The Tech Zone heeft een review geschreven van de Abit BE6-II. Deze opvolger van de BE6 wordt geleverd met het verbeterde Softmenu II, die een enorme sloot van 121 busspeed settings heeft:
The number of bus speeds to chose from just blows any other overclocker's motherboard away. You can chose from 66, 68, 75, 83-200Mhz in 1Mhz steps. The only thing that would make it better would be if you can go from 66 to 200Mhz in 1Mhz steps. Bus speeds below 83Mhz uses a 1/2 PCI divider. Above that there is a choice between 1/3 or 1/4 PCI dividers. AGP divider can be either 1 to 1 or 2/3.
The Abit BE6-II is every bit as stable as the old BE6. With the Celeron 366 I was even able to squeeze out an extra 5Mhz over what the BE6 could do. My Celeron 366 can run at 605Mhz on the old BE6 using the 110Mhz bus but would never run stable on the 112Mhz. The BE6-II, with its ability to go up 1Mhz at a time was able to run the little Celeron at the 111Mhz bus, giving me a stable 610Mhz system.
I didn't get much of a chance to play with the PIII-500 on the BE6-II but 635Mhz (127 x 5) is no problem. I think it can go higher but I ran out of time. Still 635Mhz is 15Mhz better than what the old BE6 can do. You just got to love this 1Mhz stepping! There is no better way to find the limit of your CPU. Abit's hold as "king of overclocker's board" seems very safe for now.
