3. Bios

The BIOS is from Phoenix:

In the "CPU Feature", we can disable SpeedStep and allow overclocking capabilities:

In the "FOX Central Control Unit", we can control all the major functions of the board. For our tests, we will set all functions manually, over-riding the auto settings:

FSB can be range from 266MHz up to 600MHz. We will see later on if this is achievable:

The North Bridge chipset controls DRAM. By default, all settings are at Auto. But users can take control and adjust the memory timings for better performance:

DRAM System Memory Frequency has 4 settings to choose from, SPD 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

If you overclock the CPU core, here is a suggested configuration:
