3D Hardware.net heeft een review gepost van de bekende Abit BE6 moederplank. Hier een stukje uit de review:
The layout of a motherboard seems to be less and less important with the ATX form-factor in use. The BE6 uses the standard 5/2/1 layout of most BX motherboards. The two ISA slots (one shared) are blocked from using full-length cards. Though I've not seen a full-length ISA card in more than seven years, they do still exist. The inclusion of ISA slots keeps this board from being PC99 compliant, though the back plate has the characteristic eye-gouging color coding of the PC99 spec. Unlike this board's big brother, the BX6R2, the BE6 has only three DIMM slots, allowing for a maximum of 768MB of RAM. The worst thing I can say about this board's layout, indeed, the worst I can say about the entire package is the placement of the power connector. It's located towards the back of the board, near the Slot 1 connector, meaning the power cords are often in the way of proper CPU ventilation. A minor annoyance, to be sure, but one that may cause problems for some.
An excellent package Abit has put together. This may be the swan song for BX motherboards as Intel's Camino chipset comes into the forefront of high-end PCs in a few months, but with the solidity of this board and the inclusion of some great new features, waiting for Camino or just building a new box is made much easier with the BE6.
It certainly has some issues, but I'd say this is the best board out there for overclocking and I'd stand by that. Nothing else quite compares to the BE6's stability at overclocked speeds, but if you want raw stability and aren't interested in overclocking at all, then this is just like another motherboard.
