Review of Slot 1 Motherboards with Intel 440BX Chipset - Spring 1998

AOpen AX6B

AOpen's AX6B is a solid BX motherboard that is able to satisfy the needs of most people. It did not have any compatibility problems and it runs fine with any SDRAM I used for testing, including the PC66 SDRAM. The performance is average, the feature list is pretty full. The board offers 'suspend to disk' in case you like to do the same as what you may be used from your notebook.

The board offers the full overclocking range. With a convenient adjustment from the BIOS setup menu you can choose FSB clocks form 66 to 133 MHz.

This moterboard did not reveal any particularly outstanding findings, but its lack of weaknesses let it get right into the recommendations list. However, If you are particular about good DIMM slots you may dislike the AX6B.

Get the AX6B if you want to have a stable and reliable motherboard with a lot of features.
