Anand heeft een review in elkaar gezet van de Pine Technology BA1-D dual slot1 moederplank. Nou kan ik me voorstellen dat je nog nooit van de fabrikant 'Pine' hebt gehoord. Dat kan wel kloppen, want ze blijken vooral in de OEM en modem business te zitten. Anand geeft de plank een beoordeling van 77/100, dus echt geweldig issie niet:
Contrary to Pine's own spec sheet, the BA1-D is not a jumperless motherboard. The board, by default, performs a B21 state detect meaning it determines whether you are running a 66MHz or 100MHz FSB processor. In the event that a 66MHz FSB processor is installed alongside a 100MHz FSB processor the board defaults to the 66MHz FSB, with no jumper that toggles between B21 states. The board features no additional FSB settings other than the 66/100MHz settings officially supported by Intel for use with the BX chipset, the lack of any overclocking options can be expected considering that most OEMs, Pine's primary source of sales, don't really care about overclocking at all and would rather the potential not be there to save them any tech support calls from users asking why "the 133MHz setting crashed my computer." The clock multipliers are controlled by an 8-pin jumper block adjacent to the secondary IDE connector. The available documented settings range from 3.0x to 5.5x, unfortunately the BA1-D only comes with two jumpers for use on the 8 pins, so if you plan on using the 3x or 4x settings, make sure you have another jumper handy or have a tiny piece of metal to connect two more pins with.
Tja, wat wil je nog minder?
