Azza 815EPX socket 370
Monday, July 30, 2001
Plenty of space has been left open around the CPU socket, which should allow for the installation of large heatsinks.
Memory slots 1 and 2 are located to close to the AGP port, thus creating the chance of a retention bar coming into contact with the graphics card.
Nine 2200Mfds capacitors have been placed around the CPU socket.
The voltage regulation circuits are of the double phase variety.
The ATX connector has been positioned in such a way, and such a place that it will tend to interfere with air flow.
The CPU retention bar is made of metal, so there's little chance of it breaking.
Three fan connectors are included, and all of them are controlled by the hardware monitoring system.
Hardware monitoring is controlled by a Winbond W83627HF circuit.
It's not possible to manually assign IRQs.
The AGP port does not support AGP Pro graphics cards.
The BIOS can be rolled-back to the last batch of valid settings by pressing "CTRL + Insert" at start-up.
