3. The BIOS

The BIOS is familiar if you have used Asus boards before:

The Advanced Tab includes all the "goodies"

Entering the Jumperfree submenu:

While the latest (beta) 0404 Bios added more features (FSB Strap to North Bridge):

The DRAM Frequency has four memory dividers:

  • DDR2-533 (1:1)
  • DDR2-667 (4:5)
  • DDR2-800 (2:3)
  • DDR2-889 (3:5)
  • DDR2-1067 (1:2)

What's rather convinient, is that as you overclock, more DRAM memory dividers become available, that help squeeze every drop from your memory modules:

Intel's P35 chipset offers 1T and 2T DRAM command rate. This should provide very good memory performance, in case your memory module supports 1T:

If you need to set the DRAM manually, many options are available:

There are many options in the BIOS to set voltages too:

BIOS Setting Feature:
CPU Clock Multiplier
6x-13x in 1X increments
CPU bus frequency
200 to 850MHz in 1MHz steps
CPU voltage
1.1000V-1.7000V in 0.0125V steps
CPU PLL Voltage
1.50/1.60/1.70/1.80V
DRAM voltage
1.800V to 2.55V in 0.05V steps
PCI Express frequency
100MHz to 150MHz in 1MHz steps
SB voltage
1.05/1.20V
FSB Termination voltage
1.20V to 1.50V in 0.10V steps
NB Voltage Reference
0.61/0.67x
NB Voltage
1.25/1.40/1.55/1.70v

Finally, more BIOS options. Rather unusual that you can set the CPU Ratio from both the JumperFree and Advanced tabs:
