Foxconn 755A01-6EKRS AMD Motherboard Review

Former staff writer    -   May 6, 2004


Closer Look (Cont.)
Like the ZNF3-150, the 755A01-6EKRS uses the Phoenix AwardBIOS, however the 755A01-6EKRS doesn't look to be as overclocking friendly. We'll see how well this board overclocks in a moment, but first, here is what the BIOS looks like.


As you can see, from the main BIOS screen, there are 9 sections that can be entered. They are:

  • Standard CMOS Features
  • BIOS Features
  • Advanced BIOS Features
  • Advanced Chipset Features
  • Integrated Peripherals
  • Power Management Setup
  • PnP/PCI Configurations
  • PC Health Status
  • Frequency/Voltage Control

In addition to those sections, you asl have the options to:

  • Load Fail-Safe Defaults
  • Load Optimized Defaults
  • Set Supervisor Password
  • Set User Password
  • Save & Exit Setup
  • Exit Without Saving

Standard BIOS Features
This is where you get to set all of the IDE information, as well as the BIOS time and date. Selecting an IDE device, will allow you to either auto detect it, or manually specify information for it.

BIOS Features
This is where the general system features are setup. This is also where you can adjust the CPU clock (overclock). Hrmm... overclocking is a general system feature? I kinda like that. As you can see in the 2nd image, you only have a 32Mhz increase window. This doesn't look all that great, but considering the AMD64 doesn't overclock to well, it's more than enough. -- Sadly, I couldn't get this motherboard to boot with just a 5Mhz increase (205Mhz x 10 = 2.050Ghz = 50Mhz overclock).

Advanced BIOS Features
This is the section that contains a lot more of the BIOS features. You can adjust the boot order, Num Lock status, enable/disable the CPU cache, allow for virus warning, and adjust several other options, including the Hard Disk Boot Priority.
