Cell Menu

Finally, we come onto the Cell Menu where all the tweaking and overclocking can be done. The Auto Overclock technology automatically finds the maximum FSB – albeit by dropping the multiplier down; the Multistep OC Booster is also present.

The CPU Specs and Memory-Z can be opened from this page or alternatively using F4 and F5 respectively which opens them in a red pop-out to view the settings. However, adjusting the memory settings needs to be done in the advanced DRAM configuration or to increase the frequency change the FSB/DRAM ratio. The adjusted DRAM frequency is then shown below which is useful as it doesn’t require a calculator to work out all the speeds.

The voltage settings for all of the various chips are found below and are adjusted by simply pressing + or -.

Finally the last screen is for M-Flash, an interested device that allows the BIOS to be read from a storage drive. Different settings can also be programmed into the user settings and the usual “Load Optimised Defaults” or “Load Fail Safe Defaults” are available at the touch of the F6 and F8 keys.

Overall, the BIOS is very easy to use especially the Cell Menu and although it may not be the most extensive, it seems to function well.
