Overclocking and BIOS

Overall I'd say we have had quite a bit of luck overclocking Intel based motherboards in the past little while and so I was hoping that this tradition would continue with the Magic-Pro MP-P6PE-1000.

Starting at 200 MHz FSB we raised the clock speed slowly, 205 MHz, 210 MHz, and 215 MHz with no problems so far. At 219 MHz FSB we ran into some memory problems and had to raise the Voltage to 2.8V to help stabilize things.

At 223 MHz FSB we again ran into some stability problems but that was nothing raising the Vcore couldn't solve. When we hit the 230 MHz mark the system would drop back to desktop while running 3DMark which usually indicates that the memory was running too fast. I changed the memory divider to 5:4 (async and running slower then the FSB) to try and fix this, and it worked.

In the end, our overclocking adventure finally finished at a lofty 235 MHz FSB; not bad considering we're using a P4 3C. If we had a slower processor like 2.4C or 2.6C I'm sure we could have hit 250+ MHz FSB!

Enter the BIOS...

Magic-Pro gives the end user all the usual memory tweaks we'd expect like CAS Latency adjustments to RAS to CAS and RAS Precharge. We can also change the AGP Aperture size but not the AGP rate.

For those of you who overclock the MP-P6PE-1000 can go up to a maximum of 255 MHz FSB. You can set the memory to run 3/2, 5/4 1/1 and even faster then the FSB. CPU voltage goes up to 1.85V which is nice for a change, AGP 1.6V and DDR up to 2.8V. Up next, the benchmarks.
