Moreover, you can access memory timing section from here.

Note that the board supports 1T Command Rate. This memory controller parameter is enabled easily, without any complications, at up to 1GHz DDR2 SDRAM speed.

Over Voltage section gives access to the following voltages:

Parameter

Supported Range

Vcore Voltage

0.83125 - 1.9 V

Memory Voltage

1.85 – 3.425 V

1.2 HT Voltage

1.2 – 1.95 V

NB Core Voltage

1.2 – 2.75 V

SB Core Voltage

1.5 – 1.85 V

CPU VTT Voltage

1.2 – 1.55 V

DDRII Controller Ref Voltage

DDR2_Vol/2-30mV - DDR2_Vol/2+30mV

DDRII Channel A Ref Voltage

DDR2_Vol/2-30mV - DDR2_Vol/2+30mV

DDRII Channel B Ref Voltage

DDR2_Vol/2-30mV - DDR2_Vol/2+30mV

The list of adjustable voltages is quite extensive. Almost any type of overclocking is possible on this mainboard without any additional voltmodding.

By the way, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that all voltages may be set to Auto. In this case the mainboard will adjust all voltages depending on the selected FSB frequency.

There were a lot of complaints about the first BIOS versions, because the mainboard would set the voltages not precisely enough. This problem has been partially solved in the later BIOS versions. Nevertheless, in the latest BIOS 803 the mainboard would raise above the set value the North and South Bridge voltages by 0.02V, the Vmem, CPU VTT Voltage and 1.2 HT Voltage by 0.07V.

Besides the options designed solely for overclocking purposes, the BIOS Setup of ASUS Striker Extreme also boasts a few other curios features. Firstly, it allows saving the settings profiles in the Flash-memory and even in files. Secondly, it features built-in EZ Flash 2 utility that helps to reflash the BIOS without even quitting the BIOS Setup.

This utility can grab the new BIOS versions from Floppy, CD and hard drives formatted for FAT, and even USB flash drives.
