De mensen van Ars Technica hadden even niets te doen en besloten ons toen maar te verblijden met een review van het Soyo SY-6VCA moederbord, gebaseerd op de welbekende VIA Apollo Pro 133A chipset. Het moederbord was erg stabiel op standaardsnelheden en de performance was ook goed te noemen. Over de overclockbaarheid (overklokkibariteit?) van dit bord heeft Ars Technica het volgende te melden:
Once everything was set, I started running benchmarks at the stock 500MHz, then started overclocking. I hate to admit it, but overclocking on this board is too easy. I moved the FSB up to 133, booted up and was clocking along at 667. Run all the benchmarks, and overclock up to a 140MHz bus. 'Twas without a hitch until I tried to clear the 140MHz mark. The best I could get was 143MHz, but the board wasn't stable enough to call it worth benchmarking. Here's the cool thing about this board: it keeps the PCI bus as close to 33MHz as it can, automagically. When you choose a FSB, it tells you right there what the PCI will be, as opposed to other boards where you have to do a 1/3 or 1/4 division of the FSB to get your PCI. Once you know what your cards can (and can't) handle, you'll know what FSBs you can use right away. It varies bus speed to bus speed, but rarely ever exceeds 40Mhz below 150+MHz FSB. Speaking of the BIOS, I really like the way it's done on this board.
