The mainboard is the Intel one, so it won't offer overclocking capabilities or advanced timing control. Its setup, available by pressing F2 key.
However, you can alter memory timings by invoking the "Maintenance" menu, then selecting "Extended configuration" as "User-defined". This menu is present only when the system is in configuration mode. You can enter configuration mode by swapping BIOS jumper from 1-2 to 2-3 (closer to the mainboard's edge).
This mainboard is still supported by Intel - visit their
D815BN support page to get a large manual, BIOS and drivers!
Alternative driver package: Archived. In 2019 Intel did the Intel thing and removed all these boards from their support.
