    Calling all BF6 owners and those who want a great mobo

    Is it just me, or is this still one of the best, if not the best overclocking board out there? With all the new chipsets and ata66 boards out there, I have absolutely no desire to trade my BF6 in. As long as I'm running an Intel chip, I'll have this mobo. I have never heard anyone say anything bad about this board. My board is going on 2 years old and it has been 100% stable through tons of different vid cards, cpus, and ram modules. I just thought that this mobo wasn't getting enough props. Long live the BF6!

    Hail to the king baby! The BF6 is still kicking!

    Swedishlf : I bought the P3V4X to replace my BF6 too, but I've switched back since it didn't impress me at all (no go at 150MHz+). I LOVE THIS MOBO TO BITS!

    Don't forget the BE6-2, turning the crappy U66 off it's just a circumcised BF6

    Yeh. I own a BE6-2. Its not a BF6, but its the BF6's Brother. I have never had a single problem with the Be6-2 board in the 1 yr I've owned it. I've taken the cpu out so many times Im begining to worry if I keep it up the socket will get lose. =). Ah well, its still going strong.
    BE6-2 live on forever!!
    Hey, you guys think a 140mhz bus is possible with the BE6-2?

    Here I am! <BF6 comes running in>

    My BF6 has been the best thing since the wheel!

    Apart from the odd agp power issues with my Geforce, my BF6 has been flawless.

    Although I'm getting left behind, I'm gonna stick with this thing till the bitter end.

    Or until games get too slow or choppy

    This overclocked BX runs great!

    BTW: All you BF6 owners, what software do you use to monitor your temps? Cos I cannot find one that mirrors the temps in bios
    Motherboard monitor gives temps way off.

    While on the subject of bios: QJ quickest bios I've found. How about anyone else.

    EDIT BIT: Say hello to my BF6

    BF6.

    Yes.

    Nuff said.

    ...just imagine if it turns out that there'll be a way we could drop a 1.2/100mhz Tualatin into our beloved BF6s and keep right on rockin' 'n' overclockin' right through into 2002!

    Imagine that, my friends...

    (who knows? they said Coppermines wouldn't work in the BX either!)

    I use MBProbe. Downloaded it from tweakfiles. It works well, but you have to play with it to get the right temp reading in the right place. No big deal though. Pretty accurate.
