Companies like Chaintech and Soyo have been able to create quite a bit of demand and popularity for their products by releasing BX motherboards that each offer their own unique advantages over the competition. As nice as it is to have a motherboard that offers a single advantage over a competitor at the cost of another feature being sacrificed, for most users, this isn't acceptable. ABIT to the rescue? The BX6 is an excellent overclocker, however as history has shown us, products can always be improved, it just takes a great company to initiate the improvements.

Floppy port supports up to 2. Two built-in fast UART compatible serial port connectors!! Two built-in USB connectors Page 9: Chapter 2 Installing The Motherboard Installing the Motherboar Chapter 2 Installing the Motherboard This BH6 motherboard not only provides all standard equipment for classic personal computers, but also provides great flexibility for meeting future upgrade demands.
This chapter will introduce step by step all the standard equipment and will also present, as completely as possible, future upgrade capabilities. There are two ways to attach the motherboard to the base of chassis:! Just cut the button portion of spacers the spacer may be a little and hard to cut off, so be careful of your hands. These cables and plugs are usually connected one-by-one to connectors located on the motherboard.
You need to carefully pay attention to any connection orientation the cables may have and, if any, notice the position of the first pin of the connector.
Attach the connectors from the power supply to CONT1. Page Jumper And Switches Installing the Motherboar 3 Jumper and Switches You can set jumper switches on the motherboard to configure various hardware options.
See Figure for jumper locations. Throughout this section, the following symbols are used to indicate jumper settings. For 3-pin jumpers, the symbols below are used: Short Pins 1 and 2 with a jumper cap. Installing a heat sink and cooling fan is necessary for proper heat dissipation from your CPU. Failing to install these items may result in overheating and damage of your CPU.
This program will not be lost when you turn the computer off. This program is also referred to as the boot program. It is the only channel for the hardware circuit to communicate with the operating system. We will explain these options step by step in the following pages of this chapter, but let us first see a short description of the function keys you may use here:!
This feature allows the user to complete more easily the installation procedures. You can install the CPU without configuring any jumpers or switches. For EMC Electro-Magnetic Compatibility Test testing you may want to choose these options for optimal results, we do not recommend you use these "S" frequencies, except for special reasons. If you need to access data stored in this kind of floppy, you must select this mode, and of course you must have a 3 Mode floppy drive.
If you do not really understand each of the options in this menu, we recommend you use default values.
When the external cache is enabled, the system works faster. The default is Enable. When this item is enabled, if the BIOS detects no floppy drive, it will display a floppy disk drive error message. If this item is disabled, the BIOS will skip this test.
Since the parameters of the buffers are closely related to hardware, if the setup is not correct or false, the motherboard will become unstable or you will not be able to boot up. Some special peripherals need to use a memory block located between 15M and 16M, and this memory block has a size of 1M. We recommend that you disable this option. Page 40 Chapter 3 There are small differences in the chipset feature setup according to different motherboard models, but this has no influence upon performance.
Our default setup should be the best one. With this feature, when the computer is powered on but inactive, the power consumption is reduced in order to save energy.
Page 42 Chapter 3 2. Use arrow keys to go to the item you want to configure. The operating system puts devices in and out of low-power states based on user preferences and knowledge of how devices are being used by applications. If no power management event occurs during this time period, meaning that computer is inactive during this period, the system will enter the Doze power saving mode.
Power on by Ring: If you connect an external modem to the onboard serial port, the system will be turned on when a telephone ring-up occurs. This feature is for the operating system which will record and fix the PCI configuration status, if you want to change it. Figure Page Appendix A Quick Installation Quick Installation Appendix A Quick Installation Appendix A will give you a simplified installation procedure, in order to allow you to install your motherboard quickly and correctly.
If you need further information or if you need to change some other settings, start reading from Chapter 1. Note: Be sure that the red line on the cable connects to the first pin of the connectors. Connect the two-threads suspend switch connector of the computer case to correct pins of header on the motherboard.
You can ignore this connector since most of computer cases do not support this feature the motherboard itself supports it. Name of the signal or Name of the signal or Pin number signification Adjust them according to the following recommendations.
Page 62 Appendix A Installing an IDE hard disk does not require a lot of knowledge like installing the driver for a SCSI hard disk, but this means that the user often must install the hard disk by himself and cope with all the problems they may encounter. But this does not mean that you can select the highest mode value as you like. You must be sure that your hard disk supports that type of fast data transfer, otherwise your hard disk will not be able to operate correctly.
Secondary means the second connector on the motherboard, that is, connector IDE2 on our motherboard. Method 1: Set the hard disk drive used for boot up at Master, and the other drive at Slave. Connect one of the connectors of the pin cable to the first drive, another connector to the second drive, and the other end of the cable to connector IDE1 on the motherboard.
Method 1: Set the hard disk drive used for boot up at Master, set the second drive at Slave. The HDD have to be formatted before use. Page 70 Appendix B Figure C Award Flash Memory Writer V7.
SYS, IO. EXE c. Page 76 Appendix D 1. License screen: Notepad will show the content, close the notepad to continue. Page 78 Appendix D 6. It will automatically restart the computer after it has finished installing. When you restart your Windows 95, just follow the step shows on the screens.
It can be used to update the BX chipset motherboard. The following procedure describes how to install and update the PCI bridge. Page 80 Appendix E Step2.

Also check System Device, to find out if four devices are identified as well. Please see the arrows below You have completed all things now. Page 84 Appendix E What does XStore do? The XStore Pro is a hard disk enhancement utility which can improve the system performance. The basic concept is using read-ahead caching algorithm to improve the hard disk performance. Page 86 Appendix F otherwise it will cause system conflict when you install the second bus master driver!
