The integrated peripherals setting gives you options to set your onboard devices. As with other motherboards, these will be USB support, audio, SATA, etc. You will notice that there is an option to turn on/off the onboard HDMI sound.
Power Management Setup and Pnp/PCI Configuration:
There is nothing special about these two features, they seem to be the norm as with every Phoenix BIOS.
PC Health Status:
PC Health Status has options to enable or disable smart fan functions, as well as allowing you to set options for shutdown and warning temperatures.
Abit's "Soft Menu" function is a lite version of their "uGuru" overclocking function which has become very common with Abit's higher end boards. "Soft Menu," when set to user define, will allow you to change your frontside bus on the processor, the multiplier, PCI-E MHz, CPU and RAM voltages. (For overclocking see extras later in this review)
