Albatron PX865PE Lite Pro i848P Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The i848P's feature set is almost identical to that of the i865PE except for one thing, there is only one 64 bit memory controller instead of two.

Overclocking and BIOS

Albatron has never shied away from the enthusiast market and we've had quite a bit of luck overclocking their boards in the past. So, starting at 200 MHz FSB we began to raise the FSB of the PX865PE Lite Pro slowly.

At 213 MHz FSB we ran into a few stability problems but luckily raising the CPU voltage to 1.6V and the memory to 2.8V solved those problems. At 220 MHz FSB we again ran into a few more set backs and had to enable the 5:4 memory divider to keep things working alright.

Unfortunately, the highest we were able to push the PX865PE Lite Pro motherboard was 225 MHz FSB. Not the greatest increase we've been witness to, but pretty decent for a motherboard not specifically targeted towards enthusiasts.

Albatron themselves state that the PX865PE Lite Pro can run at 250 MHz FSB, but that is assuming the rest of your components can run at that speed as well. I felt there was still a little more room to go, but perhaps the Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz chip we used for testing was holding things back.

The PX865PE Lite Pro BIOS:

There are the usual memory tweaks that we would expect, like CAS Latency and Active to Precharge Delay. Albatron also included a Performance Enhancement and OC DRAM Stability option, however we were not able to enable either of them. If we did the board would not be able to run 3D applications even at stock speeds.

The Albatron PX865PE Lite Pro surprisingly allows for up to 500 MHz FSB which can be raised 1 MHz at a time. There are 3:2, 5:4, 4:5 and 2:3 memory dividers and the CPU voltage can be raised to 1.85V, AGP to 1.6V and DDR to 2.8V. Now, on with the benchmarks!
