S2K Bus Driving Strength
Common Options : Auto, Manual
This BIOS feature determines if the motherboard chipset should automatically adjust the drive strength of the Athlon processor bus or allow manual configuration.
If you set this feature to Auto, the chipset is allowed to dynamically adjust the S2K bus strength or use values pre-set by the manufacturer.
If you set this feature to Manual, the chipset's dynamic compensation circuitry for the S2K bus is turned off. You can then manually set the S2K bus strength.
Generally, it is recommended that you set this feature to Auto so that the S2K bus strength can be dynamically adjusted by the chipset. However, there may be occasions when manual configuration of the S2K bus driving strength may be desirable.
It is possible to make use of this feature for overclocking purposes. Increasing the drive strength increases the stability of the S2K bus. But please be very, very circumspect when you increase the S2K bus drive strength with an overclocked processor as you may be irreversibly damage the processor!
If you wish to manually configure the S2K bus driving strength, you must set the S2K Bus Driving Strength to Manual. This allows you to manually set the S2K bus driving strength value via the S2K Strobe P Control and S2K Strobe N Control BIOS features.
