If you are building an older gaming computer this is a good one to pick.

  • Summary: At the time this board was made it was one of the fastest Motherboards around. I had one of these boards back then and I am setting up a computer to use it. I have owned several Abit motherboards and this is one of the best.

Great legacy motherboard!

  • Summary: I had a bunch of old components on the shelf including a Powerleap adaptor. Put in all the old parts and fired the board up. Perfect for an older person just wanting to do email and web reasearch.

Happy Birthday to my BE6 II

Wile-E, Ciao
7 August 2001
  • Excerpt: "My BE6-II is one year old, one year of solid use and a degree of abuse! It's the best board i've used by a long shot. My old Celeron 333 (slot 1) ran at 475mhz on this board and I grinned a big grin. Then a 633 fc-pga went in (on a socket convertor) and it's been running at 855mhz since December 2000. I've got 2 hard-drives, cd-drive, cd-rewriter, network card, modem, agp graphics card, sound card, scanner, printer, usb mouse and a host of other ...
  • Pros: Probably the best board ever to come out of ABit
  • Cons: Try finding one now  : (

Abit win again

mikewhite, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "I bought this mobo last summer from DABS. At the same time I got a "flip-chip" (socket kind) PIII 700 and a slocket to allow the two to work together (the board itself is designed for Slot based chips). Initial set up was very straight forward (just follow the manual's setup section page by page to make sure you don't forget anything) and initial power on gave me a fully working system. My main reason for choosing this board was its ease of overclocking. ...
  • Pros: Easy to setup, well documeneted, great for overclocking
  • Cons: Highpoint IDE controller

BE6 - Hey ! They're not all that bad

C4RTM4N, Ciao
17 September 2000
  • Excerpt: "...someone else's opinion on the Abit BE6 I felt compelled to write with my thoughts. I bought a BE6 (original version) in October of last year as an upgrade to my BX6 mainly due to it supporting udma66 and have to say had no problems with it's stability, overclockability or anything else with just one exception - the udma66 support. As the BE6 is configured to use different connectors whether you use udma33 or udma66 things can get quite confusing ...
  • Pros: Fast, Overclocks easily
  • Cons: UDMA66 support is a bit dodgy

Abit BE6: Overclock this!!!!!!!!!

flymo, Dooyoo
10 August 2000
  • Summary: A motherboard is the main choice in my eyes for deciding what your computer is going to be. It wont matter if you have a P3 500mhz or 800mhz, if your motherboard is not good then your system will be held back. To start you always look at what the board has and this board has it all. It is a very future reliable board as it can support processor bus speeds upto 150mhz(P2 runs@66mhz, P3@100mhz/133mhz). This is a non-Athlon board as it is not suitable for them.
  • Pros: Lots of options, overclockable and long term usable.
  • Cons: Price.

Best motherboard I ever used

Dooyoo
9 August 2000
  • Summary: I have fitted this brand of motherboard into my new computer system consisting of the Pentium III processor and this motherboard comes with a huge 5 PCI slots and 2 ISA such that I can fit all my cards without any problems. Installation is easy and in less than an hour I got the entire system running. This brand of motherboard can handle the variety of PCI cards which I used: graphic card, sound card, TV tuner card and modem card. And it is running extremely stable.
  • Pros: stable, reliable
  • Cons: pricey

Quality Motherboard

smartblok..., Ciao
11 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "I purchased this board approximately two months ago, after many hours scouring the internet for reviews, ratings and opinions about which was the best motherboard for my newly purchased Pentium III 550. A number of factors swung the decision to the Abit, including the ability to change all bus and multiplier speeds from the bios without having to fiddle with jumpers. On receiving the board I was pleasantly surprised to see the amount of documentation ...
  • Pros: Speed, Ease of installation
  • Cons: None obvious
