Asus Blitz Extreme P35 Socket 775 Motherboard
Published: 16th August 2007 | Source: Asus | Price: |The BIOS
As with all of Asus' most recent motherboards, the Blitz Extreme is based around a BIOS from Phoenix Technologies. Some enthusiasts tend to favor the Award BIOS layout over Phoenix, but it's extremely hard to find fault with the overall wealth of features available on the Blitz.
|CPU Multiplier||x6 upwards|
|FSB Frequency||200-800mhz (1mhz steps)|
|PCI-E Frequency||100-150mhz (1mhz steps)|
|DRAM Command Rate||1T / 2T|
When it comes to voltage options on the Blitz, all I can say is "wow!". Somebody at Asus was clearly hell bent on on giving this board the most extensive range of voltage options on any motherboard in existance. For a start, the CPU voltage can be increased up to a silicon frying 1.9v in minisucule 0.00625v increments, then there's the DDR3 memory voltage which can be taken from 1.50v up to a whopping 3.04v in 0.02v steps.
Obviously a large range of these options are dangerous to the health of hardware, so Asus have gone to the trouble of placing LED's at various points on the motherboard (CPU, Northbridge, Southbridge, DRAM Slots) that change from green to orange to red depending on how much voltage you are putting through the components.
A full list of voltage options can be seen in the table below:
|CPU Voltage||1.1v-1.9v (0.00625v steps)|
|FSB Termination Voltage||1.20v-1.80v (0.02v steps)|
|Northbridge Voltage||1.25v-2.03v (0.02v steps)|
|DRAM Voltage||1.50-3.04v (0.02v steps)|
|Southbridge Voltage||1.050v-1.225v (0.025v steps)|
|PLL Voltage||1.05-1.20v (0.02v steps)|
