It’s a possible heat accumulating area because of the floppy cable going over the CPU. No ratings or reviews yet. On every test or benchmark, the results point out-right towards the BX chipset. Though this board works well, performance is slacking and minor pauses may occur time to time. This is indeed very puzzling to me. The whole board is based upon the AOpen AX6BC-Pro and a bit of the older AX63 as physically all the layouts is the same and so are the offered features with only the chipsets that have been changed.

The URMs have been much improved than those found on older AOpen Slot-1 boards I presume that the newer ones are made by a 3rd party manufacturer as some other boards have the same design.
The floppy connector is placed right at the back of the Slot-1, the traditional place where AOpen places the floppy and power-supply connectors but at least the big power connector is moved up front but the floppy connector still remains there. Accessing the jumpers and components on the AX63 is fairly simple, the jumperless CPU setup of the AX63 does contribute to its ease of installation, as the clock multipliers and front side bus settings are controlled entirely from within the Chipset Features Setup in the Award BIOS setup.

If this is a board aimed at overclockers, what happened to the 3rd motherbowrd I think we will just have to wait and see.
It’s a possible heat accumulating area because of the floppy cable going over the CPU. The reason I use the word ‘truly’ is because there are some connectors located in front of the 5th PCI and 2nd ISA slots and depending whether you connect them or not, you’ll have access to use full length cards on them. Other than that difference, there is no way you could tell the AX63 apart from the BX based AX6BC other than looking at the printed model number on the board.
Here’s another snip from the PDF manual for a clearer picture of how this feature works: In every category, it is slower and especially in games because the design of motherboxrd AGP-bus or the accompanying drivers isn’t as refined as Intel’s. The xx63 of the rest of the AX63 is perfectly identical to that of the AX6BC, the majority of the empty space on the mainboard is taken up by capacitors that are strategically placed around components that are critical to stable operation of the motherboard.

No ratings or moherboard yet. Suspend to Disk feature was first introduced by AOpen and it’s still available in most of their current motherboards.

In this board, there is an adequate gap between the DIMM slots and the above mentioned connectors but in many other boards those same connectors are nearly flushed against the DIMM slots, causing inconvenience to use the 1st DIMM slot.
