They told me the board was early silicon so
I sincerely hope the BIOS is equally juvenile. What's on offer
is pretty much the basics and what's missing are things like
core voltage adjustments, the ability to set the AGP mode,
the ability to set the CPU multiplier and various other little
niceties we've become used to like tweaking the FSB in 1MHz
increments rather than simply having the option of 100MHz,
133MHz or 166MHz. You can still adjust in 1MHz increments
but only in expert mode which I suppose kind of makes sense.
Memory timings feature the usual level of flexibility but
other than this and the ability to asynchronously set the
AGP frequency there's not a lot here to get excited about.
Even the health monitoring is limited to a basic six fields
with no thermal safety net.
