EPoX's Socket AM2 MF570 SLI Motherboard Reviewed - BIOS and Overclocking

It's been a long time since we reviewed anything from EPoX but today we look at their nForce 570 SLI Socket AM2 board.

BIOS and Overclocking

 

 

The EPoX MF570 SLI uses a standard version 6 Award Modular BIOS that resembles just about every other board out there. This tends to be a good thing as making changes are universal and you don't have to learn a new setup each time.

 

To overclock your board, you will find the features you need under the Power BIOS Features Menu.

 

 

The overclocking features of the board are simple and easy to operate, there aren't that many compared to other boards out there but the ranges you get to change are pretty good:

 

CPU Frequency: 200MHz to 450MHz in 1MHz increments

 

PCIE Clock: 100MHz to 145MHz in 1MHz increments

 

CPU Voltage: -0.2 to +0.35v in 0.025v increments

 

Chipset Voltage: 1.5v to 1.8v in 0.1v increments

 

HT Voltage: 1.2v to 1.5v in 0.1v increments

 

Under the advanced chipset features are the DRAM controls and voltages. DRAM voltage can be set from 1.8v to 2.2v in 0.1v increments.

 

We managed a FSB of 350MHz with this board, not the greatest but certainly not the worst. We used our CPU at default voltage, DRAM was at 2.2v, chipset voltage at 1.7v, HT voltage at 1.5v. We used a 6x Multiplier in our overclocking tests.

 

Important Editor Note: Our maximum overclocking result is the best result we managed in our limited time testing the motherboard. Due to time constraints we don't have enough time to tweak the motherboard to the maximum and find the highest possible FSB as this could take days to properly find. We do however spend at least a few hours overclocking every motherboard to try and find the highest possible overclock in that time frame. You may or may not be able to overclock higher if you spend more time tweaking or as new BIOS updates are released or "burn in" time might come into play if you believe in that.
