AK86L SATA DRIVER

AOpen has a really effective smart fan control system and they also thoughtfully included five fan headers on the board – four 3-pin headers and one 2-pin temp header. No matter what agp card, no matter what memory and in which memory slot, the board won’t switch the monitor back on after restart.

Unable to get SATA HDD working with AOpen AK86-L Motherboard
The vendor to whom I RMA’d the board have not given me any feedback as to what is wrong. Uncommonly Good by Wesley Fink on Xata 30, 1: We are more concerned that the large capacitors between the CPU socket and pin ATX are in the way of releasing the pin cable. AOpen has a really effective smart fan control system and they also thoughtfully included five fan headers on the board – four 3-pin headers and one 2-pin temp header.
Batteries have been changed, still no solution. Uncommonly Good by Wesley Fink on March 30, 1: LAN connections have moved from added cards to an on-board feature, and we now are starting to see Gigabit LAN become more common, even on boards designed for the mid-to-low price range.
Layout of the board is generally very good, although there are a few concessions to the smaller motherboard size. Many manufacturers have started leaving this necessity out of ak86k box – forcing the installer to find another PC to create the install floppy.
AOpen and several other manufacturers are now using color-coded connectors for the case connections. CPU ratios ak8l6 rated multiplier can be selected in the range of 4x – 16x. Has anybody else seen this before? There are additional headers on the motherboard for a 2 nd staa port and a game port, but brackets for the game and the 2 nd serial are not included in the retail package.

I’ve returned the original board and bought another one, both boards have displayed the same trouble, and have both displayed cmos checksum error, default values loaded.
However, we did not have any overheating problems in our benchmarking.
Fortunately, all 3 connectors are on the right edge, so they do not interfere with other components on the board. The Athlon 64 and FX51 boards use a standardized ATX plus 12V connector arrangement that is identical to the power connector requirements of current Pentium 4 systems. The color coding and clearly marked polarity make it a little easier to get the connections right the first time.

While the audio sataa and output options are very good, please keep in mind that you must find and put in additional brackets to use many of the audio options. Obviously, it occurred to someone in AOpen engineering that SilentTek was only useful if there were plenty of sara headers on the board.
The Southbridge has much less to do with the memory controller on the Athlon 64 chip, and does not provide any cooling.

This audio codec features 6-channel sound and UAJ or Universal Audio Jack, with a better than 90db signal-to-noise ratio. The AGP slot is also protected by an LED at the end of the slot that will light if you install an unsupported video card using voltages higher than 1.
Generally, we prefer the connectors together on the upper right of the board, but AOpen has placed both the pin ATX sataa 4-pin 12V together at the upper left of the board. There is plenty of room around the CPU socket to mount most any cooler. The Southbridge also remained cool during benchmarking. Which means it is not possible to install an OS onto it. A large passive heatsink is used on the Northbridge instead of an active solution used in other designs.

The large number of fan headers will be appreciated by anyone with multiple cooling fans. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. Batteries have been changed, still no solution.
