 AOpen AX4B Pro - Preamble
 Date  : Apr 24th, 2002
 Category  : Motherboards
 Manufacturer   : AOpen
 Author  : Jin-Wei Tioh
Earlier this month, we published our Pentium 4 Chipset Roundup detailing each competing Pentium 4 chipset. The DDR-based Intel i845 turned in excellent numbers, generally leading the DDR266 pack. What with the debut of the Northwood core Pentium 4s, which boast huge overclocking potential, the Socket-478 platform is becoming increasingly popular, despite the processors' generally higher price tag.

In our first Socket-478 DDR motherboard review, we take a look at the AOpen AX4B Pro. Note that the AX4B Pro has an older sibling, the AX4BS Pro, which only supports PC-133 SDRAM so be sure you are getting the correct model. Let's take a brief technical overview of the AX4B Pro :
