BIOS and System Spec's

In the DRAM configuration section we have all the usual memory tweaks we'd expect from a performance motherboard: CAS Latency, Burst Length and of course Bank interleaving options are all present here.

Here in the CoreCell Menu we have a whole lot of options, enough to keep the hardcore tweaker happy. You can turn AMD's Cool 'n' Quiet feature on or off, HyperThreading can be adjusted to 1000MHz through to 200MHz.

Dynamic overclocking is disabled by default, but I can't really see any experienced overclocker using those options. Users also get access to lower multipliers, and its FSB can be adjusted from 200-280 MHz in 1 MHz increments. The maximum HyperTransport voltage is 1.38V, DDR 2.85V, CPU 1.65V and AGP 1.85V.
