Being one of the smallest motherboard manufacturers in Taiwan, Iwill is in a relatively tough position against the larger manufacturers out there.

Beginners Guides Cases and Access. All in all a very user friendly Bios. I made a preconception that the board would be rubbish and not be anywhere near as good as my Abit and Asus boards, how wrong can you be….
What’s different in the Iwill KK266Plus-R from the KK266-R ?
Iwlil matter where we put it or what irq we gave it the machine would fall over all the time. A few reboots later and we were all done, or so I thought.
