Problems, Hints & Tips:
  • Winbond CH5 based Memory has problems running async at speeds greater than 270 mhz. Bios versions 1.6 and up seem to help with this problem.
  • The board reads temperatures too high (up to +20°C!)
  • Many memory problems have been fixed with BIOS v1.1 - An upgrade is recommended to everybody.
  • Changing the AGP Voltage setting in your bios also changes the Northbridge voltage which may improve your overclock.
  • There is a new version (still rev. 1.0) of the board out with an improved Northbridge fan and heatsink.
  • A revision 1.1 has been released. It is unknown if there were any changes beyond the new Northbridge Fan.
