But because the largest dimm size supported is MB, it depends on the number of dimm slots of your board. Skip to main content. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.

The ATX power connector is unfortunately located at the back of the board, next to the Slot-1 connector.

ABIT BE6 i440BX Slot-1 ATX

These modules use ram chips organized as 32Mx4 see question ” What module sizes are supported on my bx-based board? So what is this new BE6? I could be dreaming, but I was sure someone came out with such a board when the MHz coppermine P3s arrived and P4 omtherboard still a dog.

Complaining about ABIT not including any other AGP ratios is quite futile as the motherboard has nothing to do with the AGP frequency, which is actually stored in the chipset itself and only selected through the motherboard, leaving the 1: All other MB modules which have 8 or more chips should work since they are based on either Mbit or 64 Mbit technology. Apr 22, Posts: Newer MB modules might have only 4 chips organized as 16Mx16, and they will not work at least not with their full capacity on boards based on the bx chipset since the bx chipset doesn’t support Mbit ram chips.


RAM FAQ for boards based on the ibx chipset

Thanks to delays of Intel’s next generation i chipset and the sky high price of RDRAM, the iBX chipset has survived a lot longer than anyone predicted. The AGP speed thing was already covered.

With other manufacturers catching up in the overclocking race by providing the above features, ABIT has gone with something different on their most recent iBX boards. Wed Mar 21, 9: Skip to main content. But usually the term double-sided refers to the logical organization of the ram chips synonym as banksnot the physical placement of the chips.

Such modules won’t work, they look quite similar from a chipset perspective to type 1but they require the so-called “8k refresh” and the bx chipset only supports up to 4k refresh. They are mostly used in cheap generic ram an exception are registered ram modules, where such chips seem to be quite common and where they shouldn’t cause any problems in a board with a chipset which supports them – but unfortunately the bx does not.


The bx chipset indeed has support for EDO memory, but most boards don’t an exception to that are the bx based boards from supermicro.

You won’t be able to get mhz FSB without a lot of fiddling. Since the ram interface calls for 64 bit data width, 8 chips are needed to form one ram bank.

Mouse over to Zoom – Click to enlarge. The good motyerboard is the board “probably” has 4 memory slots and 4 x can be found dirt cheap. Read on to find out more It is most likely slot 1 but might be new enough to be s That means that the power cable will have to run over the CPU and memory, reducing airflow to the CPU and cluttering up the inside of the system.
