AX3S Pro Pros: Stable, good set of tweak and overclocking options Cons: Layout a bit Aopen AX3S Pro-U Rating: As befits an Intel board, the layout is clean and conservative. There are several versions of the D; the one we tested included built-in Ethernet and AC97 audio.

Aopen AX3S Pro-U Manuals

The Ethernet simply uses the built-in soft networking capabilities of Aopen AX3S Pro-U ICH2 chip, and the connection to the outside world is made with a discrete Intel-manufactured phy physical layer chip. For example, even a simple streaming test like the one used in Audio Winbench shows a doubling of CPU utilization. In games with 3D positional audio, frame rate hits are noticeable. However, we deactivated both onboard audio and networking for our performance testing. One interesting feature of this Intel board is the presence of a DVI connector directly Aopen AX3S Pro-U the motherboard.

The i graphics core is a capable 2D core, though with extremely limited 3D capability. The integrated Aopen AX3S Pro-U connector allows system builders to configure very compact systems with digital flat panel monitors for applications such as small kiosks in public locations.


Performance was unremarkable, and getting even reasonable performance proved to be quite a chore. After installing the Micron RAM, the DEEA performance proved to be Aopen AX3S Pro-U par with the other boards, although the memory bandwidth scores lagged a tad.

Note that the performance differences between these boards are small, so memory bandwidth is not the deciding factor. The DEEA certainly proved to be a solid, stable platform, running all our tests with aplomb. Being an Intel Aopen AX3S Pro-U, there are no options for tweaking memory or altering clock rate.


Overclockers should look elsewhere. Another exclusive representative is a board with the index "Pro" stands after model's name ; they have a golden heatsink. The "Pro" indicates that this product has some advantage in comparison with its usual brother. Moreover, the company went further: The complete set is also worth to mention: The manual, however, doesn't offer much information. It probably means that the board wouldn't cause you any problems. So, we are going to check Aopen AX3S Pro-U.

It will perfectly suit any good ATX-case. The fact, that the Aopen AX3S Pro-U belongs to ATX form factor, you can feel from the name: For stable work of processors at high frequency the voltage jumps on the supply filter's output mustn't exceed mV at the supply voltage equal 2V.

AOPEN Motherboard - Mainboard

Aopen AX3S Pro-U uF capacitors of this board this figure is equal to mV. After installation of a new BIOS version 1. The Aopen company states that its Pro-version shows even better results. Unfortunately, we couldn't compare the results, since we couldn't fetch this board. As for a cooler installation, on the first look the board seems to have enough space for it. But in practice, we had difficulty in installing even a usual Intel cooler, not to mention Golden Orb.

Another peculiarity Aopen AX3S Pro-U that all slots are shifted to the left side; so, AGP slot isn't located tight to the ports anymore. With this layout an installed AGP-videocard doesn't prevent any manipulation with memory clips.

When developing an electric design of the boards, AOpen used the Frequency Isolation Wall technology. The idea of Aopen AX3S Pro-U technology is the following: A power supply jack hasn't a good location as well. Unfortunately, the AX3S Pro was not quite as stable as past AOpen boards Selecting these different copies of the "same" FSB speed, you can  BIOS‎: ‎Award Modular BIOS PG; AOpen Die. 1 GHz, 10x, FSB MHz, L2 KB, Tualatin, micron, R RBRY / BXF · RKRY /.
