Other available voltage settings are not as interesting, I must say. The only other parameter you might want to check out is the MCH 1.25V Voltage: the chipset North Bridge voltage that can be pushed up to 1.72V with variable increment.

Now let’s go back to the OC Guru page. By clicking the right arrow you can get to ABIT EQ section:

This section offers you extensive temperature monitoring:

You can also monitor different system voltages:

As well as rotation speeds of multiple fans:

You can monitor the rotation speed of six fans connected to the abit IP35 Pro mainboard. Moreover, you can make their rotation speed dependent on certain temperatures and hence automatically adjustable.

By the way, unlike many other contemporary mainboards, abit IP35 Pro can control the rotation speed of a three-pin fan plugged into the four-pin processor cooler connector.

To adjust the memory timings, you need to go outside the uGuru Utility section, where you can change the timing settings one by one.

The last BIOS section worth mentioning is the CPU Feature section, where you get access to processor supported technologies:

Well, no one has ever managed to exceed the BIOS features of abit mainboards supporting uGuru technology. But will abit IP35 Pro prove up to our expectations in practical tests? I was very concerned about the performance and overclocking tests, because I really liked the board so far but at the time of the review there was only BIOS version 1.0 available. And as we all know, early BIOS versions are usually pretty raw and do not reveal full overclocking potential of the mainboards.

Well, let’s hold our fingers crossed…
