"My overall experience with the AOpen´s AK79D Max has been somewhat frustrating with a few highlights. The frustrating part
was getting it and Windows XP and the nForce2 drivers to play nicely together. Since all that was settled, the board has been
very stable and reliable no lockups or other problems. It certainly is a feature-laden board due to its nForce2 chipset, and
plenty of tweaks are offered in the BIOS, like one megahertz CPU stepping. Also, AOpen has done a nice job with extra software
utilities that add a little flare to their motherboards."
