On this page, I will show everything about the Abit AN78GS overclocking. In the "Softmenu Setup," accessed in the main menu, the processor frequency can be adjusted as well as all voltages. But first, "User Define" must be chosen. However, one thing is missing here: the CPU multiplier, which is elsewhere.
The CPU multiplier is found in the "CPU feature sub-menu," which can be accessed via the "Advanced BIOS features." In order to change it, AMD "Cool'n'Quiet Technology" must first be disabled.
The "DRAM Configuration" sub-menu is accessed through the "Advanced Chipset features" menu. Once again, before changing any value, the "DRAM Timing selectable" must be set on "Manual." Then, the clock and timings can be set.
One last setting is hidden elsewhere: the HyperTransport frequency. It can be found in the "Advanced Chipset features" menu. It can vary from 200MHz to 2600MHz.
Finally, every overclocker needs to check the "PC Health Status." This one is at the right in the main menu. In the first section, the CPU and system fans can be controlled. Automatic can also be used, by which different speeds are activated by temperature thresholds. In the second section, this is where all temperature and voltage measurements are.
