Now don't get all excited, we are not doing illegal substances while overclocking our computer. ASUS calls it Extreme Tweaker because of the numerous options you have to overclock your system. Right off the bat you have total control over your system by setting the AI Overclocking settings. You can alter the CPU frequency and multiplier. This allows you to push your CPU to its potential with little effort to start. You can also alter the voltage for your components here on the main tweaking screen without having to dig too deep in the menus to get what you need. You can even alter the CPU to Northbridge multiplier for more stable overclocks.
The DRAM configuration section lets you configure every possibility you can think of for the memory. You can alter your timings, output driver control, whether it is running in ganged or unganged modes with the CPU, and more.
The CPU configuration lets you control CPU features such as Cool and Quiet, AMD Virtulization, AMD Live and the CPU spectrums.
Now that we have the BIOS down, let's move on over to the testing phase.
