FIC has also implemented an optional 6-pin ATX power connector that offers power supply fan speed monitoring and control for power supplies that offer such capabilities. The modifications were not particularly easy to perform, keeping this market somewhat limited, but ABIT took a big step towards broadening that market by releasing the BP6 , a dual Scoket motherboard using the iBX chipset. Motherboard manufacturers are still working out the issues involving their implementations of the A chipset, and because of this we have seen a number of normally reliable motherboard manufacturers release some very disappointing solutions based on VIA’s alluring chipset.

Creative Labs CT sound is optionally integrated on the motherboard and provides a basic PCI audio solution for those that don’t need some of the more advanced features available with dedicated PCI sound cards. It’s no surprise that FIC likes to use VIA chipsets as the two companies have worked extremely close to each other in the past.

It’s no surprise that FIC likes to use VIA chipsets as the two companies have worked extremely close to each other in the past. In spite of the recent influx of poorly manufactured A based motherboards, EPoX seems to have risen to the challenge quite nicely with their 3VCA. Fortunately, we did not notice any heat pr133a issues in our evaluation sample.

While we have pr1o33a A apollk motherboards that feature a Slot-1 connector combined with a Socket connector ala Tyan Trinity as well as those with simply a Slot-1 connector, the 3VCA is the first we have seen with solely a Socket interface.

With the exception of a handful of manufacturers such as Gigabyte and ECS, most of the boards we tested just 5 months ago varied in performance so greatly that it reminded us of the way the motherboard industry was during the Socket-7 days of the FX po133a HX chipsets.

Creative Labs CT sound is optionally integrated on the motherboard and provides a basic PCI audio solution for those that don’t need some of the more advanced features available with dedicated PCI sound cards. Initially, we had quite a bit of trouble with this board, but after a couple of revisions from FIC, it’s currently a decent choice for an Athlon motherboard.

Ever since the advent of the LX chipset you really didn’t have to worry about whether or not the board you were picking up would perform like a speed demon or a piece of junk, but our last Apollo Pro A roundup proved that statement wrong.

Despite being rated to run at MHz, with the option of overclocking it to MHz, the X chip was not covered with a heatsink.

With the price of Intel processors constantly dropping, and operating systems such as Windows and Linux supporting multiple processors, dual processing is becoming more and more common. Making use of a physically smaller in length Socket apolloo, you would expect the 3VCA to be a noticeably smaller motherboard when compared to the Slot-1 A solutions we’ve looked at in the past.

As always, getting the right motherboard is quite possibly the toughest, and quite possibly most important, part of your decision making process when you still building your system. Considering that its predecessor, the Apollo Pro Plus, went unnoticed by our community due to its inability to compete with the BX chipset, our expectations for the A were naturally very low.

The modifications were not particularly easy to perform, keeping this market somewhat limited, but ABIT took a big step towards broadening that market by releasing the BP6a dual Scoket motherboard using apo,lo iBX chipset. Keep in mind that this motherboard has been in the market for quite some time, yet it still manages to be a good pick.

Therefore in ;ro133a coming weeks, we will try to review some of the most common dual Socket motherboards available today and find out which one is the best.

As with most pro133aa PC motherboard manufacturersEPoX was formed back in the late 80’s but only in the past few years have their products been brought into the public eye, mainly because of the advent of the Internet as medium for free marketing for those companies that can produce high quality products. Introduction VIA’s Apollo Pro A chipset has been around for 9 months now and in that time, it has become much more of a contender than we originally expected it to be.

Nevertheless, it took quite a aopllo before the Apollo Pro A was actually available on a dual processor board. Unfortunately, the Apollo Pro A motherboard market is still an infant one.

FIC carefully laid out the board to allow full length cards to sit in any of those expansion slots. While this may not seem like the most useful feature, it is unique nonetheless.

FIC has also implemented an optional 6-pin ATX power connector that offers power supply fan speed monitoring and control for power supplies that offer such capabilities.

While EPoX isn’t at the very top of the list in terms of quality they have always been better than average, which for those users not running high end workstations or servers pri133a generally enough to get them through their tasks.

This isn’t the case as EPoX uses the saved space to help clear up some of the clutter normally associated with boards that are this crowded.
