Biostar P35 T Series TP35D3-A2 Deluxe - BIOS and Overclocking

We look at a DDR3 based P35 motherboard from Biostar today which promises terrific bang for buck.

BIOS

 

 

Biostar's choice of BIOS is the Award Phoenix Modular BIOS using the blue screen with sub menu style layout. This is the most familiar BIOS to us as it has been around since the 486 days, only more refined now. All the overclocking features lie under the overclock navigator engine menu.

 

 

Buses

 

CPU Clock: 200 - 600 in 1MHz Increments

 

PCIE Frequency: 100 - 200 in 1MHz Increments

 

Voltages

 

CPU Voltage: +0.12v to +0.787v in 0.012v increments

 

Memory Voltage: +0.5v to 0.35v in 0.05v Increments

 

FSB Termination Voltage: 1.35v to 1.55v in 0.05v increments

 

(G)MCH voltage: 1.35v to 1.55v in 0.05v increments

 

Overclocking

 

 

Overclocking the Biostar board was quite good. With its DDR3 memory support we managed to get the board to a respectable 535MHz FSB. While it can't beat our P35T's top speed of 583MHz, it's still well within what we would expect from a P35 board.

 

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.
