Soyo P4S Dragon Ultra Plus Motherboard Review

Soyo P4S Dragon Ultra Plus Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Around back we see a typical colour coded set of IO ports with two big exceptions - the USB ports are in a different location and there is an onboard RJ-45 Ethernet jack.

The BIOS

A good BIOS lies at the heart of every good motherboard, and the Soyo P4S Dragon is not one to be left short.

The BIOS Soyo ship withe P4S Dragon is very fully featured and even allows the user to adjust MAC addresses without the need for another EEPROM. On this screen we can see the various memory controls the overclocker has access to. DDR voltage controls are taken care of on another menu so don't worry - the settings are there.

Standard overclocking tools are punctuated with AGP, DDR, and Vcore voltage options, and CPU to DRAM clock ratios. The BIOS supports 1:1, 3:4, 3:5, 4:3, and 4:5. Incidentally, Soyo's instructions are really well written for the BIOS section, they explain all the terms a little which is great for those lesser known options.

Running a 2.0GHz Williamette processor on this board we were a bit limited by what we could accomplish in terms of overclocking. Never the less, a small boost from 2.0GHz to 2.16GHz was a welcome one and the Soyo P4S Dragon remained quite stable.
