It brings along some impressive performance, just like its brothers, and at the same time even more brilliant stability. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. It didn’t take long for that to happen – up until now, all i E boards were Socket based.

FS/FT Abit SH6 & Intel VC w/mb

Sorry to persist, just wanted to make sure. The power supply connector, just like other recent ABIT motherboards, is located on the right edge of the motherboard, so the power supply cables will not have to run over the CPU. And it has an ISA slot too. Those who have been paying attention to processor evolution should remember the decision by Intel to migrate from Socket-7 to Slot-1 a couple years ago when they released the Pentium II.

Anyone Out There With An Abit SA6 or SA6R?

This wide range of FSB speeds provides all the possible clock speeds you could ask for to help overclock your Shh6 to the maximum.

Had to return it since it wouldn’t work with my processor, which I guess is not something to fault it for since it isn’t a production piece. Oh, running win98se, I refuse to use ME.

As you can see from the following pictures, when the motherboard and CPU are installed into the case, there is a lot of space around the processor notice that the cables are not even carefully bundled here so that the HSF can effectively cool down the processor. It didn’t take long for that to happen – up until now, all i E boards were Socket based.

But for users with Slot-1 processors, sb6 think that their BX ait are getting old, but don’t want to go after VIA chipsets or give up their CPUs, the SH6 is definitely a very impressive motherboard and basically your only option right now.

I’ve never been a big fan of on-board stuff excludiing the IDE controlleras it would seem it would be more likely to cause conflicts. I’ve used an Abit SL6, pretty happy with it. Surprisingly, ABIT takes yet another step in stability.

With a ratio of 4: When you want to overclock, heat is one of the biggest concerns. We will talk more about the reasons for this later on, but for now you can see that there are traces all over the place, so ABIT is not wasting any PCB space at all. As processors run faster and faster, keeping the processor cool is abig important in making the system stable. Mon May 21, Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.

The area around the CPU slot is clean without any major obstacles or connectors.

ABIT SH6 Slot-1 iE ATX

Mon May 21, 2: Sep 3, Posts: Mon May 21, 4: Things were not as bad, since manufacturers immediately came up with Slotkets, which allows users to use Socket processors on Slot-1 motherboards. Otherwise it seemed like a BE6-II with a bunch of onboard crap and the i memory timings. I tried it and ripped it off less than 24 hours later. The viddeo was rock solid under our stability tests, even when we ran with a MHz memory clock and enabled the CAS2 setting.

ABIT SH6 – motherboard – ATX – Slot 1 – i815E

I suggest you read www. Test Configuration Processor s: If you aren’t going to use the onboard stuff including the RAID it probably isn’t worth it, esp. All the major cables, including the power supply cables, IDE and floppy cables, are packed on the xbit of the motherboard, so they will not block the expansion cards on the left.
