Well, you have to give up the props to AOpen for even doing anything like this in the first place. Cards such as the Creative-Live do not use this connector. Obviously AOpen has paid attention to ways to maximise stability with this board. There are not a lot of AGP cards out there that will run happily at this speed! This division produces far better products than Acer itself and also does it’s own research for new innovations not that Acer isn’t good but AOpen still does it better. I didn’t know what was wrong! Hats off to AOpen for going ahead and adapting to the specs that they could.

I don’t think this one should have been skipped. Windows 98 build 4. The jumper location leaves a little to be desired also, as it is placed against the last DIMM socket, and is aopne the most accessible jumper on the board.

The LED connectors and others are bunched into one corner which is not easy to pull sx6bc and put back if the board and other parts are all fixed inside the case.

The 20 most bizarre and innovative motherboards: 1999 – 2010

There are a total of FSB settings: AOpen has truly listened to the overclocking community and came up with a board especially for them. But to my dismay, no 3D related stuff would run!

It’s very informative with some benchmarks and diagrams but the presentation method can improve as the 1st glance gives you a feeling that it’s slightly chaotic. I didn’t know what was wrong! From all this, I can conclude that my Canopus Riva is a very weird card and that this motherboard is awesome!


News [H]ard Forum Settings. Here it is in all it’s glory. They also manufacture lots of other peripherals and are the 2nd largest motherboard manufacturer in the world. This division produces far better products than Acer itself and also does it’s own research for new innovations not that Acer isn’t good but AOpen still does it better.

The juiciest part in the Bios is the Chipset section where you can manually define all the FSB, multiplier setting and Vcore adjustment. Has anyone had the chance yet to actually utilize all these pretty colors? Another flaw is that it has trouble taking in SECC-2 packaged processors! Bus multiplier ratio is selectable from 1.

Test Configuration Processor s: Add us ax6hc your bookmarks. In comparison, the AOpen can only do mhz flawlessly, Mhz would load Windows but will hang as soon as it’s taxed like when a benchmark is run and Mhz can only post!

The floppy connector is placed right at the back of the Slot-1, the traditional xx6bc where AOpen places the floppy and power-supply connectors but at least the big power connector qopen moved aopne front but the floppy connector still remains there.

Those are really useful bus-speeds for overclocking. Personally, I find it better to loop the cable over the back of the board and run it underneath – this helps with airflow through the case too.


Though setting up the board is easy, it’s very irritating to find out the motherboard features, its offerings and many meanings of the Bios menu from the CD. Unfortunately this setting is available only via a jumper block on the mainboard, and not via the Bios. Suspend to Hard Drive saves your current work system status, memory image into hard disk.

But I do have a PB Keyboard that has the color-coded purple plug on it. So what is the big deal here? There are no negative voltage steps available. The games worked again!

I would have like to have 0. The design itself gives a little more surface area to absorb heat than aipen other heatsinks found on other boards.

TuesdayJuly 20, Ax6bd, another stupid title, but this time maybe with a little substance. It certainly did not hurt anything, so why not have a totally pimped out HS on your chipset?

I have to say it absolutely kicks ass not having to think where to put it. So far all looks good.
