Thank you for choosing AOpen i865 Family motherboards. AOpen i865 Family Motherboard is Intel® Socket 478 motherboard (M/B) based on the ATX form factor featuring the Intel 865G chipsets (for AX4SG series), Intel 865PE chipsets (for AX4SPE series) and Intel 848P chipsets (for AX4SPB series). As high performance chipset built in the M/B, AOpen i865 Family motherboard supports Intel® Socket 478 Pentium® 4 1.6GHz~3.20GHz. It supports 400/533/800MHz Front Side Bus (FSB) clock andHyper-Threading Technology that brings additional intelligence to systems. In theAGP performance, it has one AGP slot to support AGP 8X/4X mode and pipelinedspilt-transactionlong burst transfer up to 2112MB/sec. For AX4SG series, it integrates VGA Engine in chipset and AGP 8X slot also support ADD cards. According to different customer’s requirements, this M/B supportsDDR266,DDR333 andDDR400 RAM up to 4GB maximum in Dual Channel mode. For AX4SPB series, it only has two RAM slots and supports Single Channel mode with maximum capacity up to 2 GB. The onboard IDE controller supportsUltra DMA 33/66/100 mode andSerial ATA 150 MB/s. There are 5PCI slots provided on this board. A total of fourUSB 2.0 ports on the

back panel and two headers on the board give you the best use of all USB devices with the fancy speed up to 480Mbps.

More than that, on the strength of integrated Realtek LAN controller on board, which is a highly integrated Platform LAN Connect device, it provides 10/100 Mbps Ethernet (for -UL

series, it is 10/100/1000 Mbps) for office and home use. For –Useries motherboards, they do not support LAN onboard.
