The Blue BIOS and test System Spec's

To access the advanced chipset features you must first press CTRL + F1. Once inside there's only one option to turn DDR compatibility mode on or off. During testing we found that this switch was a bit redundant as the system worked perfectly fine with DDR memory and DDR compatibility mode disabled.

In the MB Intelligent Tweaker we can enable Gigabyte's dynamic overclocker. FSB speeds can be tuned from 200-355 MHz, in 1 MHz increments. Memory dividers become available when DDR2 memory is used, and they are in sizes of 1:1 and 6:5. When DDR memory is used the memory dividers include 1:1, 4:5 and 2:3. Memory voltages can go up a maximum 0.3V, PCI-E 0.3V and CPU 0.2125V. As you can see, the memory timing adjustments are also found in the configuration screen.
