ASUS S-presso Deluxe BIOS Options
The AMI BIOS driving the S-presso Deluxe's yielded few surprises. The system was not designed for overclocking, therefore, the BIOS menu was devoid of any such options. Nonetheless, the system was still relatively flexible with performance options, allowing for a fair degree of control.
There was a fair amount of memory options, including voltage adjustment from 2.6 to 2.7 volts. The frequency was adjustable from SPD, 266, 333 and 400MHz. From a timings standpoint, the CAS latency ranged from 2, 2.5 and 3 as we would expect.
The integrated video could be set to access system memory in increments of 1, 4, 8, 16 and 32MB while the Aperture setting peaked at 256MB.
The hardware monitor feature offered insight into the current state of critical system temperatures, Fan speeds and voltages. The Smart-Q fan option allowed for automatic system fan throttling based on load, which did a great job of minimizing system fan noise. When it came down to using the S-presso Deluxe, there is no doubt that this is one of the quietest mini-PCs to come along in a while.
