Final Breakdown

Installation:

Just like installing any other motherboard, it takes a bit of doing. The software thankfully went in quickly and relatively painlessly, though an automated setup would have been nicer at least for purposes of the generic drivers.

Price:

About the same retail prices as any other mainstream Athlon motherboard right now, and the prices don't look to be changing that much.

Performance/Features:

The performance is on par for a KX133-based motherboard, but the ability to alter the FSB settings leaves a lot to be desired. A small layout flaw regarding the cooling fan hurts a bit, too.

Overall:

A good choice for gamers looking for an easy to use motherboard and not planning to push their processor to the absolute limits of its performance.

Pluses (+)
  • Normal range of features.
  • Performance on par with KX133's.
  • Minuses (-)
  • Meager overclocking options.
  • Small layout flaws.
