first attempt in the growing Athlon
user base. The board has all the features that most other
boards do, as well as some extras for those looking for
a decent overclocking solution. Here are the specs
on the Soltek board:
