Note that I’ve penalized the Stability rating to 3-star due to the video-related issues. Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. On board KB L2 cache One 5ns chip. MMX and overclocked it to but I was using 2. Noticed there is no AGP slot? By right, there should be a more visible difference using the older but more superior MVP3 chipset. The built-in Trident Blade3D is surprisingly sharp in Windows for it’s Mhz RAMDAC at x, though not like a Banshee, V3 or TNT, it’s quite close to that, but don’t bother with resolutions higher than that, unless you don’t mind headaches from it’s lofty output at higher resolutions.

This is the first time that 3DMark99 hanged on my system. Windows 98 Bus Mastering Drivers. Once you’ve setup your system, power it up and you’ll be greeted to an AOpen logo at the corner of the RAM-test screen instead of the energy-saver logo.
Sad to say that it has too little enhancements to be called the MVP4 but rather MVP3e or something else with the number 3. With the recent release of the i chipset from Intel, emphasizing more on integration by having on-board Audio and Video using their new AHA-Hub architecture and AC97 links, VIA too launched their own version which they had planned long before Intel but only delivered nowthe MVP4 chipset.
It very well was the video-card drivers and the Trident Blade3D core because no other video-card combination and drivers has hanged my system. Now this feature is similar to that of the i chipset. I would say that it’s a very interesting board to overclock indeed. Test Configuration Processor s: The build quality and overall operation of the board is very good but it’s badly let down by a bad video-core from Trident when did you ever hear someone boasting that he or she has Trident?
Notice that I said there is a COM-2 connector on the board? Even the SB16 sounds better and more constant if you ask me. How unfortunate that we can’t use our own Aipen video-cards to expand the capabilities of this board. Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star.

It used to be that the ATX and floppy connectors are located way behind, like in the AXPro but things got better and AOpen managed to bring the power connector to the front of the board. Even though the faults I’ve occurred are due to bad drivers, the overall gaming speed is slow! The built-in Trident Blade3D is surprisingly sharp in Windows for it’s Mhz RAMDAC at x, though m5x9 like a Banshee, V3 or TNT, it’s quite close to that, but don’t bother with resolutions higher than that, unless you don’t mind headaches from it’s lofty output at higher resolutions.
Windows 98 build m5x9. Note that I’ve penalized the Stability rating to 3-star due to the video-related issues. It uses the old UMA method to use system memory for the video-card’s functions. Sound is a little soft and not fluent as a dedicated card. The board was damn stable in Windows operation. Fortunately you can disable the on-board codec in the Bios in favor of a better, dedicated sound-card. There are no manuals but there is a quick-install guide.
Talking about stability, I used a P. Get into the Bios and load up the Optima-Settings and then adjust minor parameters related to your own setup and you’re done! On board KB L2 cache One 5ns chip. AOpen did it finally! So, as of now don’t expect good 3D games compatibility and besides it is slow!
Voltage setting range from 1.

MMX and overclocked it to but I was using 2. As usual, this requires your processor to do the sound processing while the codec just supplies the information for the CPU to aaopen.
Noticed there is no AGP slot? The floppy connector is in front! Only now, in this board, the floppy connector has been brought to the front of the motherboard too. All the benchmarks in this section show that the original AXPro reigns in performance!
