QUOTE(Greyhound @ Aug 7 2005, 11:51 PM)Well, you did notice that your board wouldn't even boot if you enabled the 2T-option in BIOS...
If you take a look at the appropriate datasheet/documentation (see above link), you'll notice that there is no 2T-option specified for 940-pin parts.
As for why the option is even present, my guess would be that being mainly a desktop-board manufacturer, Asus used a similar BIOS as in their desktop-offerings and just modified/optimized it for their Socket 940 board, leaving the 2T-option, even tho it's not really usable.
After all, there isn't that much of an architectural difference beween a Socket 940 and Socket 939 board and the chipset can be used on both platforms anyway.
Concerning the software-thing, I wouldn't be too sure that any software-adjustments you're making actually have a noticable effect at all...have you tried some benchmarks with different timing-options set via software?
By specification, you shouldn't be able to do this (see the document I linked in my previous post)... /ph34r.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='ph34r.gif' />
However, motherboard manufacturers do sometimes choose to allow configurations (especially concerning memory) that are feasible, but not officially supported by the processor or chipset.
A good example for this would be the fact that many motherboards based on the old VIA KT400-chipset did support running one or two sticks of memory at DDR400-speeds, even tho the chipset did not *officially* support this (despite the name) as official DDR400 support was added only with the KT400's successor, the KT400A
Of course I have run benchmarks between 1T and 2T with all four double sided sticks. BTW, Sandra incorrectly reports everything at 2T no matter what, which I believe is just a function of 4 sticks installed.
