  2. Gigabyte P45 is not about efficiency I think you need MCHbar editing for speed. But this is what makes them clock nice.
  3. No, not to me. Well, the point is to make it's behaviour like the original Aquamark. So settings don't get downscaled on modern hardware, only on old ones. Like the original Aquamark was.
  4. IMHO it would be best to behave like original Aquamark - set default settings on auto but when hardware can't make it, lower down to it's capabilities. So you can't lower settings below default for capable hardware (like things are now) but so you can run it on older hardware with lowered settings by Aqua itself. I'll provide any help I can to fix this, just PM me.
  5. This. Menu items have been created, but aren't published on CMOS setup pages. You can open these BIOS files with AMIBCP (3.37 or 3.46) and look at the "BIOS strings" tab. There are some strange names over there. I've got a 4CoreDual-SATA2 board but haven't played with it yet.
  6. Any specific BIOS options or hardware stuff that helped getting there besides voltage? What's interesting, these AsRock board's BIOS has lots of menus hidden. I could unhide them but it'll take much time to test them and how they influence overclocking.
  7. No, comrade. P.S. still hoping to get my nickname back
  8. https://hwbot.org/hardware/motherboard/8486/ Good to see you back!
  9. I believe that at some point (after another update) the wrapper enforced using Aquamark's default settings which are AF at least and maybe some more. But when a hardware can't support these, Aqua would run with downgraded (automatically) settings. And the wrapper detects this downgrade and just throws it out. So I can run Aqua without wrapper but it'll exit immediately using it.
  10. Well, a lot of subtimings and some interesting things like another memory divider setting that allows to set dividers from another strap, not only your current allowing modes like DDR500 and DDR533 at 200FSB. Most of these had an override like cross-flash for dividers or Memset for subtimings but they were already hidden in BIOS so I've made them available via BIOS. Plus many nifty things for benchmarking like disabling LAN/sound/ports and keyboard input for FSB frequency. You can open the BIOS with AMIBCP and look through text strings, the settings are all listed there.
  11. Well, you definitely had a copy 😉
  12. Thought I'd let it go wild. A benchBIOS made by Hardware Hackers (me in particular). Been known by some for about 10 years. The thing is, I didn't add any features, it was all there done by Asus, I've just unlocked them and made some bench-related changes. List of changes: Based on latest 1024 beta Set by CMOS default: 1) No logo screen 2) Floppy disabled 3) IDE timeout = 0 4) Overclocking mode = manual 5) MPS 1.4 6) Timings set manually 7) Spread spectrum disabled 😎 Onboard devices = disabled 9) Speech POST reporter = disabled 10) USB timeout = 10sec
