Page 37 The specification of the IDE cable is a maximum of 46cm 18 inches , make sure your cable does not exceed this length. Well, you have if it works, anyway. 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. 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. This seems simple enough, but changing the FSB also changes the speeds at which other buses in the computer run.

Always observe the following precautions before you install a system component. Overclockers also tend to have computers full of fans.

You may change the parameter settings to improve system performance. Four drives only, but no boot difficulties. Any attempts to push beyond product specification are not recommended and you are taking your own risk to damage your system or important data. 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.

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 the case ij yours, the AX34 Pro II is fine.


Inside the tray you will also find some of the best documentation I’ve proo. Well, you have if it works, anyway. The AX34 Pro II features one of the best arrangements around, and when you throw in a couple of neat features like AOpen did, makes for a very nice purchase.

There’s also an optional external switch for the BIOS swapper, which saves you from having to open the case and move the jumper. Add to my manuals Add. The AX34 Pro II also uses four-way memory interleaving by default, if it’s got enough memory “sides” to do it some memory modules are single sided, some are double sided. Since all the switch does is take over the function of the jumper on the three pin header into which it plugs, you could use any dual pole single throw switch to do the same job.

Its very attractive and does a lot to separate this board from the standard green PCBs that other manufacturers are still using. Also in the box are the ATA 80 pin ribbon cable, a normal 40 pin ribbon cable, an extra set of USB ports more laterand the floppy ribbon cable.


Page 30 The driving capability of new generation chipset is limited due to the lack of a memory buffer to improve 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. There’s also the 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.

Don’t have an account? Still, if you’re doing heavy duty 3D rendering or database serving or something else that needs scads of RAM, a four-slot motherboard’s a nice thing to have.

AOpen also refer to this board in their press bumf as “Black Beauty”. Boot fail because of overclocking… 2.
