Page 22: Acorp
Acorp is a medium sized company with a very small profile here in North America. Over half their boards sold are in Europe, and many in Asia. They have a very good manufacturing facility, and I'm sure much of their production is contracted out.
These boards vary in performance but are rarely great performers, on average they are a little below average, as expected from a manufacturer of this type.
Acorp tries to make a stable board, but unfortunately they are often not. Some of their boards have a performance mode which should be avoided all together, as it is not stable. RAM timings are often slightly off, and at best tend to have average stability, its a shame, because the company could be quite popular.
Acorp is one of the worst overclocking boards I've seen. They sometimes offer some features and adjustments, but even then they come close to last on the list.
On the plus side these boards are cheap, almost as cheap as ECS boards but tend to have a few more features. Most places don't stock them in North America so it might be hard to find one to buy.
While Acorp doesn't offer a large number of features, they offer a few different ones like sound, NIC, and RAID, but rarely all in one board. They have offered something similar to the Gigabyte dual bios, but its, in my opinion, a ingenious version of it. They have the 2nd bios chip hidden inside the board.
Acorp's nice manufacturing plant and quality control keeps their DOAs nice and low. As they aren't popular in this area, you don't hear of many problems with them, and as they aren't popular overall, I'd be tough to get a good idea of how well they hold up. From what I've seen its pretty decent.
The website is full and complete, with numerous methods to contact them. Unfortunately for them they didn't want to support the P4X266 chipset board because of a fear of Intel, that was a poor decision, but they do seem to support it now.
Products worth mentioning
Their P4X266 board (4VPX266A)was the first on the market, and its nice to see a company to take risks.
Overall Rating: 4.8/10 They are very cheap boards, but aren't the most stable. I'd say they were an average board with below average stability. Not on my recommended list.
