Bij 3DHardware kun je een review vinden van de Abit BE6-II, een moederbord gebaseerd op de al wat oudere, maar zeker niet slechte BX chipset. Onlangs bleek uit een test van iXBT dat de BX-borden toch nog als beste uit de bus kwamen.
De Abit BE6-II heeft zeker geen tekort aan overclocking features:
This bios allows you to tweak everything to perfection, every option that you can imagine is there. But by far, this is a bios crafted to precision for overclocking. Allowing 1mhz increments from 83mhz and up (up to 200mhz fsb) the Be6 2.0 is a true overclocker's dream. 145 doesn't work? Well no probs, set the fsb to 144 and hope for the best. The Bios also allows .05 V increments for people taking their CPU's just a bit higher than the default voltage would allow. Also present are the AGP and PCI multiplier settings (1/2-1/4 for PCI and 1/1 and 2/3 for AGP). AGP 1/2 multiplier isn't available due to the BX chipsets limitations, which is slightly a disappointment but not Abit's fault after all. Also available is the AGP 1X 2X setting, which allows you to run some AGP videocards that won't take the 89mhz+ AGP bus. This works quite nicely, but of course you will have the performance hit. The rest of the bios is very nicely layed out with everything in place. A very nice feature that is included is on screen explanations for the whole bios. Yep, you get a little screen to the right which tells you what everything does. This is a real advantage, since this way, you won't find yourself digging through the manual to find out what a certain setting does, you just look to the right.
