In conclusion, the Shuttle AK37GTR is quite a nice all around motherboard. With a nice finishing touch, this board could turn out into a winner. Unfortunately, when comparing it to the FIC AN19E we reviewed a couple weeks ago, it falls short. It's all about the little things that make a board truly shine over others. One feature that I would like to see on future Shuttle motherboards are more onboard USB ports, as well as some bundled software. The only things on the CD that was included with this motherboard was drivers and manuals as well as a link to the Shuttle website.
As we stated on the last page, performance should be similar between all KT400 motherboards. But still, when one motherboard performs worse then another, whether it is 1 FPS or 15 FPS, it's a con to the motherboard. Maybe a BIOS update could help put the AK37GTR over other KT400 motherboards on the market like the FIC AN19E?
Extra power connectors for stability
Lacks a few "Extras" (extra USB ports, bundled software etc.)
Performance worse then other Kt400 motherboards
No active Northbridge cooling
Rating - 8/10
