In the BIOS

Tweakers will love all the memory options that Soltek allows for with the SL-K890Pro-939! There are all the usual memory timing adjustments like CAS Latency, RAS to CAS and Row Precharge as well as Row cycle time and Read Preamble value options!

With Athlon64 processors, you have complete control over setting lower multipliers while Athlon64 FX users can also adjust the CPU multipliers higher. Maximum CPU voltage is 1.7V, DDR is 2.75V and the clock speed of the motherboard can be raised from 200-300 MHz in 1 MHz increments.
