Review - EPoX BX6 Special Edition

 

 

OVERCLOCKING & BENCHMARKS

Yeah, yeah. I know this is what you've been waiting for so away we go.

I wanted this review to be more realistic so I chose hardware that I think are on the level of what most people use around here. They aren't the meanest and baddest but they can hold their own. I'll be testing the board with the following:

Processors
Intel PIII-600E FC-PGA *
Intel PIII-600E Slot-1
Intel PIII-667 FC-PGA
Intel PIII-450 Katmai
Intel Celeron 366

Slockets
ASUS S370-133 *

Memory
64Mb. EagleTEC PC100 SDRAM
128Mb. TTI (Samsung) PC100 ESDRAM
128Mb. Buffalo (NEC) PC100 Single-sided SDRAM
128Mb. Nanya PC133 SDRAM
128Mb. Apacer (Hyundai) PC133 SDRAM *
256Mb. Mugen (Winbond) PC133 SDRAM

Video Cards
3DFX Voodoo3 3000 *
ASUS V6600 GeForce 256 SDR
Creative Labs GeForce Pro DDR
Guillemot 3D Prophet DDR/DVI

Hard Drive
Maxtor 8.4Gb. UDMA33 5400RPM *

CD-Rom
Creative Labs Infra 48x 7200RPM *

Sound Card
Creative Labs SoundBlaster Live! Value *

* - This was used for the actual benchmarks.

This motherboard, IMO, was made to compete with the Abit BF6, with all the FSB settings and lack of UDMA66 support being common to both. I'll be doing a direct comparison for a later update when I get an Abit BF6 in The Lab.

Also, all tests were run with the box settings. That means that I didn't do any tweaking in the bios except for the processor settings. Everything else was left alone.

All 3DMark2000 tests used a resolution of 1024x768x16-bit Color.
