Higher voltage means more heat. This doesn’t make a huge amount of difference, though; you don’t need to upgrade from Slot 1 just to use a newer Intel CPU. The Pro II accommodates them with three speed-sensing three-pin fan headers, one of them near the AGP slot for after-market video card coolers. 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. But if your RAM can’t manage it, it doesn’t matter with a board like this. And many host based modems have compatibility problems with some other modems.

AOpen AX34 Pro & AX64 Pro – VIA Apollo Pro A Motherboard Roundup – July
AOpen say they’ve paid special attention to the high-speed-operation problem, and the board’s performance bears this out. This means they only work with operating systems that have drivers to suit them – often, just Windows. Overclockers also tend to have computers full of fans. Because the same drivers work with any Apollo Pro A motherboard and the hardware’s essentially identical, there’s no a34 difference in raw performance between them when they’re running the same hardware at the same speed.
First up, it’s got lots of CPU speed adjustment potential, which I’ll deal with in detail in the “Overclocking” section aopwn. But if your Sopen can’t manage it, it doesn’t matter with a board like this. 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.
Socket CPUs can, with a “slotket” adapter, plug straight into Slot 1, and many Slot 1 motherboards work fine with the new chips.
Four drives only, but no boot difficulties. The only issue is a mechanical one – at by millimetres, this is an unusually large motherboard. Xx34 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. Overall Want a top-class Socket motherboard? And very high FSBs – at the moment, MHz still qualifies as “very high” – make large demands on the motherboard design.
Interleaving makes RAM bandwidth look a lot more impressive aoprn some benchmarks, but for desktop computer tasks makes no difference to speak of to actual system performance.
Even with spread spectrum disabled, though, you only get 66, 75, 78, 81 and 83MHz settings below MHz, spund means this board isn’t soumd suited to red-line Celeron overclocking. Spread spectrum’s meant to reduce the radio-frequency noise created by the clock pulses; it seldom seems to make the slightest difference to system performance.
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 coolers.

The last light turns on when the POST is successful. 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. Since all the switch does is take over the function of the jumper on ssound three pin header into which it plugs, you could use any dual pole single throw switch to do the same job. Performance differences between computers with different motherboards, if there are any to speak of at all, come from the motherboards’ extra features, like CPU and RAM overclocking soind faster hard disk interfaces.
Cynics might aoppen that it’s fairly easy to meet, say, Liberian Army computer materials specs.
AOpen are rather more forward about the overclocking potential of their products than most other manufacturers. AOpen’s made another black motherboard. Of course, you can run fans from plain power supply connectors as well; you don’t need to use any motherboard fan headers if aopne don’t want to. As with other Apollo Pro boards, the AX34 aoprn you run the memory clock at the same speed as the FSB the usual setting for other motherboardsor at 33MHz more or less.
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.

And you may well have cause to do so. That doesn’t mean the board’s zound happy running CPUs at stock speed – but if that’s all you want to do, you might as well buy a cheaper motherboard.
But with three-wire fans, the headers let system monitoring software keep tabs on the fan speed, which is a handy feature. Well, you have if it works, anyway.
And many host based modems have compatibility problems with some other modems. Most people don’t have to interpret a BIOS beep code more than a few times in their lives. The Pro II accommodates them with three speed-sensing three-pin fan headers, one of them near the AGP slot for after-market video card coolers. The surface finish on a heat sink that’s primarily cooled by air flow is pretty much completely irrelevant, but it sure looks purty.
