I just got a Soltek and it offers skew settings, does anyone know how to use the skew settings?

I don't have a Soltek, but have never seen "skew" settings. This piqued my curiosity and I have emailed Soltek tech support with an inquiry. When (and if) I get a reply I will happily share :D

Surprisingly, there was an email awaiting me when I got home from work just now. Not surprisingly I didn't get an answer as yet because the tech wants to know what model the mobo is.
If you'll post model number of your Soltek we may actually get a quick response. :)

They have sent a reply. Following is a copy of their answer, I can only guess that something is lost in translation:

Hello Sir:
This is Vincent from Taipei Soltek.Regarding to this problem.I thought
that these option(AGP,PCI,Chip,CPU) usually used for delay the clock for
these device.the unit was pico-second.

I will see if I can get a bit clearer explaination. :)

The latest ECS K7S5A BIOS has a new setting for a memory driver slew rate with options for normal and fast. Are you sure it is skew?

Nope, "skew".
