ASROCK K7S8X-E SiS 748 Mainboard Gallery (3) Bluetooth 3rd June 2003
6 PCI slots and 1 AGP 8x Slot. WInbond I/O controller chip and Cmedia 9739
6 channel audio codec.
A 2 phase design is built
on this board. Although 2 phase, we are able to boot our AXP3200+ (Barton
400MHz) at 215MHz easily without modifications done.
2 IDE channels
supporting 4 HDD of ATA133. The BIOS used is a AMI based BIOS.
There are 3 DIMM slots
support up to 3GB of RAM.
The new SiS 748 North
Bridge which features Hyperstreaming technology for faster performance.
The 963L South bridge which takes care of the IDE interface, USB 2.0 ports
etc. The North and South with 1GB/s bandwidth which is more than
sufficient for the most demanding I/O. Sometimes I wonder why 963 is not
used since it supports 1394. There are two jumpers for selecting the
default FSB of 100, 133,166,200
The CPU Host
Frequency can be set to AUTO (based on jumpers on board) or set Manually.
In Manual mode, the FSB can be set from 100~248 at 1MHz stepping.
In our test, we
set it to Performance, CAS 2, 5-2-2. There are no multiplier control
within BIOS or on board. There are also no voltage options available
in the BIOS for tweaking the board.
