Bios Feature Settings...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys just wondering about a few features I saw under my motherboard bios.

1. Reset Case Open Status
Vcore OverVoltage Control
Normal <=
+5%
+7.5%
+10%

2. DIMM Over Voltage Control
Normal <=
+0.1V
+0.2V

Just wondering about this settings at the moment. The across "<=" on the side show where my setting is at the moment.

Its how much more voltage you want to give your CPU and RAM. For example;

The Athlon64's run at 1.4v stock, so if I overvolted it by +5% then I would be volting it to 1.47v.

Over-Voltage Control is not a method of increasing voltage as has been stated here. Rather Over-Voltage Control is a protection circuit built into the voltage regulator. It is a programmable current limiting the fluctuation of the voltage and serves to protect the circuit from spike surges for increased system safety and reliability.

When one overclocks their processor/dram voltages they are taking the voltage of the system out of the "Normal" spec so the ability to set a higher control is very helpful. If you are not overclocking then you do not need to change these settings.

I c what you mean, So for me that I am runing Vcore from 1.5v to 1.6v at the moment @ 1.7Ghz 200FSB from 1.4Ghz would that be needed then?

It certainly would not hurt and could very well help with stability.

Should I then put it into 5% or higher?
