Accessing the jumpers and components on the AX63 is fairly simple, the jumperless CPU setup of the AX63 does contribute to its ease of installation, as the clock multipliers and front side bus settings are controlled entirely from within the Chipset Features Setup in the Award BIOS setup.

See details for description of any imperfections. Even maneuvering through the BIOS looks slow! AOpen allows the user to manually select the FSB setting regardless of the type of processor installed in aopn system, using a 6-pin jumper block that is adjacent to the last DIMM slot.

Instead of the standard green heatsink, there is a gold colored one unique to to AOpen’s pro line, which is mounted with thermal tape onto the chipset. Slot 2 Computer Motherboard. Although it’s labeled, it’s qopen to see them within the case in one small corner. The reason I use the word ‘truly’ is because there are some connectors located in front ax3 the 5th PCI and 2nd ISA slots and depending whether you connect them or not, you’ll have access to use full length cards on them.

Even though AOpen made an Apollo Pro Plus board — the AOpen AX63 — it’s good to see one of the big boys in motherboards continuing to support the third party chipset manufacturers. Here’s another snip from the PDF manual for a clearer picture of how this feature works: On every test or benchmark, the results point out-right towards the BX chipset.

The ease of integration the Apollo Pro Plus chipset provides manufacturers with allows them to produce designs similar to their Intel counterparts in a relatively easy fashion. I didn’t believe the scores, so I went to download the latest version of the 4-in-1 drivers and installed it. Since Acer is such a large company, they have a sister-company called AOpen, which stands for As63 division now you know why it’s called AOpen? I think we will just have to wait and see. Firstly, let me say that overclocking the Pentium II was very easy with this board.

Anyway, you should note that the generic drivers provided in Windows 98 Second Edition may not be the most stable driver around, although xopen worked fine during all my benchmarks. This depends more on the video-card and cpu-speed. The URMs have been much improved than those found on older AOpen Slot-1 boards I presume that the newer ones are made by a 3rd party manufacturer as some other boards have the same design.

But if you are dying to get your hands on a PC chipset with UDMA66 capability, then I guess this board is something that you could consider. I don’t think this one should have been skipped. Post Your Comment Please log in aoppen sign up to comment. Slot A Computer Motherboard. You may also like.

Whatever you choose to run the different busses, the memory bus can be kicked up or down by 33Mhz from your current FSB. You may try routing the floppy cable below the motherboard. Maybe a newer BIOS or drivers could iron some kinks out. Alternatively, you still have the Auto selection jumper setting too.

Read on to see if AOpen continues the trend of solid, well constructed, non-Intel motherboards with the introduction of the AX63Pro. The Apollo Pro Plus mainboard market is a unique one in that it has the potential to offer Intel some incredible competition, yet the solution has not been properly taken advantage of since it’s debut.

Though this board works well, performance is slacking and minor pauses may occur time to time. The sweet spots with the AX63’s FSB frequency range depends entirely on your hardware configuration, for those of you that can’t seem to get MHz to work, MHz may be what you’re looking for, and for those of you that can’t get MHz to work reliably, there’s always MHz.

I’m not sure if the heatsink is really gold-plated or just gold-coloured. Do not compare newer ratings to older ones, the newer ratings are much more aggressive. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.


There are not many competitors to Intel out there, but VIA has done a good job of keeping up with chipset releases. The same phenomenon happened in some other minor occasions but the board and system still worked flawlessly.

Suspend to Disk feature was first introduced by AOpen and it’s still available in most of their current motherboards. Note that the hard drive used in the benchmarks was only a UDMA33 hard disk. The advantage of using thermal tape, instead of the ever popular spring clips, is that the tape allows more heat to be transferred to the heatsink. Cards such as the Creative-Live do not use this connector. Anyway, here are more benchmark results drumroll This situation continues throughout all the tests.

There are 2 methods to implement it. AXPro CA x 4.

It took over a year for the first non-Intel slot-1 chipset to hit the market, unfortunately the delay in VIA’s release of the Apollo Pro chipset gave Intel the power to capture the majority of the mainboard industry with their more mature BX chipset. Skip to main content. I thought the system hung but it was just a long delay.

Now, since AOpen does provide the conventional Battery just in case, you don’t have to worry about unplugging the power supply. The layout of the rest of the AX63 is perfectly identical to that of the AX6BC, the majority of the empty space on the mainboard is taken up by capacitors that are strategically placed around components that are critical to stable operation of the motherboard.

The results speak for themselves. It is one of the most successful PC companies of Taiwan, which now is an International Corporation that sell PCs mostly made from their own components.

Slot 1 Computer Motherboard for Intel. In every category, it is slower and especially in games because the design of the AGP-bus or the accompanying drivers isn’t as refined as Intel’s.

The correct way to go about implementing this feature is clearly described in PDF-format manual. Windows 98 2nd Edition.
