BIOS and System Spec's

The BIOS on the Epox 8RDA6+ Pro Looks very familiar to other nForce2 motherboards PCstats has reviewed in the past doesn't it? There is full multiplier control from 5x-24x, FSB can be tuned from 100-300 MHz in 1 MHz increments and there are the usual memory timings; CAS Latency, RAS, RAS to CAS, etc. Also found in the Advanced Chipset Features is the AGP settings. :-)

In the Power BIOS section you find the voltage controls. The maximum CPU voltage is 2.2V, DIMM 2.9V, AGP 1.8V and Chipset 2.0V.
