Thermistor concerns for the overclocker. While Abit read our minds and made a motherboard that takes care of all that soldering and drilling for us, we still need to worry about how well something that’s this big of a hack actually works. We had 3 BP6 boards at our disposal, accessorized with lovely Celerons of the , , and varieties. Let’s take a look at what happens when the overclocking king meets the reality of the dual processing world The Abit BP6 was an excellent board back in the days. I didn’t know anything about capacitors back then. We know that many of you might not care about how the board works under the BeOS, so we’ll try to deal with issues one at a time.

We’ve tried to compartmentalize parts of this review to make it easy to navigate. Whispers around the web.

ATX Form Factor, built-in hardware monitor As you can see, this isn’t a lean motherboard by any stretch of the imagination. Being able to tweak the voltage on both CPUs is a real bonus. Those cakes make you sick I tell We had 3 BP6 boards at our disposal, accessorized with lovely Celerons of the, and varieties.

Although it is a highly idealistic approach when applied to many situations, that is the philosophy of one mainboard manufacturer that is truly a rags to riches story to tell the tweaking children of the future.

There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. Let’s take a look at what happens when the overclocking king meets the reality of the dual processing world Let me just say that qbit cool.

Not many games that will run on those boards are SMP capable, either. When enabled, it dramatically reduced the memory bandwidth measured in memtest But we wanted to take a different approach in our review.

I had one, and it was fast, stable and well designed, but as somebody else said, watch out for dried out caps. In ablt way this wasn’t user friendly though, because that aabit was enabled by default, and it really needed to be turned off to get the BX performance at it’s best.

I know that most of you already know all about Abit’s SoftMenu, but I’m gonna lay out a little description for the uninitiated. I personally don’t like anything between 75 and 93MHz. Abit continued their fine tradition of raising eyebrows when they released the BP6, an iBX motherboard that offered two, count ’em, 2 ready-fer-SMP Sockets.

Best to look close at photos before buying though. Likely to need capacitor replacement.

ATX Form Factor, built-in hardware monitor. But they’re not the only one to offer such jumperless feature though. DOS and Win9x can’t do it. And even more importantly, should anyone spend any time trying to overclock it?
