BH6 Pentium II AGP Based ATX Mainboard With CPU SOFT MENUTM II Technology

ABIT's BH6 is the Intel 440BX based mainboard for SOHO or multimedia environments. It includes One AGP, Five PCI and Two ISA to handle all of your expansion needs. It also has official support for Intel's newest Pentium II 350 ~ 450MHz processors running on the 100MHz system bus as well as being backwards compatible to support Pentium II 233 ~ 333MHz processors. It has all the specifications for PC97 such as Ultra DMA/33 support, ACPI power management, AGP spec Rev. 1.0 for improved 3D graphics performance at a lower cost, infrared support and comes with hardware monitoring of fan speed, voltages, and system temperature capabilities. The BH6 comes with Three DIMM sockets providing enough main memory capacity for business computing, 3D gaming, multimedia applications and CAD/CAM applications. The BH6 also implements Soft MenuTM II technology that eliminates all jumpers on the mainboard that set CPU parameters, allowing end-users to easily and correctly install or upgrade their own Pentium II processor with MMXTM technology.
