Although targeted at the workstation/light server market, Iwill has offered some overclocking options for the enthusiast as well. The DVD266-Rís Phoenix BIOS comes equipped with Iwillís Smart Setting menu, which includes FSB speed adjustments ranging from 66 to 200 MHz in 1 MHz increments, and Core voltage settings ranging from 1.60V to 2.05V in 0.05V increments. These are the two main ingredients necessary for successful overclocking. Unfortunately, both CPUs must use the same core voltage setting, as the board does not have independent voltages for each CPU, such as Abitís BP6.
The board also features Winbondís W83627HF hardware monitor, which supports monitoring of three temperatures, CPU 0, CPU 1, and System Temp, three fan speeds, two CPU fans and a system fan, as well as all the standard voltages. The CPU temperature readings are taken from the processorís on-die thermal diode, which provides the most accurate measurements.
Fg 7. Winbond's W83627HF hardware monitor keeps an eye on the CPU voltages and fans.
In general, the boards BIOS and hardware monitoring are adequate for moderate overclocking, although youíll be somewhat limited in terms of heatsink options because of the lack of space around the CPU sockets. On the other hand, Pentium III CPUs run relatively cool, so massive heatsinks arenít usually necessary.
