Not much of a difference here is there? I was surprised to see the Soyo Board with a little edge over the BX6. However, even in the CPU Mark32 column there is only about a 5% differential.

Again, neck and neck... Notice the slight edge however, that the Soyo has, in the video tests, 2D D3D and OpenGL. Interesting as well is the fact that the Soyo lags just a little on the disk side of things.

 Again, a slight lead for the Soyo...
 
Let's wrap this thing up shall we? It was very obvious to me that with our test bench system, the Soyo board was extremely fast and stable. I might also add that setup was totally without a hitch. Something I am not accustomed to when tansplanting the proverbial "heart" of a system like a motherboard. I am very pleased with the quality of this board. It is with only a few minor considerations that I recommend this board to any of you good folks reading intently here. First, if you need to set up alot of 3 wire fans in your system to keep things cool, be careful. You probably will be left a little short with the Soyo. This is just a minor issue as there are headers that were able to be used on this board and you can always tap on to a direct power supply source. Also, if you need to crank the voltage up on your CPU for stability, this board can't help you. However, if your CPU is boarderline stable at default voltage for that overclock you are shooting for, the Soyo SY-6BE+ may just be the type of board you need to smooth things out! Again I can't say enough about the 6BE+'s stability. Supreme...
 
The Soyo SY-6BE+ gets a "Temp-O-Meter rating of...

80 ! Sweet little chili pepper!

 
     
Good Hot Hardware from Soyo Computer. I highly recommend it!
