BIOS question for P5B-E MB

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
OK, my friend has a ASUS P5B-E MB and a p4 proc, the AI suite tool that came with it wont take the CPU ratio change on reboot default his CPU ratio is 14, I told him to lower it to get more fsb and to overclock without heating up bad. Since the program didn’t work he went into BIOS and we don’t see the "ratio multiplier support" option in his BIOS anywhere, he has got the latest BIOS version and I just can’t figure it out, if anyone knows why or can give any tips so we can lower his CPU ratio we would be very grateful, thanks.

Hi.

If your Asus P5's BIOS is similar to mine then...

Look for the "AI Tuning" under the Advances Tab. Change it to "Manual".

Like this:

...I hope this helps.

Can you post some pics of the BIOS (CPU and the RAM) tabs?

Does your friends BIOS' Advanced tab look like the one that I posted earlier?

When i say wont hold I mean that since his multiplier (ratio) is default at 14x when he opens AI Suite and changes it to 12x it tells him to reboot after booting up the AI Suite is back at 14x (thats what I mean by "wont hold")

BTW pics wont be ready till tomorrow, sorry for the wait hehe he lost his cam and has to get another lol.

Mornin'

So... please do not be offended, I just want to cover all the bases:

He did "Save" the configuration prior to exiting the BIOS?

Also is this board new? Are the Time and Date being saved?

How about any other changes to the BIOS?

Take a look at the pic below and see if his settings are similar:



Additionally, disable the Q-Fan control.

If you can post some pics of each tab in the BIOS it will help.
