AOpen AX64 Pro Motherboard - AOpen AX64 Pro Motherboard
Fri Sep 01, 2000 | 2:19P| PermaLink
"I'd decided that I wanted a Via Apollo Pro 133A based board, since I like to back the underdog, and they have a lot of great features that I would want to exploit, like AGP 4x, 1/2 AGP divider, ATA66 support, FSB +/-33MHz RAM settings (we'll get more into that later), and extremely low price. There are some AP133A based boards that don't conform to that last "feature" *cough* Asus P3V4X *cough*, but for the most part, these Via boards are pretty damned cheap. The one that I was planning on getting, fortunately turned out to the be cheapest I could find, the Abit VT6X4, holding steady at $81 at a number of online retailers. Unfortunately, there aren't many reviews of the VT6X4 on the net, but Abit's reputation among the overclocking community preceeds them. Which is something I can't say about Aopen. I've seen a few Aopen products reviewed here and there, but they haven't made a name for themselves in any category like Asus has for stability, and Abit has for overclocking. So will this board from Aopen be their breakthrough achievement, or just another ho-hum product that pushes them further away from the greatness of the other "A" companies? Read on, and find out."
