3. The BIOS

- Bios

The BIOS is from Phoenix and offers more or less the same options as 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-1.7000V in 0.0125V steps
DRAM voltage
1.800V to 2.45V 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
