BIOS Continued

All voltages can be adjusted, but I found it a little odd that it was displayed as +amount as opposed to the actual voltage. Doing math in my head.. absurd! CPU voltages could be adjusted in steps of +0.0125V whereas you only got 3 choices with memory voltage (+0.07 V, +0.13V and +0.18V).

Speaking of memory, the standard timings could be adjusted

Finally, we have the monitoring page.

Let's take a look at some bench marks now shall we?

Benchmark Setup

For this setup, we used the following hardware setup with Windows SP2 and the latest drivers:

P4 Prescott 660 LGA 755 (3.6ghz)
1 gigabyte dual channel Kingston ram (4-4-4-12 timings @ DDR2-533)
120 gig Western Digital SATA Drive
Gigabyte X800
M-audio Revolution 7.1

In addition to the three boards we saw here, a DFI925x T2 was also included to provide a more rounded picture of the results.

Let's see how everything stacked up.
