2 Foxconn MARS P35 Motherboard Overclocking BIOS

While it is a little slow for Foxconn to be still fine-tuning
their Intel Bearlake P35 chipset Overclocker’s Motherboard, this upcoming
Motherboard from the new MARS series of Motherboards, does seem to know the
Overclockers’ Psyche well, if the BIOS is anything to go by! An exploration of
the BIOS will explain better…

I’d never had thought of a medieval theme for a boot-up screen
of a Motherboard called MARS, but I like medieval stuff, so this was a pleasant
surprise.

I guess "Gladiator BIOS" somewhat explains the Medieval theme.

It is good to see the voltages monitored in the PC Health menu
not stingy:

Instead of just the bare minimum power supply rails and VCore,
you also get DRAM and Northbridge chipset real-time monitoring. That’s one tick
towards the overclocking direction.

Russell Crowe ought to be proud of what’s in here, the
Gladiator BIOS menu. You get control over CPU-supported features, as you see in
the lower menu:

PMM Mode is a vague option, but I’ve seen a Foxconn Engineer
change it to SMM mode from Native mode when overclocking.

Very adequate Memory Timing Selections so no one will have
anything to complain here!
