ASUS BIOS Explained:

  • Ai Overclock Tuner - Auto, Manual, DOCP
  • CPU Ratio - Adjusts the CPU Clock Multiplier (CPU Multi x FSB = CPU Speed)
  • AMD Turbo CORE Technology - Disable in order to manually Overclock the CPU
  • CPU Bus Frequency - A.K.A. FSB. This adjusts the base clock for, HTT, NB, CPU, DRAM.
  • PCIe Bus Frequency - Defaults to 100, not recommended to change, as it may damage GPU/HDD.
  • Memory Frequency - Adjust the Memory Divider. (DRAM Divider x FSB = DRAM Speed)
  • CPU/NB Frequency - Adjust the CPU/NB Divider - Defaults to 2000-2200Mhz
  • HT Link Speed - Adjust the HT Link Divider - Defaults to 2600Mhz
  • CPU Spread Spectrum - Disable - to increase overclock stability
  • PCIe Spread Spectrum - Disable - to increase overclock stability
  • EPU Power Saving Mode - Disabled
  • CPU & NB Voltage - Offset and Manual Mode - Change to Manual Mode for Overclocking
  • CPU Manual Voltage - ** Available under Manual Mode - Increase the CPU Voltage when increasing the CPU frequency.
  • CPU/NB Manual Voltage - ** Available under Manual Mode - IMC Voltage - Increase when overclocking memory - may require an increase when increasing CPU frequency.
  • CPU VDDA Voltage - Default 2.5v. Higher setting 2.695v will stabilize voltages under load but increases temps. Lower setting 2.2v will lower temps.
  • DRAM Voltage - Adjust the voltage for DRAM. Default 1.5v
  • NB Voltage - Adjusts the voltage for the North Bridge Chipset on the motherboard - Default 1.1v
  • NB HT Voltage - Adjusts the voltage for the Hyper Transport - Default 1.2v
  • NB 1.8V Voltage - Adjust the voltage for the Chipset/CPU Multiplier. Higher multi requires more voltage
  • SB Voltage - Adjusts the voltage for the South Bridge Default 1.1v
Recommended Settings up to 5.0Ghz.
M5A97 Users Please see the M5A97 Notes
RECOMMENDED SETTINGS (Click to hide)
  • Ai Overclock Tuner - Manual
  • AMD Turbo CORE Technology - Disabled
  • DRAM 1600Mhz @ 1.5v
  • CPU/NB Frequency - 2200Mhz
  • HT Link Speed - 2600Mhz
  • CPU & NB Voltage - Manual Mode
  • CPU/NB Manual Voltage - Set between 1.25v-1.3v (Increases stability for high overclocks)
  • CPU LLC - Ultra High (75%)
  • CPU/NB LLC - Auto
  • CPU Current Capability - 130%
  • CPU/NB Current Capability - 130%
  • DRAM Current Capability 130%
  • Cool'n'Quiet - Disabled
  • C1E - Disabled
  • SVM - Disabled unless running Virtual Machines
  • Core C6 State - Disabled
  • HPC Mode - Enabled (Some motherboards this has caused freezing so keep that in mind)
  • Amp Master Mode - Disabled

    ***The power saving features should be disabled until you find your stable overclock. Then feel free to re-enable them to benefit from power savings
