    ABIT AT7 MAX2 - ABIT AT7-MAX2


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    BIOS: ABIT's SoftMenu bios has been a happy home for overclockers for quite some time now. There are a lot of configuration options in there, but we'll only take a look at the core one's we will be playing with most of the time.

    Here is the overclockers favorite screen. Here is where we set the operating speed, adjust the FSB, Ratio, and Multiplier. The AT7 MAX2 enables the multiplier to be adjusted on Thoroughbred CPU's. This is a big plus not to have to manually unlock your T-bred. Palomino's still need to be unlocked.




    The AT7 MAX2 currently supports up to the 3000+(333) AMD Athlon XP CPU with the latest BIOS update, and should support the Barton CPU's in the near future with a BIOS update. The FSB is selectable up to 250, but with the VIA KT400 chipset, you'll have a tough time getting over 200 without corrupting your hard drives, thanks to no 1/6 divider.

     

    Going back to ABIT's use of the 5 FID, we can see that the available multipliers range from 5-22.5


    Nice array of CPU voltage adjustments from 1.1V-2.35V, and DDR voltage from 2.55V-3.25V. Enough voltage for just about anyone to thoroughly toast a chip.

    Here are the memory settings. Plenty of them to play with to keep you busy well into the night.

    AGP settings. The one thing I noticed with the current C5 Bios is that the AGP voltage adjustment is missing. Hope they bring that one back.

    Finally, the PC Health screen. ABIT uses CPU H.T.P. (Hardware Thermal Protection) and here is where you can set up your warning and shutdown temps.

    There are many more screens in the BIOS to adjust your other system settings, but they are for the most part the ones you set once and forget about.
