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. 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 one , keyboard and mouse control, power management and so on. 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. With its built in sound and reasonable price, this board would actually do fine as the basis for a plain vanilla PC, running an old Celeron or something. Not that the Pro II’s particularly expensive.

Discover the magic of the Internet. The main component of DMI is.

Higher voltage means more heat. AMR modems are dirt cheap it’s now possible to buy them soound – only system integrators could get them at first but they’re all “host based modems” that need special drivers in order to work.

It’s a motherboard status panel that mounts in the front of a drive bay and has eight lights to show you how the Power On Self Test POST is progressing, and where it’s stopped, if it fails.

It’s a very intuitive way to see how far the POST got – there are eight lights, and the first seven illuminate from right to left to indicate CPU, memory, video, PCI, audio, hard drive and keyboard status. WindowsWindows ME. But many of them can get surprisingly close.

Price Check, Find Best Price. No manuals, cables or drivers. AOpen’s made another black motherboard.


It’s a built-for-speed overclockers’ board, designed to give you the best possible chance of getting your CPU running substantially faster than the sticker says it should.

When this popular Taiwanese computer gear maker AOpen’s the separate-components division of Acer feels particularly proud of a motherboard, they make a version with a black PCB and a shiny silver heatsink on the main chip. Most people don’t have to interpret a BIOS beep code more than a few times in their lives.

Then again, quite a few Coppermine Celerons are happy at MHz or even a bit more – with, as usual, a bit more voltage and a chunky cooler – if that’s soind case with yours, the AX34 Pro II is fine. It also makes it easy to make use of lower capacity modules from your old motherboard, and add more RAM, without running out of slots.

You don’t need to install all of them in order to boot your system. The surface finish on a heat sink that’s primarily cooled by air flow ax43 pretty much completely irrelevant, but it sure looks purty. 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 a3x4. The AMR slot’s pretty much useless.

It’s got the standard ATX mounting screw holes, but it may be a tight fit in smaller cases. Cynics might suggest that it’s fairly easy to meet, say, Liberian Army computer materials specs.

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 woundor at 33MHz az34 or less. AOpen also refer to this board in their press bumf as “Black Beauty”. Want a top-class Socket motherboard? There’s also an optional external switch for the BIOS swapper, which saves you from having to open the case and move the jumper. 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.


Performance differences between computers with different motherboards, if there are any to speak of at all, come from the aound extra features, like CPU and RAM overclocking and faster hard disk interfaces.

Review: AOpen AX34 Pro II motherboard

There’s no point using the AMR slot for audio, because the AX34 Pro II, unusually for an overclockers’ board, includes ACcompliant plain vanilla audio hardware, with the usual couple of inputs and single output on its rear-panel connector block, and on-board connectors for internal sound sources like modems and CD-ROM drives.
