Bij Gamers Depot is een review online geplant van de AOpen AK72. Dit KX133-bordje bleek stabiel op de default bus speeds en ging goed overweg met PC100 en PC133 geheugen.
As far as compatibility goes, the AK72 was quite the little trooper and handled everything we threw at it with no issues we could see. It even handles using mixed memory, PC100 and P133, just fine and will automatically adjust its memory timings to the appropriate settings during boot, which is a nice feature for those who want to upgrade to PC133 but aren't too excited about throwing away their PC100.
Just looking at this board one can tell that AOpen has crafted it to be very stable, by including a ton of power capacitors right behind the CPU slot. This is an important thing to look for when purchasing an Athlon board, as there have been some boards in the past which didn't handle some of the higher speed Athlon CPUs too well. OEMs and cheapskates alike will appreciate the AMR slot that lets you slap in a el'cheapo card that houses both modem and audio. Although most people see this slot as a complete waste of time, we do see the OEM value here.
