new bios

I was reading some polls of people who switched to the new epox bios and noticed that 99% got much higher FSB overclocking numbers with it. How is that the bios can do so much for overclocking? I'm talking noticable differences too.

Please state the model of your motherboard and also the set-up variables which you have chosen.

I haven't pushed mine to see where the limits are. I'm talking about alot of other people on other forums. They all got 8K7A or 8K7A+ ver1.0. All got higher FSB with just the BIOS switch. So I was wondering what did Epox put into the 10.12 bios that made it so good? I actually just downloaded it. I'll probably do a mild overclock to see how it holds up. I know the last one did 150 at least with no problems.

Anyway, the only set up variable that I can see affecting overclocking are the memory timings. I know alot of ppl, including myself run, 8-8-8-2-6-2-2. I'll double check that, but I'm positive that's what I have.

Epox released a bios that apparently adds a 1/5 PCI divisor - about the only explanation as to how people can get past 166 without problems with peripherals. While AMD won't acknowledge the ability for a 1/5 divisor in its chipset, this seems the only explanation. So to answer your question - that's the reason. I run most of my boards at 175 with ram timings at 8882222 with corsair pc2400. Sisoft scores are roughly 935/1020.

A clue - the ability to add dividers is nevermore located in the chipset, but the PLL and the BIOS implementation. We don't give too much away on these subjects however - we let you experiment and perhaps enjoy or not enjoy your findings.

The latest BIOS with Quantispeed support, EasyBoot and Magic Health is a marvel of BIOS engineering which I hope that everyone will enjoy. A lot of hard work went into it to procuce a BIOS which I hope whilst everyone will enjoy we can improve furthermore.
