Overclocking and the BIOS

From our experiences with the few Albatron motherboards we have personally tested here at PCstats.com, I can say that they tend to be pretty overclocker friendly. With the PX845E set up on the test bench, and powered up I first tried 150 MHz FSB to see where things stood. So far so good. A few more advancements were achieved, but at 155 MHz FSB the board would boot up, and crash in any CPU intensive applications. To stabilize things we raised the CPU Voltage to 1.6Volts.

At 160 MHz FSB we ran into a few more problems and had to increase the voltage to 1.65V. After a few more trials we settled on a maximum FSB of 163 MHz FSB. Anything higher and the system would BSOD no matter what value Vcore was set to.

The Albatron PX845E BIOS is of the Phoenix variety, and in typical Albatron fashion, the user has full control over their system. All the usual tweaks we have come to expect are here, as they would be on any performance oriented motherboard.

Here we have the usual CAS Latency, RAS to CAS Delay and RAS Precharge.

The CPU Voltage can be raised to 1.85V, FSB can be adjusted in 1 MHz increments from 100-248 MHz and AGP and DDR voltages go to 1.6V and 2.8V respectively.
