I am looking to replace a faulty BH6 motherboard. A look at the Abit site shows two motherboards which appear to be suitable - the VH6T and the SL6.
I have always used Abit boards and am reluctant to change to a different manufacturer.

I will be transferring a Celeron II 566 (8.5 x66) overclocked to 850 (8.5x100) plus two PC100 64M SDRAM and a single PC100 128M SDRAM.

The Celeron has been rock stable at 1.7 volts and only gets warm to the touch with the standard heatsink and fan.

Apart from the obvious (different chip sets) the boards appear to have very similar facilities and would appear to allow me to overclock as above. The VH6T has an ISA slot but I do not require this. Given that the VH6T is quite a bit cheaper than the SL6 is there any advantage in going for the more expensive motherboard.
