Final Breakdown


Motherboards are the worst component in a system to replace, but this one went in easily and had some great features to make it easy to tell when something wasn't connected right.


At $199, it's a little pricey.


The performance is as it should be for a KT133-based motherboard. A correction to the space allowed for the cooling heatsink/fan and a bit more options in the FSB selections wouldn't hurt. The extra USB connectors and FireWire are extremely welcome.


A lot better than AOpen's previous designs, with only one really obvious flaw.

Pluses (+)
  • Normal range of features, plus extra USB and FireWire.
Minuses (-)
  • Meager overclocking options.
  • Small layout flaws.
