Gamers Depot trakteert ons op een review van de AOpen AX6BC Pro II Millenium Edition BX plank, uitgevoerd in een mooi zwart kleurtje. Hieronder wat meer info over zijn overklokbaarheid en features:
The menu in the BIOS lets you overclock your CPU by letting you manipulate the bus speed, there are 16 settings in all from 66Mhz to 153Mhz. We slapped in a PIII 550, to see just exactly how far we could go reliably. The fastest we could get out of it was 616Mhz, using a 112Mhz bus speed with PC100 SDRAM. This isn't necessarily a flaw of the board, as we have heard reports of people getting theirs to a higher bus speed, it could be that we have a PIII chip that just doesn't like to be overclocked. We do know for a fact that this board is designed from the ground up to be overclocked, as it even includes 2200uf Capacitors for increased stability. Also included are power plugs on the board for case fans, and the CPU fan, all these plugs are fully monitored to keep you in touch incase a fan fails. If you do get this board and happed to overclock it the point where it won't come on, you can hold down the home key on your keyboard to override it into the default settings.
Looking at the board you'll see 6 (count em') PCI slots, 3 DIMM's and a UDMA/33 controller. Installation was rather painless since the board has a very clean layout. The only thing that made us scratch our heads was why the decided to have the socket to plug in your floppy drive all the way on the backside of the board, just above the AGP slot. We're sure that this is because now it's super close to the floppy controller chip, however, unless you run your floppy cable behind the motherboard, this could become quite an airflow problem, and could potentially prove troublesome for those who might be upgrading and have a short cable coming from their drive.
