The board itself, like all Intel chipset boards, Aopen AX3S onboard graphics and sound. The graphics are adequate for business but not for 3D games, and are disabled as soon as you put something better in the AGP slot.

Sound is adequate if you're not used to 3D Aopen AX3S and all the associated effects. Might be worthwhile for people on a budget or who aren't too interested in sound, for me its just a jumper switch more to kill something off. I like the positioning of the ATX power connector right at the top too. On the downside I didn't like the horizontal IDE slots. They are a bit too low on the board, and the cables would only reach in my case by using the second of the two connectors.

In my opinion the IDE slots should be where they placed the floppy drive connector, and vice-versa. While 5 is probably enough for most people, I've already filled 4 on mine and could see it being a problem for some people. One good thing about this layout though is that, for me at least, the board sits one slot lower relative to the case than most BX boards I've tried. The integrated video doesn't have a riser card as I had expected, but rather comes premounted beside the parallel port, going where one of the two serial ports Aopen AX3S goes. I can foresee this be a slight pain when Windows goes belly-up and my USB mouse won't work, as it means I have to unplug my modem to put in a serial mouse.

It could also be a problem for people wanting Aopen AX3S use both a serial mouse and another serial device. Audio doesn't cause a problem as it comes out in one of those points on the case where there normally isn't anything. Finally on the nice-stuff front, it has a couple of useful LEFs, one to tell if power is getting to the motherboard, and one to tell if power is getting to RAM.

Useful as a quick diagnostic check if you get that 'I won't start - help! Specifications and stuff Rather than regurgitate it all, here is the link to the AOpen webbie for this board. I assume the higher clock is only for the Pro version, though nowhere is this mad clear. Given the good stability I get Aopen AX3S this, I was left itching for higher settings.


Setting it up In short, this should be pretty easy for anyone used to installing new motherboards. Its a bog-standard ATX size and the only jumper you really need to play with is the one to disable onboard sound. Everything else is handled from within the BIOS. With this layout an installed AGP-videocard doesn't Aopen AX3S any Aopen AX3S with memory clips.

The review on the AOpen AX3S mainboard

When developing an electric design of the boards, AOpen used the Frequency Isolation Wall technology. The idea of this technology is the following: A power supply jack Aopen AX3S a good location as well. The cable doesn't leave enough space Aopen AX3S a cooler. The board has 3DIMM slots, though this is more than enough for i northbridge you won't be able to set more than MBytes memory. Although there is special space for the second chip see the photo above.


As for Award Medallion 6. Although, there are all necessary things thin configuration of memory timings and IRQ distribution. It has SoundMax drivers, allowing to Aopen AX3S the maximum use of it.

Besides, there are some novations. There is a special connector for PC-Doctor Debug.


Aopen AX3S This device is designed in a form of a box, which is installed in 5. The front panel has 8 indicators. Unfortunately, it's not included in the complete set.

Besides, there included hardware monitoring, holes for installation in the case etc etc. The core voltage can Aopen AX3S adjusted in the range of 1.

Notice, that it doesn't depend on the nominal processor voltage. It means, that on the 1. The AOpen Aopen AX3S Pro is the latest in AOpen's "Pro" line of motherboards.
