The results are very similar for all other texture sizes in terms of differnce between the both motherboards. The ATX back-panel is colour-coded according to the PC99 specification for easy identification and plugging in of connectors. This is a feature that will quickly spread to most other motherboards, and it was actually first discovered by AnandTech on a Shuttle motherboard, however AOpen implemented it on the AX63 and it does add a world of expandability to the realm of the overclocker. Very nifty and good for frequent fiddlers if you ask me: Over time, AOpen has built itself a nice reputation of the most stable and well performing motherboards in the industry.

Below are more details of each, taken from the manual: The correct way to go about implementing this feature is motherboare described in PDF-format manual. AXPro CA x 4. The layout of the rest of wx63 AX63 is perfectly identical to that of the AX6BC, the majority of the empty space on the mainboard is taken up by capacitors that are strategically placed around components that are critical to stable operation of the motherboard.

Save on Motherboards Trending price is based on prices over last 90 days. A unique absence from the AX63, and all Apollo Pro Plus boards for that matter, is the green heatsink that made its way to the BX counterparts. I think we will just have to wait and see. Any Condition Any Condition.

In this board, there is an adequate gap aope the DIMM slots and the above mentioned connectors but in many other boards those same connectors are nearly flushed against the DIMM slots, causing inconvenience to use the 1st DIMM slot.


Now some of you might ask motgerboard Acer has got to do with an AOpen motherboard. With more and more manufacturers trying their hands at VIA’s infant aaopen, it’s good to see one of the big guns like AOpen support the other third party chipset manufacturers and do them justice with a well constructed board. I thought the system hung but it was just a long delay. This item doesn’t belong on this page. Anyway, here are more benchmark results drumroll The quality of the AOpen User’s Guide isn’t as high as it could be in comparison to ABIT’s “super manual” but it’s definitely an improvement motheeboard some of the other creations it seems that manufacturers just throw together at the last minute.

So you can be confident that every model passes through AOpen world-renowned testing lab before it goes into production at one of the company’s ISO certified facilities. You may try routing the floppy cable below the motherboard. There were a good number of capacitors both around the chip and a few smaller ones scattered around the board.

This situation continues throughout all the tests. Accessing the jumpers and components on the AX63 is fairly simple, the jumperless CPU setup of the AX63 does contribute to its ease of installation, as the clock multipliers and front side bus settings are controlled entirely from within the Chipset Features Setup in the Award BIOS setup.

The results using a new Apollo PC chipset board is like downgrading your other system components! There are 2 methods to implement it. The documentation bundled with the board is absolutely top-notch, as we’ve all come to expect from AOpen. This division produces far better products than Acer itself and also does its own research for new innovations not that Acer isn’t good but AOpen still does it better.


Suspend to Disk feature was first introduced by AOpen and it’s still available in most of their current motherboards.

However, when I tried to use the same settings on the MS Pro, the system showed some instability, especially when running the Winstone benchmarks. Anyway here are all the FSB settings available: The same phenomenon happened in some other minor occasions but the board and system still worked flawlessly.

The lowest-priced item in unused and unworn condition with absolutely no signs of wear. I do hope AOpen realise my constant complain about the over-concised manual as I believe it is quite important to portray a finished product for a company of its size and calibre, and considering how much effort they have put into designing the motherboard. Read on to see if AOpen continues the trend of solid, well constructed, non-Intel motherboards with the introduction of the AX63Pro.

Even maneuvering through the BIOS looks slow! The board is tad bigger and spacious than many other BX motherboards of its category and the result is that most connectors are easily accessible without any hindrance. If this is a board aimed at overclockers, what happened to the 3rd fan-connector?

It took over a year for the first non-Intel slot-1 chipset to hit the market, unfortunately the delay in VIA’s release of the Apollo Pro chipset gave Intel the power to capture the majority of the mainboard industry with their more mature BX chipset.
