abit uses a modified version of the Phoenix Award BIOS for their F-190HD motherboard. The BIOS screen is a cool red color, like all Fatal1ty branded equipment. The CPU frequency can be set in the SoftMenu menu. The frequency can be set from 133MHz to 500MHz FSB depending on the multiplier, the frequency that the CPU can attain and stability. The Pentium 670 we use for testing could use a multiplier of 14x-19x. DDR2 Spec can be set by SPD, DDR2 533MHz, DDR2 667MHz, and DDR2 800MHz.

Voltages can be set in the SoftMenu menu as well. CPU Voltage can be set from 1.400V to 1.775V in 0.125V increments. DDR2 Voltage can be set from 1.75V to 2.5V in 0.05V increments. Northbridge 1.8V can be set from 1.80V to 2.088V in 0.036V increments. The Advanced Chipset Features is where you can change your RAM timings. CAS Latency (tCL) can be set from 2-7. RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD) can be set from 0-15. RAS Precharge (tRP) can be set from 0-15. RAS Delay (tRAS) can be set from 0-255. Refresh Cycle Time (tRFC) can be set from 0-255. Here is where you also set your onboard video settings in the BIOS. The RADEON 1250 can have up to 512MB of shared memory assigned to it.
