3. Bios settings

The BIOS is the usual ASUS. The first tab option includes the system time, date and storage devices:

The second tab includes all major functions to control our board. There are several sub-menus:

Let's start with the system clocks. Nothing fancy here, leave it at default settings:

Passing to the FSB and Memory configuration, we can set the mode between FSB and memory. With the Nvidia 680i SLI, FSB and Memory can be "linked" or "unlinked", giving us more flexibility with overclocking. Note, that the FSB is displayed in QDR, which means, to get the real FSB you have to divide by four:

If the FSB and Memory are linked, there are 4 FSB:DRAM ratios available:

CPU, Memory, NB, SB voltages can be set according to the following table.

BIOS Setting Feature:
CPU bus frequency
133 to 750MHz in 1MHz steps
CPU voltage
0.83125V to 1.9000V in 0.0625V steps
DRAM voltage
1.85V to 3.425V in 0.25V steps
1.2V HT Voltage
1.20V to 1.95V in 0.05V steps
NB voltage
1.20V to 2.75V in 0.05V steps
SB voltage
1.50V to 1.85V in 0.05V steps

memory timings:

and spread spectrums (disable all):
