Albatron KX18D Pro Motherboard.
going on this, I find that there are lottsa links to reviews.
a few of 'emhttp://www.tweaknews.net/reviews/albanf2/http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1457http://www.amdboard.com/albatron_kx18d_pro_II.html
bottomline seems to be: basically fast, and good, also a good board for a non-expert it seems.
good choice, nice price.
so, what does it all mean?
well, I dunno it all.
The manufacturer has a lot to say about it, also:http://www.albatron.com.tw/english/it/mb/s...n.asp?pro_id=72
BIOS, in particular starts here:
R1.03 2003/8/12 Initial Release Version
It was last updated this year, (so far) so that's good.
The reviews mention it has two BIOS, one is a backup if you flash it and fail.
That's nice to know.
So I decided to download the Manual.
My manual has a step-by-step BIOS setup and explanation with screenshots that help answer questions.
I thought I might benefit from having the manual to refer to,
since I don't know the answers exactly.
I refer to my own as I learn,
but that information might not apply to yours.http://www.albatron.com.tw/english/it/mb/m...l.asp?pro_id=72
Opening the .pdf document was everything I hoped for.
All of it.
BIOS setup, the whole shootin' match is there in illustrated professional manner.
So, you should download that, and while we wait for someone who knows
The answer, we can refer to the exact instructions and try to figure it out ourselves.
I think there are ways to use kinda default settings, various places that you can let it choose what it's comfortable with.
See, I am not "an over-clocker" myself, but I think I might learn something about anyway. Probably do me good to know. So, let's figure it out.
