BIOS and System Spec's

The GA-8KNXP Ultra-64 offers end users all the memory timing adjustments we'd expect from a i875P motherboard including CAS latency, RAS to CAS, and RAS Precharge. Whatever you want it's here!

It seems like most manufacturers now offer some sort of dynamic overclocking feature... whether this a good thing, or not, is up to you. For testing we disabled the feature, but end users might like to keep it enabled for that extra kick when working with demanding applications.

FSB speeds can be adjusted from 200-355 MHz in 1 MHz increments. The AGP/PCI/SRC can be adjusted 1 MHz at a time, but that's not recommended especially if you're running Serial ATA HDD's. The maximum memory voltage is 2.8V, AGP 1.8V and CPU voltage 1.76V. Now, how about a little benchmarking!
