DRAM Clock
The chipset supports synchronous and asynchronous mode between host
clock and DRAM clock frequency.
Settings: [By SPD, 100 MHz, 133 MHz, 166 MHz, 200 MHz]
DRAM Timing
The value in this field depends on the memory modules installed in your
system. Changing the value from the factory setting is not recommended
unless you install new memory that has a different performance rating than
the original modules.
Settings: [Manual, By SPD]
SDRAM CAS Latency
This item is for setting the speed it takes for the memory module to complete
a command. Generally, a lower setting will improve the performance of your
system. However, if your system becomes less stable, you should change it
to a higher setting. This field is only available when “DRAM Timing” is set to
“Manual”.
Settings: [1.5, 2, 2.5, 3]

Chapter 3
Bank Interleave
This item is for setting the interleave mode of the SDRAM interface.
Interleaving allows banks of SDRAM to alternate their refresh and access
cycles. One bank will undergo its refresh cycle while another is being
accessed. This improves performance of the SDRAM by masking the refresh
time of each bank. This field is only available when “DRAM Timing” is set to
“Manual”.
Settings: [Disabled, 2 Bank, 4 Bank]
Precharge to Active (Trp)
This field is for setting the length of time it takes to precharge a row in the
memory module before the row becomes active. Longer values are safer but
may not offer the best performance. This field is only available when “DRAM
Timing” is set to “Manual”.
Settings: [2T, 3T, 4T, 5T]
Active to Precharge (Tras)
This field is for setting the length of time it a row stays active before
precharging. Longer values are safer but may not offer the best performance.
This field is only available when “DRAM Timing” is set to “Manual”.
Settings: [5T, 6T, 7T, 8T, 9T]
Active to CMD (Trcd)
This field is only available when “DRAM Timing” is set to “Manual”.
Settings: [2T, 3T, 4T, 5T]
REF to ACT / REF to REF (Trfc)
This field is only available when “DRAM Timing” is set to “Manual”.
Settings: [12T, 13T, 14T, 15T]
ACT(0) to ACT(1) (TRRD)
This field is only available when “DRAM Timing” is set to “Manual”.
Settings: [2T, 3T]

BIOS Setup
DRAM Command Rate
This field is for setting how fast the memory controller sends out commands.
Lower setting equals faster command rate.
NOTE: Some memory modules may not be able to handle lower
settings.
Settings: [2T Command, 1T Command]
Spread Spectrum Range
Settings: [+/-0.1%, +/-0.2%, +/-0.3%, +/-0.6%]
Spread Spectrum
When the mainboard's clock generator pulses, the extreme values (spikes) of
the pulses creates EMI (Electromagnetic Interference). The Spread Spectrum
function reduces the EMI generated by modulating the pulses so that the
spikes of the pulses are reduced to flatter curves.
Settings: [Disabled, Enabled]

Change / Set / Disable Password
This option is for setting a password for entering BIOS Setup. When a
password has been set, a password prompt will be displayed whenever BIOS
Setup is run. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any part
of your system configuration.
There are two types of passwords you can set. A supervisor password and a
user password. When a supervisor password is used, the BIOS Setup
program can be accessed and the BIOS settings can be changed. When a
user password is used, the BIOS Setup program can be accessed but the
BIOS settings cannot be changed.
To set the password, type the password (up to eight characters in length)
and press <Enter>. The password typed now will clear any previously set
password from CMOS memory. The new password will need to be reentered
to be confirmed. To cancel the process press <Esc>.
To disable the password, press <Enter> when prompted to enter a new
password. A message will show up to confirm disabling the password. To
cancel the process press <Esc>.
Additionally, when a password is enabled, the BIOS can be set to request the
password each time the system is booted. This would prevent unauthorized
use of the system. See “Security Option” in the “Advanced BIOS Features”
section for more details.
