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
DRAM voltage
1.800V to 2.55V in 0.05V steps
PCI Express frequency
100MHz to 150MHz in 1MHz steps
SB voltage
FSB Termination voltage
1.20V to 1.50V in 0.10V steps
NB Voltage Reference
NB Voltage

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