Asus Commando

3. BIOS

The BIOS is from Phoenix and more or less has the same options as those of the P5B Deluxe. Memory, CPU and SB voltages can be set according to the following table.

BIOS Setting Feature:
CPU Clock Multiplier
6x-13x in 1X increments
CPU bus frequency
100 to 650MHz in 1MHz steps
CPU voltage
1.1000V-1.8500V in 0.0125V steps
DRAM voltage
1.800V to 3.375V in 0.025V steps
PCI Express frequency
90MHz to 150MHz in 1MHz steps
SB voltage
1.050V to 1.225V in 0.025V steps
SB SATA/PCIe voltage
1.50V to 1.85V in 0.05V steps

There are no major complaints with the BIOS. Everything is well organized and the user will find it easy to set the best settings and perform some serious overclocking.
