The Pretty Blue BIOS

AOpen allow the end user the usual memory tweaks we'd expect from a Pentium 4 motherboard - no real surprises here with CAS Latency, RAS to CAS, Act to Precharge and of course RAS Precharge options.

We can also change the AGP aperature size, or even disable the onboard videocard if desired. Finally the i865G based AX4SG Max II does support PAT, and it can be turned on via the Performance Boost Engine.

AOpen's Frequency/Voltage Control menu is very straight forward and easy to use. FSB goes as high as 400 MHz which should be good enough for anyone. CPU voltages go as high as 1.6V, AGP (chipset) to 1.875V and DDR to 2.85V. There are the usual 1:1, 5:4 and 3:2 memory dividers as well. Now for the benchmarks!
