Estimated retail price: $119.99

Abit has aimed to make the most tweakable motherboard ever since the term overclocking was given form. With the latest incarnation of their jumperless i440BX monster, the BE6, they have nothing to lose. But can I honestly say I was as happy with this product as with past motherboards from Abit? I, along with you, will settle for nothing less, but the unbiased truth...


Because I could list two pages of specs on this puppy, I will just list the certain specifications that usually fluctuate from motherboard to motherboard.
