ASUS Rampage Formula Review


Closer Look:

Extreme Tweaker:

This is the overclocking section of the BIOS. ASUS has included almost every option you could want for overclocking, and more! At first, everything is set to "Auto", but we're going to change that. The CPU Level Up option allows you to set the CPU to the QX6700, QX6800, QX6850, or "Crazy" mode.



















If you set the AI Overclock Tuner to "Manual", you'll be able to change the FSB, voltages, and more. My RAM loves to be run at 5-5-5-18 when I overclock, but you can change it to anything you want. The RAM speeds can be changed, but for my set, I know that they can run at DDR2 1000 with 5-5-5-18 timings that I already set. The FSB is changeable from 200 to 800MHz. You have to manually type in the FSB, and then press Enter to get it set.




You can set the CPU voltage anywhere from 1.1v to 2.4v, and the stepping is quite good, in my opinion. The Northbridge voltage can go up to 1.85v, 3.4v on the memory, 3.0v for CPU PLL, and 2.46v on the CPU VTT. Quite good numbers if you ask me! After you're done with your settings, be sure you save them so that you don't have to go back in and re-enter everything.
