Jetway 966PDAG-PB Review - 5 Overclock/BIOS

Written by Eliot Kucharik

Review: Budget board beats high-end.




Overclock/BIOS:

This is a budget board, so do not expect miracles. We managed to get a stable 350MHz FSB, so even the new CPUs with 333MHz FSB will fit with overclocked settings.

We had troubles to use PC2-6400U memory kits with overclocked FSB, we guess the timings inside the chipset were set too high for higher FSB or an FSB-strap did not kick in. After four weeks of explaining to the Jetway support they finally understood the problem and fixed this issue.

The board run without problems when memory was set to 1000MHz.

The BIOS setting for memory setting is confusing, because you have to set DDR2-667 to get DDR2-800 with FSB 320, we would have prefered memory multiplicators.

When you want to run the board with FSB333 we recommand to increase the northbridge voltage slightly to insure stable operation.

Here some BIOS pictures:
