The tools section is where you can control additional features of the board such as flashing the BIOS using the ASUS EZ Flash 2 utility, you can enable the Express Gate feature and reset the data to defaults if needed, you can load or save overclocking profiles using the ASUS O.C. Profile section, and you can test the LAN connection using the AI Net 2 utility. You can also turn off the POST State LEDs if necessary so that they do not interfere with your case lighting.
The Ai Tweaker section is where all the overclocking magic happens. ASUS has made this section very easy and user simple. In this section, you can adjust the CPU speeds, system multipliers, memory dividers, and more. You can control the voltages for everything from the CPU to the chipset and memory. All of the values are just keyed in for what you want so you do not have to go through a long list of values. For instance, for the memory, if you want 1.65V, you just enter that amount into the field and that is it. At the bottom of the section, you can also choose how the integrated video is set up such as the memory assigned and the speed at which you want the Sideport chip to run.
Now that we have the BIOS configured, we can move on to the testing.
