Bij Sharky Extreme is een review te vinden van de AOpen AX63 Pro moederbord gebaseerd op de VIA Apollo Pro Plus chipset. Dit bordje heet o.a. support voor PC133 geheugen, geeft je de keuze uit 32 busspeeds die via het BIOS geconfigureerd kunnen worden. Kortom, een lekker plankje voor overklokkers.
With over 30 different FSB settings, the AOpen board is one of the most complete overclockers we have tested. Not only does it allow all these different clock settings, but it is capable of doing it all in the BIOS, without having to fiddle with jumper settings. This has all been done before on a BX platform, however, the advantage comes with the new PCI and AGP dividers.
Earlier in the year when we reviewed the AX6BC Pro we talked about booting with a 153MHz frontside bus speed. At the time, this could only be done with a PCI video card and was not a viable overclocking option. Now, thanks to the AX63Pro's selectable AGP divider option of 2, AGP cards are able to run safely at a speed of 76.5Mhz when the system bus is screaming along at 153MHz, which is only about 10MHz above the AGP card's stock speed level of 66MHz.
Coupled with some of our favorite EMS Technologies PC133 HSDRAM modules, the AOpen AX63Pro is an overclocker's dream. With the capability of easily doing 133MHz and keeping all of the components within spec, this board will allow for some serious overclocking of native 100MHz FSB CPUs.
