NF2 Ultra B BIOS

DFI gives the end user the most memory tweaks I have ever seen.... There are the normal CAS Latency and RAS timings as well as individual DIMM Driving Strength and Slew Rate. I have no idea how to adjust most of these timing so I left them set to auto.

DFI flexes its muscles here in the Genie BIOS settings.

We can adjust the FSB 1 MHz at a time from 200-300 MHz FSB as well as adjusting the AGP should you want data to flow faster to the videocard. We have full multiplier control, and there are a host of memory dividers. Of course, you'll want to run with 1:1 memory dividers for best performance.

Overclocking enthusiasts will really like the DFI NF2 Ultra B because there is no reason to 'volt mod' to get those high voltages to the CPU or memory. Maximum CPU voltage is 2V, AGP 1.8V, chipset 1.9V and memory 3.3V!

It's clear who this board is targeted towards. If you don't have much experience overclocking please stay away from those high voltage options. You can very easily destroy your hardware if you set the power too high.
