the i845E chipset with a neat looking silver colour heatsink. It's a little on
the small side but since the i845E doesn't generate a lot of heat it's not a big
deal anyway. We loved how Soltek put that piece of plastic on the chipset
heatsink retention mech, it makes removing it much easier. Other little things
that Soltek does is, they reenforced the back of the CPU socket with a plastic back plane pcb support, this stops
the motherboard from warping when the heatsink is locked
Soltek uses a modified version of the Award BIOS for their
SL-85DR2. It's very straight forward and has all the regular tweaks we've become accustomed to like CAS latency
settings and Memory speed timings.
All the memory tweaks you would ever
want are here. CAS Latency, Memory frequency, RAS Precharge time. Intel based
boards though have never had many AGP tweaks like VIA based ones.
Here we can adjust the FSB 1 MHz at a
time from 100-200 MHz. We wish Soltek allowed for you to just type the FSB
rather then only being able to scroll. Since our 1.6A does about 160 MHz FSB it
can take a while to scroll down to 160.
