BIOS questions :)

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Allright, so i have some questions...

I have included some images of my BIOS so I can show you what i'm curious about (http://www.overclock.net/album.php?albumid=3619)

Allrigt, so the last picture on the right is the menu where I can adjust my CPU frequency and stuff.. (I do not have the Frequency/voltage control menu)

The NPT fid control is my multiplier and the NPT vid control is my Corevoltage (Weird names, eh?)

Well my question is about the picture to the left. It shows my ram... And it is set to "DDR 533", allthough my RAM is DDR2 800, should i adjust it to DDR 800 or just let it stay like this ?

Thanks

set it manually to the timings on the sticks. Set the voltage manually as well. I find it odd your board offers 800 as a choice since for ddr2 ram u mulitply the number by 2 to get the speed. For example in my mobo I set the ram to 533 and it gives me a clock of 1066.

download cpu-z and post a ss of the spd page tab and the memory page tab pls.

in the second shot you are running at 800 (400x2). So whatever you had it on in the second shot use that setting.

And just for your info. spd shows possible ram settings for different speeds and the ram page shows what its currently set at. Also why wouldnt you be able to set timings? if you can set the ram speed im sure you can set timings unless its an oem board.

What, you don't like my mobo ?

Well, my computer was custombuilt from a brand called Phoenix Computers, don't know if it's international or just danish (Im in Denmark )

EDIT: It seams that my SPD (the tab in CPU-Z) on ddr2 800 is 5-5-5-18-23, but my memory tab on CPU-Z it says that it is 5-5-5-18-24...?

Took a look at your bios build. It's a really cheap Abit board with only auto settings for memory and timings but............I just modded it to open up those manual settings (you lucky devil). Interested in trying it out?

Could you please explain what this is, and how you've created the mod. I do not wish to install something on my computer's motherboard, that i dont know what is
post #10 of 21
In a nutshell, it's the bios from your motherboard (the ONLY one I might ad), opened up with a bios modding program in which I un-hid all of the manual options that were previously hidden from you by the original manufacturer. You flash it the same as you would any other bios. In the attached file, I've provided everything needed. All you have to do is unpack the file on a formatted, bootable piece of media (floppy, CD, USB stick, Etc.) and boot from that. The autoexe.bat file I provided will do everything for you.
