BIOS Options / Test System Specs

The MSI P35 Platinum has a lot of memory timing adjustments as you can see below. There are the usual CAS Latency, to RAS to CAS delay and RAS Precharge settings.

To enable CPU clock multipler adjustments, Intel EIST must be disabled! If it is not, the CPU ratio option will not be available.

MSI's P35 Platinum allows you to adjust the Front Side Bus from 266-1000 MHz in 1 MHz increments. There are a whole host of DDR2 memory timing speeds (533, 638, 667, 800, 866, 1067MHz). The maximum CPU voltage is 2.0625V. Memory can be adjusted to 3.3V, VTT 1.55V, Northbridge 1.65V, Southbridge I/O 1.8V and Southbridge core to 1.15V.
