The Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 BIOS

In the advanced chipset features section we see the memory timing adjustments, if you are a tweaker you will appreciate the ability to run tighter timings.

The Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 is not the most hardcore motherboard on the market, but its FSB options range from 200-265 MHz in 1 MHz increments. You can also adjust the PCI Express frequency.... however that one is best left alone. CPU voltage can be increased an additional 0.1875V, memory voltage 0.18V and system core voltage (chipset) to 0.15V. Up next, the benchmarks!

pcstats has upgraded its test platform with a couple of 74gb western digital WD740 Raptor hard drives, replacing the trusty 40GB WD IDE HDDs as test drives. Please keep that in mind when viewing the office and disk benchmarks. Note that this board was tested with the Intel Pentium D 840 CPU, while the remaining reference boards were tested with an Intel Pentium 4 540 CPU; both are clocked at 3.2GHz.
