BIOS

BIOS options on mini-ITX boards are typically spartan. The presence of an IGP and the extremely limited cooling associated with the platform makes manufacturers nervous about allowing users the ability to customize their clock/voltage settings.

Notable Available BIOS Adjustments
Setting
Options
CPU FSB N/A
CPU Voltage N/A
Memory Frequency 400/533/667Mhz
Memory Timings Basic
Memory Voltage N/A
Video Memory Size 32MB, 64MB, 128MB

Typical of Intel motherboards, the BIOS is completely locked down with only the very basic memory options available. It doesn't look like we'll be overclocking Atom today.


"Boot Configuration."

There is some limited fan control available — a fixed speed of between 50% and 100% for any fan connected to the system fan header.


"Hardware Monitoring."

The Hardware Monitoring section provides a basic readout of the system's temperatures, voltages and fan speeds.
