There you have it. A motherboard that maximizes features so that those who fall into the group of "Power User" will have all we need and then some. With performance that surpasses the EPoX 8KHA+ board, and overclocking options enough to make even the most hardcore among us drool, we've got quite a board here.
But for those who still don't think that this is enough for you, we'll just go ahead and throw in the newest RAID controller to hit the market as well. With support for RAID 0, 1 and 0+1, we have the makings of a natural born killer. Add again the ATA133 support, and things just keep looking better all the time.
All is not perfect, of course. For example, if you use all six USB ports and the subwoofer add-on port, you'll be cutting your available PCI slots in half. An option to have more of these devices placed on a single add-on slot would be nice. It would also have been nice if the available multipliers were maxed out at a higher value. But even with a couple of digs about this board, the benefits outweigh the disabilities by a huge margin.
Finally, we need to consider price. I went to one of my favorite online stores and priced the Shuttle AK35GTR against the EPoX 8KHA+ since that will be one of it's biggest competitors. The result was the Shuttle board being only US$8.00 higher, and that's with RAID built in. So even those who are looking for a bargain can be happy.
Bottom line...If you're one of those who want to overclock your system and also want features that will make you the biggest dog on the block, then do yourself a favor and get one of these motherboards. Simply put, IT ROCKS!
Superb overclocker board
Awesome voltage mod accessible through BIOS
Use of all add-on ports restricts PCI port access
Multiplier only goes to 14x
