CTNews heeft een review online gedumpt van Abit's BE6-II moederplank, dat dankzij het Soft Menu III je de keuze geeft uit zo'n 121 bussspeeds. Hieronder wat meer over zijn overklokbaarheid:
The Overclocking Results: The fastest we were comfortable with was at 143 MHz FSB x 5.5 multiplier = 786.5 MHz ! Not bad for a 35E series Pentium III 500! We did need to bump up the voltage and that's why I've lowered the CPU speed back down to it's default for all the other testing now. I do want to keep my PIII running.
The Slot 1 Celeron 400 chip is known to be a little weaker than a PPGA or the PIII's are. It did O/C very well on the BE6-II as opposed to the BE6. We got in much higher FSB setting and loved the voltage adjustments. Cooling becomes a major problem very quickly with the Celeries. We needed to run a double fan with a huge heatsink. Next we removed teh case doors. Then we pointed a couple of oversized (4') fans CPU area of the motherboard to get stability at the 100 MHz FSB settings. The best overall settings, the one's that worked in gaming, and Benchamrking were the 83 MHz FSB settings. When at a multiplier of 6 and Voltage adjustments were bumped up to to ensuer the CPU would POST everything was fine. Results here: 83 FSB x 6.5 multiplier = 539 MHz!
Voltage Regulator Outputs are set automatically but can be changed in the BIOS. Playing with this setting can cause power timing problems. If you don't have the proper rated RAM don't play this game. Our Test Bed (PC133 SDRAM) had no problem with the CAS latency timing set on 2. Again, Wow!
