    ABIT IP35-E - BIOS/Overclocking

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    You will find all that you need in this BIOS. You will find all your typical settings such as PC health monitoring and boot priority. Many budget boards don't give you a great deal of overclocking ability or the ability to change the voltage of many different parts.

    Abit has once again come out with a stupendous board for a budget price. It falls in line with other budget boards at this price and offers overclockability up there with any performance board. I doubted I would be able to get a 100% overclock on a $90 motherboard, but I was wrong. This board has tackled all I asked for and is ready for more beyond what my CPU can give it. I was able to get 420+ FSB without any trouble with this motherboard. The only down side is there is a huge drop in the voltage the CPU got while under load.


    Before I was able to boot up the computer I had some serious issues. The first big problem was that the board's default DDR2 voltage is really low. It's so low, in fact, that I was unable to boot my 2 OCZ sticks. I was lucky enough to be able to boot one up and then bump up the volts, and then all was well. The other major issue was the double booting. This problem has been fixed with a beta BIOS flash. It is annoying until you are able to flash to the newest BIOS. Other than these two issues the board fired up fine.

    There isn't a whole lot that you can benchmark for on motherboards. I will use the stock vs. overclock for comparison. For the testing, we will run the computer through a few difference benchmarks. The test computer will be the following:

    • Intel Pentium 2140

    • Abit IP35-E

    • 2 GB OCZ Gold G TC

    • MS 8600 GT OX

    • OCZ Power stream 520 watt
