abit Fatal1ty F-I90HD Motherboard
Published: 2nd May 2007 | Source: abit | Price: |
Overclocking was performed through the BIOS, as all good 24/7 overclocking should be done. With a very limited set of overclocking features as seen below, I wonder how I will get on.
Here's what I could change as regards overclocking (see also page 3):
Low Voltage Overclocking
I set an upper limit of 1.325v for the CPU and clocked the CPU as high as I could whilst maintaining a 3 hour Orthos (dual prime95) stable overclock. I was actually pleasently surprised at the F-I90HD in this test. A nice stable and solid overclock was gained at 3300MHz.
Overclocking - Highest Possible Stable on Air
Normally for this test I stop when I got concerned that the temperature rose too high. This overclock is performed on air using a Scythe Infinity. However this time I have to admit to being baffled and slightly embarrassed at the Max Overclock I could achieve on this board. I only managed 3400MHz Dual prime stable at 1.4v. The board refused to go any higher than that at all.
I will contact abit and see what they have to say, but remember that the board is aimed at the digital home and not the overclocker so an overclock of 740Mhz is pretty respectable.
