Kyle van HardOCP heeft meer info over de foute batch BE-Zessen met aangebrande Softmenuutjes.
I was waiting to get some confirmation from the boys over at ABIT on this before starting some kind of scare and now it seems safe to discuss this. Apparently a small group of the new BE6s has a problem with the hardware that will not allow you to tweak the voltage. It seems as if the R59 Resistor will have to be removed from the board. ABIT has said that there are less than 200 of these boards out there.
I am not sure as to how they are going to handle the situation yet, but I am sure ABIT will make good. I have never seen them not treat their buyers right. Just in case you are wondering, I have a BE6 out of that first group that is performing great! [break]Bij Overclockers' Workbench zeggen ze min of meer hetzelfde: [/break] If you have been reading my posts on the net and on this site, ABIT came with a quick solution. This is from ABIT Taiwan.
"..... you have to have the R59 resistor removed." Regarding whether they will collect the bad boards. I am still expecting a reply from them. So come back soon for more news updates direct from Taipei.
We just got of the phone with ABIT USA a few moments ago with regards to some information we recieved from Gary at Overclockin.com and Alex at Motherboard Monitor. It has become evident that some ABIT BE6 motherboards have a problem with the BIOS setting for the core voltage of the processor. Regardless of what this is set at (e.g. 2.1, 2.2, 2.3V DC), the setting always reverts back to 2.0V DC when the BIOS is saved and re-booted
