AOPEN AX34 AUDIO DRIVER
Interleaving makes RAM bandwidth look a lot more impressive in some benchmarks, but for desktop computer tasks makes no difference to speak of to actual system performance. Well, you have if it works, anyway. AOpen are rather more forward about the overclocking potential of their products than most other manufacturers. That doesn’t mean the board’s not happy running CPUs at stock speed – but if that’s all you want to do, you might as well buy a cheaper motherboard. First up, it’s got lots of CPU speed adjustment potential, which I’ll deal with in detail in the “Overclocking” section below. The AX34 Pro II would be an excellent choice for the Socket overclocker even if it was the same boring green as most other motherboards; the black-and-silver look is a bonus. The surface finish on a heat sink that’s primarily cooled by air flow is pretty much completely irrelevant, but it sure looks purty.

Not that the Pro II’s particularly expensive. For hardware enthusiasts, though, a black board with all the latest twiddly bits makes an excellent core for the latest revision of aopdn screaming top-spec game machine.

The surface finish on a heat sink that’s primarily cooled by air flow is pretty much completely irrelevant, but it sure looks purty. Now, to most people, a black motherboard is about as interesting as a shiny enamelled engine for their car. Want a top-class Socket motherboard?
Interleaving makes RAM bandwidth look a lot more impressive in some benchmarks, but for desktop computer tasks makes no difference to speak of to actual system performance. AMR modems are dirt cheap it’s now possible to buy them retail – only system integrators could get them at first but they’re all “host based modems” that need special drivers in order to work.
The only issue is a mechanical one – at by millimetres, this is an unusually large motherboard.
Well, you have if it works, anyway. But with three-wire fans, the headers let system monitoring software keep tabs on the fan speed, which is a handy feature. Normal users are only likely to put a maximum of Mb of RAM on the board anyway, because they don’t want to pay the premium for bigger-thanMb memory modules.
That doesn’t mean the board’s not happy running CPUs at stock speed – but if that’s all you want to do, you might as well buy a cheaper motherboard.
Overclocking The AX34 puts the big fat CPU power supply smoothing capacitors far enough away from the processor socket that there should be room to mount the most outrageous of chip zx34.
The last light turns on when the POST is successful. It raises certain questions about one’s life priorities. AOpen are rather more forward about the overclocking potential of their products than most other manufacturers.
Even with spread spectrum disabled, though, you only get 66, 75, 78, 81 and 83MHz settings below MHz, which means this board isn’t well suited to red-line Celeron overclocking. AOpen’s made another black motherboard.
Four drives only, but no boot difficulties. The southbridge chip on a motherboard, essentially, takes care of every function that the northbridge doesn’t – the IDE bus, USB, Plug and Play, the PCI to ISA bus bridge connection if there is onekeyboard and mouse control, power management and so on. And many host based modems have compatibility problems with some other modems.
There’s also auddio usual drivers-and-manual CD, that gives you the manual again in Adobe Acrobat format as well as the support software for the board, and a free copy of Norton AntiVirus v6.
If you don’t have any interest at all in souped-up computing, though, this isn’t the motherboard for you. The AMR slot’s pretty much useless. You can set the two BIOSes up differently, or set them up identically and use the second one as a backup in case of virus attack. It also makes it easy to make xudio of lower capacity modules from your old motherboard, and add more RAM, without running out of slots.
AOpen AX34 Pro & AX64 Pro – VIA Apollo Pro A Motherboard Roundup – July
They don’t tell us whose military specification these circuit boards are alleged to meet. Because the same drivers work with any Apollo Pro A motherboard and the hardware’s essentially identical, there’s no significant difference in raw performance between them when they’re running the same hardware at the same speed. Again, I’m not audioo how useful this feature is. Overall Want a top-class Socket motherboard? Most people don’t have to interpret a BIOS beep code more than a few times in their lives.
But there’s no harm in using it, if you’ve got it. Mere mortals don’t need anything like that much, of course. What you aopej Unlike the old black AX6BC, the black AX34 comes aopem a box with a window and a see-through clamshell plastic case, so it doesn’t look normal even sitting on the shelf.
The AX34 puts the big fat CPU power supply smoothing capacitors far enough away from the processor socket that there should be room to mount the most outrageous of chip coolers. This means they only work with operating systems that have drivers to suit them – often, just Windows. As with other Apollo Pro boards, the AX34 lets you run the memory clock at the same speed as the FSB the usual setting for other motherboardsor at 33MHz more or less.
