MSI uses an updated version of the Award BIOS and it looks
like they have exclusive rights for it because they're the only manufacturer that uses
it we know of. There aren't many memory tweaks, only CAS Latency
adjustments and memory frequency options. There are quite a few overclocking options
Not exactly the most fun BIOS. RAS to
CAS, DRAM CMD Rate, etc are all taken care of now by the Timing Setting Mode.
You can't adjust the AGP mode in the BIOS, it's all auto.
I'll get to the DRAM frequency in a
moment. You can adjust the FSB from 100 MHz to 200 MHz in 1 MHz increments. You
also have the ability to lock the AGP/PCI speed, CPU Vcore goes up to 1.6V (for
NW processors) and DIMM voltage can be up'ed to 2.8V.
The ability to set many different memory speeds
is really this motherboards strengths. There are 16-17 different memory dividers
that should be able to please even the most hard core enthusiast. Perhaps
one day we'll have 1 MHz increments for memory speed too! [hint, hint]
