Aopen AX4C Max 2: Mid-Range Product With A Few Minor Faults, Continued
The packaging of Aopen could stand some more fine-tuning.
The manufacturer dispenses with special gimmicks. There are limitations in terms of sound. If 5.1 Audio is used, the connections for microphone and line are blocked.
Another feature worth mentioning is the dual BIOS function, which is otherwise only available from Gigabyte in this form. The BIOS update was quite difficult to achieve using Windows XP. The tool can only be started if Hyper-Threading has been deactivated in the BIOS. Positive features include the four-phase control device for stable voltage supply and the color-coded pin connector.
