The Abit IP35 Pro Bundle & BIOS
The bundle that comes with the IP35 Pro is typical Abit. There is quite a bit included in the box. you have your abundance of SATA cables and SATA power adaptora, as well as your IDE and floppy cables. The board also comes with a firewire header, an driver and apps CD and all the documentation you could want.
Abit has gone with the AWARD BIOS for this board. It is customized for Abit, as we usually see with their boards.
Under the UGURU Utility tab is where we find most of the things we will tweak and use on this board. The OC Guru section is worthy of a closer look.
FSB has the ability to go to 600, which is fantastic!
Ram divider is just a little confusing compared to most. Although it is nice to see what your DDR speed will actually be as you are adjusting the settings.
Vcore goes all the way to 1.895v!
Vdimm is capped at 3v... hehe, yes I said capped! Just kidding! This is very cool for the hard core crowd! There are other various voltages available as well, just look at the pics...
The BIOS also gives you the opportunity to see how long your rig has beenon, how many times it has booted and other such things.
Abit EQ page is where you fine the health and fan controls for the board.
And voltages... not bad actually!
Advanced BIOS features gives us the opportunity to set boot order and a few other things that happen at start-up.
Advanced chipset features gives us our DDR timings. The most primary of timings are available.
And lastly, we have the ability to save up to five different BIOS settings and reload them as needed. I have always liked having this option, especially when benching!
