BIOS Features of the GA8PE800 Ultra

Gigabyte uses the Award BIOS system for the 8PE800 Ultra and it has most features that you would expect from a high performance motherboard. Unfortunately Gigabyte appear to have excluded the 'Advanced Chipset' options which usually house the memory timings. Because we were not able to set the memory timings aggressively, the board was tested with the memory running by SPD. The exact settings for the Corsair XMS3500 CAS2 is 2-3-3-6.

Gigabyte allow for 1 MHz increments all the way up to 350 MHz for CPU host frequency adjustments although I highly doubt anyone will be able to get that high with current processors. There are a whole slew of fixed AGP/PCI frequencies to choose from, and you can change the memory divider as well.

DRAM voltage goes to a maximum of 2.8V and AGP goes to 1.7V. You can only raise the CPU voltage to a maximum of 1.6V which is a bit low for the overclocker.
