BIOS

The BIOS now and this is where ASUS always puts a lot of work into their boards. Unlike the ROG series of boards, the P6T6 WS Revolution board uses the standard AI Tweaker menu for its overclocking The board's BIOS is run through the Award 6 tab BIOS as we like to call it; familiar if you use Intel Desktop boards or any of ASUS' other boards on the market.

ASUS doesn't put all of its overclocking and tweaking under the AI Tweaker menu. Under the Advanced Chipset tab you can find a few extra menus, namely the CPU Features setup.

Under the CPU configuration menu you can change the CPU multiplier depending on what CPU you have. If you are using a Core i7 series you can adjust it from its default value or the value that the Speedstep enables to help bus overclocking. If you have the Extreme series you can lower or raise the multiplier at will as well as disable the overpower protection.

The AI Tweaker menu holds all of the bus adjustments, divider and ratios as well as voltages to help tweak the board. While not as extensive as the ROG boards, it does have a fairly good range of settings.

 

Overclocking

The ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution board is extremely tweakable for a Workstation board. While we didn't have as much time as we would like, we did managed to hit 175MHz to allow us to get a 3.8GHz clock speed; not bad at all.

 

Important Editor Note: Our maximum overclocking result is the best result we managed in our limited time of testing the motherboard. Due to time constraints we weren't able to tweak the motherboard to the absolute maximum and find the highest possible FSB, as this could take days to find properly. 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. "Burn-in" time might also come into play if you believe in that.
