BIOS & Overclocking Continued


By: Dan Mepham

The XP333-Rís BIOS, including Iwillís Smart Setting, offers a slew of overclocking features and control settings as well. CPU multipliers can be adjusted up to 15X, and voltage can be adjusted up to 1.85V. DRAM voltage can be increased as well (2.5-2.8V), although this is accomplished via jumpers located near the DIMM banks.

Most noteworthy, though, is the fact that the FSB can be adjusted up to 233 MHz in 1 MHz increments. These arenít just useless settings, as many will no doubt find that the XP333-R is more than capable of running at upwards of 180-200 MHz fairly easily. Accompanying this, the PCI divider can be manually specified, and 1/5 and 1/6 ratios are available for true 166 and 200 MHz bus speed support. We have tested, and verified that the 1/5 and 1/6 settings are fully functional, which is something no other board on the market can claim right now. AGP dividers cannot be forced. The last board weíre aware of to offer that capability was Abitís BF6/BE6-II. This isnít as big a deal, however, as AGP cards are generally much more tolerant than PCI cards.

Iwill rounds out the package with some superb memory tweaking options.
