Has anybody else seen this before? Additional information and specifications are available at Realtek. Has anybody else seen this before? If you require a full-length PCI slot, you will have to use slot 4 or 5. There are additional headers on the motherboard for a 2 nd serial port and a game port, but brackets for the game and the 2 nd serial are not included in the retail package.

Unable to get SATA HDD working with AOpen AK86-L Motherboard
The board itself is a bit smaller than full-size, requiring just 6 stand offs for installation. CPU ratios below rated multiplier can be selected in the a86l of 4x – 16x. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.
Layout of the board is generally very good, although there are a few concessions to the smaller motherboard size. Has anybody else seen this before? Which means it is not possible to install an OS onto it. Generally, we prefer the connectors together on the upper right of the board, but AOpen has placed both the pin ATX and 4-pin 12V together at the upper left of 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 vendor to whom I RMA’d the board have not given me any feedback as to what is wrong. Batteries have been changed, still no solution. Many manufacturers have started leaving ak6l necessity out of the box – forcing the installer to find another PC to create the install floppy.
The slide lock used here is one of the easier-to-use arrangements that we have seen. The vendor to whom I RMA’d the board have not given me any feedback as to what is wrong. While the audio input 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.
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. The AGP slot is also protected by an Wata at the end of the slot that will light if you install an unsupported video card using voltages higher than 1. It is hard to unlatch the pin cable without pushing on the capacitors and risking damage.

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. Batteries have been changed, still no solution. Obviously, it occurred to someone in AOpen engineering that SilentTek was only useful if there were plenty of fan headers on the board.
If you require a full-length PCI slot, you will have to use akk86l 4 or 5. Which means it is not possible to install an OS onto it.

We are more concerned that the large capacitors between the CPU socket and pin ATX are in the way of releasing the pin cable. 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.
Additional information and specifications are available at Realtek. Uncommonly Good by Wesley Fink on March 30, 1: There is plenty of room around the CPU socket to mount most any cooler. A large passive heatsink is used on the Northbridge instead of an active solution used in other designs.
This audio codec features 6-channel sound and UAJ or Universal Audio Jack, with a better than 90db signal-to-noise ratio.
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. The Southbridge has much less to do with the memory controller on the Athlon 64 chip, and sk86l not provide any cooling. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
