Bij The Tech Zone is een review te vinden van AOpen's AX6BC Pro moederbord, met het gouden heatsinkje. Hieronder wat info over zijn overklokbaarheid, wat vrij aardig mogelijk is:
The biggest benefit of the AOpen AX6BC Pro is of course its ability to overclock your CPU. The AX6BC pro features AOpen's version of soft menu. This allows you to adjust the CPU multiplier, FSB, voltage to 2.2V, and AGP divider. Everything can be adjusted in software with no need to ever open the case.
While the number of bus speed adjustments is no where near as great as the Abit BE6-II, there should be enough to get the most out of any CPU. You can chose from the the follow FSB: 66.8, 68.5, 75, 83, 100, 103, 112, 117, 124, 129, 133, 138, 143, 148, and 153Mhz.
The 117Mhz bus allows you to chose between 1/3 or 1/4 PCI dividers. Above that bus speed, it's all 1/4. AGP divider can be either 1 to 1 or 2/3.
The AOpen has no problem running my P3-500 at 620Mhz. It was 100% stable. However, it was unable to run my Celeron 366 at 616Mhz (112x5.5). The highest it could do was 567Mhz (103x5.5). It's really too bad that AOpen didn't include a 105 or 110Mhz bus as this lapped Celeron 366 has no problem running at 605Mhz (110x5.5). To be fair, no motherboard has been able to run my C366 at 616Mhz 100% stable, but the Abit BE6 and BP6 can run the CPU at 605Mhz without any problems.
I found the AX6BC Pro very stable as an overclocker's motherboard. Every bit as good as what Abit provides. It was just too bad I couldn't get the most out of my C366 because of the lack of a 110Mhz bus.
