Aopen AK77 Plus: Now It's Stable

DDR For AMD: 16 Boards With VIA KT266
By

Board revision: 48.89A01.011

We got a new bios from Aopen - and now the board is very stable!

At first glance, the Aopen AK77 Plus is quite striking due to its decorative packaging. Upon close inspection, the board also stands out visually: The PCB is completely clad in black, and a special cooling fan adorns the Northbridge of the chipset. An additional IDE controller, the Promise Ultra 100 "Lite", makes it possible to hook up a total of four devices.

Two BIOS chips ensure reliability.

A lock lever on the AGP slot prevents the graphics card from slipping out.
