ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 Socket M2 Upgradable Motherboard Review

ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 Socket M2 Upgradable Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Both the Socket M2 AMD processor and the necessary ASRock daughter card are not currently available, but the CPU is expected in Q2 of 2006 so the ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 is certainly forward-looking.

The ASRock BIOS

The ASRock 939Dual-SATA2's BIOS is a bit different from what we are used to seeing but it has most of the options one expects.


The motherboard clock speed can be adjusted between 200 and 400 MHz in 1 MHz intervals. PCI Express frequency can also be adjusted, but that is better left alone. There are CPU multiplier and voltage adjustments but no chipset voltage options. In the CPU configuration menu we find memory timings that you can play with that to your heart's content!

Features most notable in the Chipset Settings menu are the HyperTransport options as well as DRAM voltage adjustments (Low, Normal, High), oooh exciting.
