3. BIOS setup

The BIOS is based on the Phoenix implementation:

Under the overclocking Navigator Engine tab, we can control all the major functions related to voltages and clock speeds.

There are three pre-defined overclocking settings, (V6 Tech - 10%~15%, V8 Tech - 15%~25%, V12 Tech - 25%~30%), but for our tests we will set all parameters manually.

The FSB can be raised as high as 600. We will see later on if this really possible:

The DRAM Frequency only has 4 settings, from Auto to DDR2-800MHz.

Each setting represents a different FSB:RAM ratio, so be careful what you select:

  • DDR2-533 (1:1)
  • DDR2-667 (4:5)
  • DDR2-800 (2:3)

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

BIOS Setting Feature:
CPU Clock Multiplier
Not possible to set
CPU bus frequency
266 to 600MHz in 1MHz steps
CPU voltage
1.10000V to 1.80000V in 0.00625V increments
DRAM voltage
1.90V to 2.60V in 0.10V steps
PCI Express frequency
Auto, Fixed 100 MHz
i965 MCH voltage
1.25V to 1.55V in 0.10V steps
FSB voltage
1.20V to 1.50V in 0.10V steps

The North Bridge chipset controls the DRAM. By default, all settings are set to Auto. Of course, users can take control and adjust the memory timings as desired:

The Hardware monitor is valuable in determining the running temperature, voltages and fan speeds on your system:
