Well, since you can't take screenshots of the BIOS (since Windows hasn't loaded yet), I had a bit of a problem. I have a cell phone with the camera feature, but, I can't get the pics out
of the camera. It's not a very fancy camera, no plug for a USB cord to go to the computer, and I don't have the feature enabled (don't pay a service fee) to upload the pics to the 'Net or an e-mail address.
So.....I did the next best thing , which was to capture screen shots from the Gigabyte manual for my particular model motherboard (EP35C-DS3R). So, the pics you're about to see are just "stock" shots and the values you'll see are not from my actual computer; they're just the shots that were included in the manual. When one of my actual readings differs from the manuals' shot, I'll type in and tell you what mine says.
Here's the basic opening screen:
Here's the Advanced BIOS Features:
My differences in the Advanced screen are:
First boot: Hard Disk
Second: CD ROM
Init Display First: PEG
Here's the PC Health Status:
My differences in Health are:
DDR2/ DDR3 Voltage: 1.920v
Current Sys. Temp.: 49C
Current CPU Temp.: 38C
Current CPU Fan Speed: 1785 RPM
Here's the MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.):
My Tweaker differences are:
CPU Clock Ratio: 8x
CPU Frequency: 2.66GHz (333 x 8)
CPU Host Frequency (MHz): 333
Performance Enhance: Standard
Memory Frequency (MHz): 800 800
CAS Latency: 5 Auto
DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay: 5 Auto
DRAM RAS# Precharge: 5 Auto
Precharge delay (tRAS): 18 Auto
Here's the Tweaker continued:
My Tweaker continued differences are:
System Voltage Control: Auto
Normal CPU Vcore: 1.25000v
So there you have it.
When I tried to do some of the overclocking myself (and didn't have much luck!!!), in the Tweaker I had to set the System Voltage Control to Manual so I could boost it a tiny bit to something like 1.275.
But how about in the first Tweaker screenshot (http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/l...Dude/BIOS4.jpg
) where there's the System Memory Multiplier and the DRAM Timing Selectable? Is this what you were referring to? Will something here need to be changed?
When I was in the BIOS and trying to overclock, I noticed that when I was upping
the FSB, the Memory Frequency would start changing right along with it (mine, like I listed above, is 800, but it would start climbing when I was raising the FSB).
I hope you can help me with the info I provided.
Look forward to hearing from you.
