What does all this mean? While this is the first review of a KT133 motherboard here at, it is far from the last. I have a couple others on the test bench right now. Other boards besides the AZ11 will offer betting overclocking options, have 6 PCI slots or an ISA slot. However, if overclocking isn’t your thing, we didn’t have single problem with stability or installation issues with FIC board. Compaq trusts the AZ11 and so can you with your important information. But if you are a serious hardware nut and can’t wait to push your Duron 700 up to 950 MHz, this board is not for you.
