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 to 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 Aopen AX3S Audio 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!

AOpen AX3S Motherboard Specs

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 Aopen AX3S Audio I get off 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.

As I mentioned above, the maximum FSB available to me wasnot Aopen AX3S Audio stated on the spec sheet. Vcore setting is available but at first I thought it was resetting itself to the default every time I rebooted.

After much fiddling about, I discovered that I could only make it stick by hitting the 'Save settings' F-key from within that BIOS screen, not from the main menu. Finally, on the good side, the BIOS Aopen AX3S Audio take readings off the boards inbuilt Winbond heat-sensors CPU and casewhich saves fiddling about with thermistors. I did briefly try getting it to Aopen AX3S Audio without doing a proper Windows reinstall, and of course it went flaky. In particular it caused some cross-linked file problems on my Maxtor hard drive which Windows ME seemed incapable of fixing, requiring a run at DOS scandisk.

I can't really fault the board for this, I'm just the eternal Aopen AX3S Audio and a bit lazy. Windows ME seems to have all the drivers it needs for the chipset as part of the package, so I did not bother with the supplied driver disk. Everything seemed happy once I did a proper reinstall.

One final note in this section is on RAM. These boards only take up to megs Aopen AX3S Audio RAM in total, which could be a limiting factor for some people in 6 months from now. The "Pro" indicates that this product has some advantage in comparison with its usual brother.

Aopen AX3S Audio, we are going to check it. It will perfectly suit any good ATX-case. The fact, that the board belongs to ATX form factor, you can feel from the name: For stable work of processors at high frequency the voltage jumps on the supply filter's output mustn't exceed mV at the supply voltage equal 2V. For uF capacitors of this board this figure is equal to mV. After installation of a new BIOS version 1.

The Aopen company states that its Pro-version shows even better results. Unfortunately, we couldn't compare the results, since we couldn't fetch this board. As for a cooler installation, on the first Aopen AX3S Audio the board seems to have enough space for it. But in practice, we had difficulty in installing even a usual Intel cooler, not to mention Golden Orb.

Another peculiarity is that all slots are shifted to the left side; so, AGP slot isn't located tight to the ports anymore. With this layout an installed AGP-videocard doesn't prevent any Aopen AX3S Audio with memory clips. 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 hasn't a good location as well. The cable doesn't leave enough space for a cooler. Model, AX3S-U. CPU: Socket Support Intel Pentium Audio: Chip: Analog Devices AC'97 Audio CODEC on-board. USB: USB Port x 1. Slot: AGP PCI.
