Shuttle AK35GTR Motherboard Review

Shuttle AK35GTR Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Shuttle AK35GTR is based on VIA's much loved KT266A chipset, so we already have a pretty good idea of how fast this board is going to be.

The AK35GTR BIOS

Shuttle choose to use the Award BIOS for their AK35GTR. There in lies the playground for any overclocker/tweaker and the board doesn't disappoint. From memory tweaks to voltage and multiplier controls, Shuttle really allows the user to take full control of their system.
 
For unlocked processors, the multiplier can be adjusted from 5.5-13 and FSB can be tuned from 100 MHz to 200 MHz in 1 MHz increments. Voltage for the CPU ranges from 1.100-2.300V so for the most hardcore overclocker, there's no longer a need to voltage mod the board!
 
As for the DDR voltage, we were actually a little disappointed that Shuttle limits it from 2.55-2.7V. That seemed to hamper our overclocking as we could only push the board to 160 MHz FSB, where as with the same parts in the 8KHA+ they would top out at 172 MHz and conversely at 170 MHz in the KR7A.
 
With memory tweaks from CAS Latency settings to RAS Latency to bank interleaving there are several options for tweaking the possible 4 GB of PC2100 memory the board will support. Of course for our testing, the RAM was run at the most aggressive settings.
 
There's a neat little option that allows a 3/4 memory divider to be used should someone want to see how high their FSB would go. The 3/4 memory divider works by having the memory running slower then the FSB.  So let's say if you had a 200 MHz FSB, your memory would only be running at 150 MHz.
