Aopen AX3S Plus - FrostyTech.com Aopen AX3S Plus
Mon Aug 06, 2001 | 12:36A| PermaLink
Bluesmoke has a rather excellent review of the Aopen AX3S Plus motherboard. One of the first motherboard reviews I've seen which goes into the details as far as commenting on MOSFET's and millitary grade resistors.

"A couple of things make the AX3S Plus stand out immediately; the black PCB, the two ATA-100 RAID headers, the 4 168-pin DIMM slots and its hefty size of 12" x 9.5" (HxW). Clearly, AOpen has endowed the AX3S Plus with many features, perhaps to the point of over-endowment :). This size is reminiscent of AOpen's own AK73 Pro (A) which we reviewed in May, and may cause users with smaller cases some grief to install. That said however the general layout of the AX3S Plus is clean, save a few complaints. The ATX power supply header sits close to the right edge of the motherboard, behind the CPU socket. The significance? The power supply cables would run over the CPU, thereby obstructing airflow. This is one of the most common mistakes that have been committed by many manufacturers. It would definitely be better if AOpen had followed the layout of the AK73 Pro (A), moving the CPU socket upwards and placing the ATX power header next to the DIMM slots."
