Overclocking and the BIOS

The particular motherboard we received for testing is an engineering sample and there were some anomalies which held us back from running the system above 200 MHz FSB; consequently we were not able to overclock. This did not affect the stock results however, and we're working with Aopen on this and should have overclocking results in the near future for you to check out.


AOpen uses an Award BIOS for their AX4SPE motherboard and it has all the usual tweaks we have come to expect from a performance motherboard.

As you can see we have the usual memory tweaks from CAS Latency to RAS to CAS delay and even RAS Precharge. We can also change the AGP Aperture Size in the Advanced Chipset options.

The FSB goes to 300 MHz FSB in 1 MHz increments. CPU voltage only goes to a maximum of 1.6V so hardcore overclockers will have to modify the motherboard or CPU to hit those higher voltages. AGP can be raised to 1.8V and memory to 2.8V. Up next are the benchmarks!
