Conclusion

 

The Aopen AK73 Pro motherboard is one of the most stable boards we have seen during our testing of Socket A motherboards at TweakTown. While being a little slower in the gaming department though not by much, this board performed flawlessly under Windows 98 and 2000. Overclocking the CPU was easy, while we would rather have had it inside of BIOS its still nice to see overclocking options on the board.
