The BIOS is pretty much what we are used to seeing with all nForce2 motherboards with options to select Optimal, Aggressive and Expert performance options.

DFI has conveniently placed all other tweaking setting under a "Genie BIOS" submenu.

DRAM voltage is increasable up to 2.8V

CPU FSB can be increased all the way up to 300mhz, well above the typical 250mhz mark.

Unfortunately though, the chances of you reaching ever close to that level are minimal without a volt mod as the chipset (CPU) voltage is only able to go as high as 1.9V.

Something in the range of 2.2V as seen on the Epox 8rda+ would be nice. As with the mounting holes, it seems illogical to include such high FSB values only to skimp on the CPU voltage control.
