AOpen AK73 1394(a) Motherboard Review

CoreSpeed 3D has gotten hold of an AOpen AK73 1394(a) Motherboard and put it through it's paces. Now they want to share the information they received from the testing, poking and prodding. here's a snip:

 

"The white clip at the bottom of the AGP slot is a AGP retention clip - finally someone put a piece of plastic on the board to use the back fin of the video card that I wondered why companies even included. This clip works awesome and makes sure your Geforce3 that you took a mortgage out on your soul to obtain doesn't become dislodged during transit."

Chaintech 7KJD Motherboard Review

The AMD760 chipset has been a good performer when it comes to all-out Athlon performance, but the cost has left some folks with a dry taste in their mouths. So what would happen if you could make a motherboard based on this chipset and still maintain KT133A board prices? To see for yourself, head on over to Bench House and check out their review of the Chaintech 7KJD Motherboard. here's a snip:

 

"...Then we come to the southbridge, which, in case of the 7KJD model, has an interesting solution.

Azza 815EPX Motherboard

Active Hardware take a look at a motherboard by a company named Azza...namely the Azza 815EPX Motherboard. here's what they had to say about it:

 

"The Azza 815EPX is one of the newest boards on the market to base itself around the Intel 815EP chipset. One of the more interesting aspects of the 815EPX is its support for Azza-Up - a feature that allows USB and audio ports to be relayed to the front of the system, rather than the back. Azza-Up is included as part of the Jumbo Pack version of the 815EPX board. As for the rest, the 815EPX is essentially a conventional board, with all the normal features one might expect, including support for PC133 memory and ATA100 drives."

Abit KG7 Motherboard

PC Hardware have reviewed the Abit KG7 Motherboard and have benched it under both W2K and Linux. here's a snippet:

 

"Abit also included several advanced memory and chipset timing settings. The memory settings are not very hard to operate considering that there are several templates: Manual, Auto, Normal, Fast, Turbo, Ultra. I couldn't see what settings every template used, but if you know a little bit about clock signals you should be able to achieve the same results using the Manual setting on any mobo."
