Sun May 20, 5: With a ratio of 2: Have had it for about 4 months now with no serious complaints. Sorry to persist, just wanted to make sure. I tried it and ripped it off less than 24 hours later. It’s just not stable.

For those who had bought a Slot-1 motherboard and CPU that meant they would not be able to upgrade anymore without getting a new motherboard and CPU. I’ve never been a big fan of on-board stuff excludiing the IDE controlleras it would seem it would be more likely abir cause conflicts.
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.

Things were not as bad, since manufacturers immediately came up with Slotkets, which allows users to use Socket processors on Slot-1 motherboards. Now, many boards come within one Winstone point of each other and therefore the need to benchmark boards against each other falls. Even using CAS2 rated PC memory, the motherboard could not maintain any semblance of stability when running the memory at those speeds.
Videp brings along some impressive performance, just like its brothers, and at the same time even more brilliant stability.
Anyone Out There With An Abit SA6 or SA6R?
It’s just not stable. Runs fine even with ME. On the other hand users with PC memory can use the 4: If you aren’t going to use the onboard stuff including the RAID it probably isn’t worth it, esp. Unfortunately for those abih who bought Slot-1 motherboards with those thoughts in mind, the advent of on-die Sy6 cache with the Celeron and Coppermine CPU’s signaled a move back to socketed designs due to their lower manufacturing costs.
ABIT SH6 Slot-1 i815E ATX
But that means I will have to switch to Windows if I want to take advantage of it. Sorry to agit, just wanted to make sure. Sun May 20, 5: I don’t have the raid version, but am using a Promise Fatrack controller in it with zero trouble.
To do that, you might choose to install a larger HSF unit.
The Test & Conclusion – ABIT SH6 Slot-1 iE ATX
Its a nice motherboard from what I can tell. The Test In recent times, choosing a motherboard cannot be completely determined by a Winstone score. Post Your Comment Abti log in or sign up to comment. Nov 30, Posts: Obviously for users with Socket processors, the SH6 will not be on their shopping list.
Finally, there are three fan connectors on the motherboard, which can also be monitored through the PC Health panel. Therefore you shouldn’t base your decision entirely on the benchmarks you see here, but also on the technical features and advantages of this particular board, seeing as that will probably make the greatest difference in your overall experience.
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. Jun 17, Posts: As processors run faster and faster, keeping the processor cool gideo very important in making the system stable.
Mon May 21, 3: Keep in mnd that I use pricewatch to find the lowest prices and then go to ResllerRatings. I’ve used an Abit SL6, pretty happy with it. Not many people own or use SA6R’s Instead they offered SoftMenu II, which lacks quite a few features that the 3rd iteration does have. Slot-1 looked to be the way of the future for Intel CPU’s.
