ECS PF88 Extreme Hybrid + SIMA A9S Platform Converter Card




ECS had been rather successful i

ECS has been rather successful in implementing innovative ideas to this PF88 board. However, when it comes to BIOS, it just doesn’t take off.
Overclocking options are extremely limited. With tweaking options being so limited,
voltage options were as good as none. Since different platforms can be used on
this board, the BIOS tweaks available for both Intel and AMD are very
different. Intel side of things looks better, but AMD’s tweaking options are
so limited, we hope ECS can add more in the coming BIOS release. Of course, we do understand that the board is natively Intel and thus it may be harder to implement AMD’s tweakability.

Intel Tweaking Options:





CPU
Voltages
  • Auto Voltage Sensing (Default Vcore)
  • +25mV (+0.025V)
  • +50mV (+0.050V)
  • +75mV (+0.075V)
VDIMM Voltages
  • Default Vdimm (1.8V)
  • +50mV (+0.050V / 1.85V)
  • +100mV (+0.100V / 1.90V)
  • +150mV (+0.150V / 1.95V)
Adjustable DRAM Latencies
  • DDR2 CAS Latency (TCL)
  • RAS to CAS Delay (TRCD)
  • Precharge Time (TRP)
  • RAS Active Time (TRAS)
  • Write Recover Time (TWR)
Other Major Tweaking Options
  • CPU Multiplier Adjustable (from 14x to 18x on our P4 3.6Ghz ES)
  • FSB Ranging from 200 to 450MHz
  • FSB adjustments in 1MHz increments
  • Selectable Async PCI Clock frequencies
  • PCI Clock selectable values: 33.3 / 37.5 / 40.0MHz
