EVGA Classified Super Record 2 SR-2 Motherboard ReviewFri, Oct 15, 2010 - 8:00 AM
EVGA SR-2 BIOS
EVGA has quickly become known for its high clocking motherboards. They spend lots of time adding plenty of tweaking options into the BIOS for enthusiasts to push their systems to the limit. The Classified SR-2 is no exception; with the number of options available you could easily spend weeks getting the optimal overclock settings. Here are a few of the highlights.
Here we have the home screen of the BIOS. As you can see, it has the normal features of an AMI BIOS. If you are at all familiar with an LGA 1156 or 1366 BIOS you’ll be right at home here.
Hardware Health is just that. It allows you to check the temperature of the various components in your system, as well as fan speeds and system voltages.
Frequency/Voltage Control gives you access to all of your CPU speed and Memory tweaks. Each of the submenus has a vast number of tweaking options.
Here you can see the CPU configuration, which is pretty standard stuff for changing things like Hyperthreading and the various idle states.
Moving on to the memory configuration, we see the standard controls for CAS Latency and the rest of the primary timings, as well as some sub timings.
In Voltage Configuration we get separate voltage control for each CPU’s vcore, VDroop, and DIMM voltage. This is extremely helpful as no two CPU’s are going to overclock the same with identical voltages.
Finally we have Signal Tweaks, which takes things beyond a quick setting change. These settings are for fine-tuning a marginally stable overclock.
