AOpen EX915 XCube SFF PC Review
AOpen EX915 XCube SFF PC Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: This is a 'barebones' kit, meaning that you get the case with the motherboard pre-installed, but you need to purchase and install the processor, RAM, hard drive and optical drive(s) yourself.

The Blue BIOS

In the XCube's BIOS settings, we find all the usual memory tweaks we'd expect from a decent motherboard. CAS Latency, RAS to CAS and RAS Precharge are all present. We can select the frequency at which the memory runs, 333, 400 or 533 MHz. As you can see there are also a few PCI Express options for users to play with.

According to the BIOS, the motherboard can be tuned from 200-400 MHz FSB in 1 MHz increments. It doesn't look like anyone will ever hit those speeds with this PC though. Maximum memory voltage is 2.775V, and NB is 1.6V, but there are no CPU voltage adjustments.
