You make your BIOS decision and live with the A64 decision itself. Remarkable to say the least.
So we're saying that the A64 is going to use an integral divider for the memory speed, no matter what, and that there are no asynchronous memory accesses? At least, not in the 3:2, 5:4, etc sense?

So what's your personal opinion of thermally controlled fans?

Having the motherboard control the fan speed is a nifty idea, but I think it's asking for trouble. And I've always felt that you should be able to control both the "level" and "gain" of the voltage/temperature relation - haven't seen that in a BIOS yet. Every implementation I've seen falls into the "gimmick" catgory. Which includes most of the heatsinks with the thermistor sticking out of the side, rather than embedded in the metal.
