Bij Thresh's FiringSquad is een review te vinden van de Abit BF6 mobo. Dankzij het SoftMenu III is dit bordje errug geschikt voor overclocking. Daarnaast is de prijs ook laag gehouden vanwege het ontbreken van een ATA/66 controller. Hieronder wat resultaten van het overklokken van een Celeron 466:
Next we tried a Socket-370 Celeron 466. After the disappointing 300A results we were initially a little skeptical of the 466 but after running well at 525MHz (7.0x75) we decided to bump it up a bit. After dialing in the next setting (83MHz front side bus) and booting up the system we were pleasantly surprised to see it boot into Windows 98 Second Edition without any problems. Unfortunately, we couldn't get the CPU to run stable at 2.0V so we bumped the voltage up a bit. After a little tinkering with the voltage settings, (we finally settled on 2.2V) we had our Celeron 466 running great at 581MHz! (7.0x83)
We were unable to run our CPU any faster than 581, but happy with our results. Our Celeron 500 didn't perform quite as well. After running stable at 563 (7.5x75) we next tried upping the bus to 83MHz. Unfortunately, we just couldn't squeeze anything out of it, regardless of voltage setting.
Overall the BF6 is an excellent overclocking performer, with the 120 options for front side bus speeds Abit has upped the ante in terms of tweaking. Our Celeron 500 results showed the one small chink in the BF6's armor, lack of bus speeds between 75 and 83MHz. While 563MHz is plenty fast for today's games and applications, we would have enjoyed the option to eke a little more speed out of our Celeron 500.
