To a large degree, the BM6 greatly resembles Abit's current flagship product, the BH6 Slot-1 motherboard. A standard ATX format board, the BM6 is slightly wider in order to accommodate both the PGA-370 socket as well as the larger Award/Winbond BIOS DIPP. The board's 3 DIMM sockets support the standard 384MB of 3.3v unbuffered SDRAM, either PC66 or PC100 (choose your RAM based on whether you plan to overclock the CPU or not). You'll also find 2 UltraDMA/33 ports to support up to 4 IDE devices, a floppy port, and the customary ATX backplane I/O set, including 2 serial, 1 parallel, 2 USB, and PS/2 keyboard/mouse ports.
Erg mooi dus, maar de update van vandaag brengt nog veel leuker nieuws: meer busspeed settings en een lagere prijs!
97%> Here's the big one. In our original review, I mentioned that it was unfortunate that the BM6 only supported the standard 112/133Mhz multipliers for FSB, which makes it hard to attempt to overclock 300As past 450Mhz, or 366/400Mhz CPUs. The rekease BIOS (which is included with the currently shipping versions of the BM6)for the board will allow for FSB settings for the following speeds:
Vooral de settings tussen 103 en 112Mhz zijn errug handig. Way to go Abit!
