Product Review:

Motherboards are quite often overlooked as an important part of a winning computer system. A good motherboard is an absolute necessity for hobbyists wanting to get every bit of performance out of their other components. Motherboards favored by overclockers often feature the ability to tweak the front side bus by increments as small as 0.5 MHz, power setting options, and ultimate control over all the various interfaces in a system. With a good motherboard, overclockers have taken Celerons far beyond their rated performance, boosted video boards far above normal, and enabled some truly frightening rigs to run at better than Gateway and Dell's best with systems under $1000. When it comes to overclocking Athlons, however, there is only one chipset out there to use: Via's KX133. The KX133 is the core chipset of the AK-72 motherboard, AOpen's Athlon offering.
