Foxconn's 945P7AA-8EKRS2 BIOS

Foxconn's 945P7AA-8EKRS2 BIOS
Making it All Tick

When it comes to naming features, Foxconn is big on the word "Super".  There is SuperBoot, SuperBIOS-Protect, SuperRecovery and SuperSpeed.  SuperBoot stores certain BIOS data after first POST, so subsequent POSTs are quicker, while SuperBIOS-Protect locks the BIOS so a Virus cannot find its way in, essentially killing the board.  SuperRecovery is designed to protect hard drive data by storing backups in a hidden partition on another drive.  Lastly, there is SuperSpeed, the system's overclocking menu options. 


The SuperBoot did offer basic overclocking options, including Memory Frequency settings of 400, 533 and 667MHz.  The FSB options were more realistic than the Gigabyte board, ranging from 200 to 265MHz.  The CPU Voltage regulator offered a broad range of precision voltage options from +.0125 through 1.6v in .0125v increments.  The Memory Voltage and System Core Voltage both offered three choices; +.03, +.06 and +.10v.



Something the Foxconn 945P7AA had that the Gigabyte GA-8I945P-G sorely lacked was memory timing options.  Here we found CAS settings of 3, 4, 5 and 6 whereas the CAS to RAS delay and RAS Precharge ranged from 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
