The technical rep. from ABIT USA returned my call this afternoon and after some discussion he was able to give me all the details on the BE6 motherboard voltage problems as he understood them.
With regards to the initial matter of the BIOS not saving the setting for the CPU voltage. This problem should only occur on a small numbers of initially released motherboards (~200). ABIT will be accepting these boards back for modification or exchange in order to correct this problem immediately. As I indicated in an earlier news update on the page, it is possible for you to correct the problem yourself by removing the resistor located at R59, however this is not high on my recommendation list as it is a surface mount component and if you don't have the proper tools to do the job right, you could do more harm than good to your new motherboard. ABIT recommends that you simply return the board for a newer revision. ABIT also remminded me that any tampering with the resistor would viod the owner's warrenty.
With regards to the second matter of the -5V DC and -3.3V DC on the BE6. We realized a few days ago that software utilities such as Motherboard Monitor were unable to read these voltages correctly and hence could not display them. Well here is the explanation. The current Winbond chip on the BE6 (W83783S) has no spare inputs to physically read these voltages, hence software tools will not be able to recognize them. ABIT will be discussing this matter at a meeting held at the company tomorrow and it may be determined at that stage whether or not the Winbond chip will be changed on the BE6 to accommodate these voltage readings in future revisions of the board. For now you will have to make do without them.
I want to also commend the technical rep. who responded to all the questions that I posed to him and also returned my call the following day with more answers to questions that were left on-answered the day before. His professional attitude reflects well on the company he speaks on behalf of. I have no doubt that ABIT will not let these minor problems tarnish their reputation as one of the premier manufacturers of motherboards on the market today.
