To me, it's the very best! No problems. P-II 450 @ 527.
Others have had difficulties, I wonder what percentage of the total they represent. Abit is very good about replacing troubled boards.
YEP....I was wondering also the % of those
having troubles. So I thought this little survey might help out. On Anands board there are nothing but complaints/problems.
ABIT BX6R2 post good/bad comments please
If you have this MB up and running, please post any commnts good/bad that you have found. I have this board and will be setting in up in a few days. I'd like to know what
others have found out first and what I might expect. I'm NOT an OC'er so those that stuff doesn't apply to me.
great board, mine has the 300a @ 504 with 2.1v any other bus 103/100/83/75 it will run at 2.0v. also have my cl tnt overclocked to 115 and 105 core. play quake and unreal endlessly, no hangs or crash.
love it, have had the board over two weeks also have mushkin 128 samsung gh ram. fast, very fast.
Great board! Recommend it with no reservations. Running celeron 300a at 464mhz at 2.2 volts, cpu temp avg 90 degrees using waterfall pro.
A definite BUY!
I love the board
I have tested the BX6 II with several ram types without a hitch. Even the Crutial (Micron) memory with the Toshiba ram ran without a hitch. Check out the review of hte BX6 II from the front page
Have had BX6r2 board for 5 weeks and is running great. Very good board.
I have the BX6-r2 and have returned the first one, second one with same problem, cannot run PII 400 @ 100 fsb. Have tested in BH6 and cpu runs fine. Also tried Cel. 300A in BX6 @ 450, and no go, but great in BH6, 3 differnt boards. I find out, the PC100 Micron and Toshiba 128M chip on noname boards I'm using is problem (borrowed friends "cheap" PC100 memory). Getting Mushkin w/Samsung G8 memory tomorrow. Expect problem to be gone, but the memory I have works fine in everything else.
I also had this board running of for 1 week and fine with 300A at 450Mhz. I even run it with my 64MB PC66 TI RAM. No glitch at all.
Since I have 2 300A in hand and tested both is OC to 450MHZ, so I prepare to buy another BX6-2 for my daughter.
I hope the bad experience of the earlier reader is only a limited problem in a specific batch!!
I also upgraded my BIOS to JH last nite, no problem.
generally with the abitbx6 v2 what is the warranty period? The reason I am asking is that I am putting together a new system piece by piece, and if I buy the mobo and don't install it for 2 weeks and I have problems am i screwed?
It depends on where you buy the MB, mine is 1 year warranty.
I talked to Oskar_wu via Anand's BBS and he said Abit would exchange any bad board. I got mine from B&C Computers, http://bcompusol.com/ and they were very good about it, cross shipped and didn't charge for the shipping.
Finally, Abit has another happy customer, me!
I replaced the PC100 mem I had with Mushkin today and it works as advertized. Put the petal to the metal and zipped up to 496 with the PII 400 @ 2.0V. I'll throttle back and am satisfied to run stock and especially without any problem.
I have a 300a(costa rica) and (1)128mb Corsair PC-100 mem chip...Not only have i had a god awful time trying to OC, but now i can't power-on the PC. I think from what i've seen in the bios and on the board and read on the net it's a good board if not the best...think i may have one from a bad batch.
My ABIT BX6R2 sucks when it comes to AGP Video cards. I've tried 3 different ones and it only boots 50% of the time. I suspect the AGP slot/implementation is bad.
I am incredibly unhappy with their lack of knowledge of their own products. When I told them what beep codes were produced as a result of the error, they had to fiddle around and produce the same result--they didn't even know or have a listing of what the beep codes meant.
One more thing about their website. It is plastered all over to "Don't hesitate to send our tech support some email." When I did, I get the automated reply that I should first contact my supplier. Seems a bit contradictory.
