My System Specs

Default Different bios terminology

Not sure where to post this,

I remember seeing somewhere on the net a chart that showed the different terminology from the different bios manufacturer.
(I don't see why they should have different terminology for the same thing)

Anyways, I'm having my Gigabyte UD7 X58 sent back for repair and I bought an Asus sabertooth (on super special) while waiting but their bios terminology is totally different then the gigabyte one.

I should have bookmarked that page.

Hope someone here has seen it.

It's an X58, I know it sounds pretty newbie (because I am...) but it took me 4ever to get the nerves to oc my UD7 and now that i have the Asus I'm kind of back to square one.

Here's a few examples,
Gigabyte: CPU Vcore = Asus: CPU ratio setting
Gigabyte: DRAM Voltage = Asus: DRAM bus voltage

...and I'm not even sure if those are the same things.
Maybe I should just wait to get my Gigabyte back.
