BIOS & Overclocking

Albatron this time decided to make use of a Phoenix Award BIOS. It's fairly simple and easy to use. You'll have plenty of room for overclocking. The CPU Voltage runs from stock of 1.3875v all the way up to 1.9v. Albatron's mainboard have a reputation of being a good overclocker which we can only applaud.

The Albatron Mars PX915G Pro gives end users all the usual memory tweaks we'd expect from a motherboard in this class. From CAS Latency to RAS to CAS, and RAS Precharge.

In the Frequency/Voltage Control, you can select from three PCI speed settings; 33 MHz, 37 MHz and 44 MHz. We can change the PCI-E settings from Auto to 100 MHz. System memory can be set to run 1:1 (400 MHz) or 6:5 (333 MHz), and FSB can be adjusted from 200-333 MHz in 1 MHz increments. As for voltage options, you can raise the DDR voltage +0.4V, NB +0.3V and CPU can go as high as +0.3V. Also when your CPU allows it, you can change the multiplier. It's the best way to overclock whatsoever...

Memory wise we where able to do some nice things also, as all is configurable we went for some better timings on the memory, 2.5-3-3-7 in order to be able to squeeze some more of that precious performance, it's of course very dependant on what brand and kind of memory you use. We were able to push the FSB up to 220MHz which shows that the mainboard can handle it. Yet the Prescott based CPU got so incredible hot that I did not want to risk frying the CPU because .. well will you look at the picture above and read the temperature, that's in idle! Some other reviews have shown an FSB capability of roughly 240 MHz (quad pumped), which is really good. It all depends a bit on luck though.
