BIOS

For enthusiasts, the options available within the BIOS can make a good board, a great one. The ability to manipulate frequencies, voltages, and fan control settings vary depending on the hardware and the amount of trust placed in the user's hands by the manufacturer.


"Ai Tweaker" menu with maximum values entered.

The Ai Tweaker menu is unintimidating with plenty of options. Ample CPU, chipset and DRAM voltage and frequency settings are available and with an unlocked CPU, the multiplier can be increased to an insane level.


"Hardware Monitor."

The Hardware Monitor section displays three fan speeds, and has three different settings for the CPU and Chassis fans: Silent, Optimal and Performance.
