As you will see in this review, this is certainly not the case. This conversation is currently closed to new comments. FIC did not include any features that would require such a large PCB, so it’s a bit of a surprise that they’ve stuck with such a design since a larger PCB has the disadvantage of not fitting in some smaller cases and also increases the overall cost to manufacture the board. Clockometer allows one to change overclock-related settings directly from the Windows desktop instead of jumpers or even from the system BIOS. I had two calls on Gigabyte boards with AC A printed manual is included and covers the necessary topics for motherboard configuration. Ok, start simple, first try rotating the cdrom cable at the soundcard or the cdrom degrees unless it has a key to keep you from plugging it in incorrectly as a check.

If you can even get your board to load Windows at this setting, then consider yourself either very lucky or incredibly gifted. As you will see in this review, this is certainly not the case.


The little “A” at the end of the chipset designator made a world of difference when it comes to overclocking the processor.

It was basically the chipset that began the craze toward the AMD Thunderbird and made it so popular with the enthusiast crowd. How much would they cost? But if you say it wont work, then I’ll take your word for it before buying a new processor. This time around they have the AZ11E, which is an enhanced version of the AZ11, with more features and better performance.

Which one would you choose for a desktop? I opened the case, he went and got the card. And you can see that the layout of the board is very different, meaning that FIC has spent quite a bit of effort optimizing the routing of traces. Being part of the first batch of KT boards, the AZ11 attracted much attention. Our test sample included the Audio Alert II daughter board which provides for voice diagnosis on startup. After several boards with multiplier ratio settings, it seems that reaching Sometimes the most obvious is the easiest to overlook.

FIC AZ11E – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT133 Series

A printed manual is included and covers the necessary topics for motherboard configuration. At one customer, we were very pressed for time. When will motherboards with chipset be out? I am suspicious that there is a bug in the driver. The limitations allow only for a xx16 image but the feature in itself is rather neat. This az1e is currently closed to new comments.


Usually, you will raise the core voltage step by step to be sure that you do not damage the CPU – having these settings controlled by dipswitches will further complicate an already complicated procedure for many.

As processors generate more and more heat, ventilation around the CPU has become especially important for good cooling.

FIC AZ11E Socket a 462 Motherboard

It’s cheaper to have a single board design rather than two different ones. Thanks for your reply. Having the power supply connector fid where it is now means that the power cables will have to run over the memory and the CPU, thus potentially blocking airflow.

Interesting Question about FIC AZ11e board

Though the chipset itself has remained pretty much constant aside from a minor Southbridge revisionhost motherboards have been going through good deal of change in a relatively short amount of time.

Basically, the AZ11 had “issues”. Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill My Toys. I will try your suggestions.
