Iwill is very serious about the stability of its products, and it shows. The KK266 was one of the most stable motherboards we've encountered, and the KK266Plus is the same as well, if not better. The system did not crash even once in over 72 hours of extreme load. This is the first board we've put through our official test suite here at Hardware Analysis that we simply haven't been able to crash. Very impressive. (Of course, the board suffers from the same afflictions as any other VIA board, and may be unstable without appropriate patches and fixes applied, however with all the latest bug fixes in place, the board performed with excellence)

Iwill KA266-R (ALi MAGiK), 266MHz / 266MHz (FSB/Mem)641 MB/s169.9

As usual, there's not much use in pages of benchmarks, but suffice it to say the board performs on target with just about every other KT133A board on the market.
