Besides SuperStep, the SuperUtility suite includes a Windows-based BIOS reflash utility called SuperUpdate. I used it to update the mainboard’s BIOS and found it quite convenient.
Talking about Foxconn’s software at large, I can’t call it very helpful. You are offered almost the same controls as in the BIOS Setup and which, as I said above, are insufficient for comfortable overclocking.
To check out the overclocking potential of the mainboard, I took an engineering sample of the Pentium 4 560 Prescott processor which allowed changing its frequency multiplier. I reduced it to 14x and began to increase the FBS clock rate steadily. Cutting it short, I found the maximum of the FSB frequency at 265MHz. This result is normal for ordinary Pentium 4 5xx processors and I kind of transformed this Pentium 4 560 into a Pentium 4 Extreme Edition.
The results of my experiments are shown on the next CPU-Z screenshots:
