AGN Hardware heeft de Abit BE6 moederplank eens getest, met onboard support voor ATA 66, errug handig. De review van deze "overclockers board" vind je hier.
Since the release of the BH6, overclocking has became a need for countless computer lovers such as ourselves all around the world. The BH6 took away the need for the pain in the behind jumpers, and allowed us to set the speeds of the CPU and more through the comfort of the motherboardís bios. It has been over a year since a release of the BH6 and not many things have changed with Abitís motherboards. The new BE6 is still very overclocking friendly, allowing you to do about anything that your CPU can handle without very much work to your computer. There has not been many enhancements though, considering the fact that you will be able to overclock your CPUs on your BH6 just as easily as the BE6.
Now this may change in the future as speedier processors come out with higher needs for your FSB and multiplier. With the multiplier running as high as 8 and the FSB running up to 150, you could theoretically run the computer at 1200MHz. (Just make sure you have a fire extinguisher nearby) For those of you who do not plan on super cooling your computer there is also support for 112/115/120Mhz FSB for getting a little higher performance on the PIII or other supposedly 100MHz FSB processors. Armed with my PIII 500 processor I was able to get the system to work properly at 115MHs FSB for a top speed of 575MHz. On the Celeron Side of things my 400MHz Celeron on a Slocket was running at 498MHz with no problems, not bad for an inexpensive motherboard. I did try to move both the Celeron and the Pentium III to higher speed with no luck, resulting in leaving having to hit the CMOS discharge jumper to bring the computer back to life.
