Closer Look:

Integrated Peripherals:

The integrated peripherals setting gives you options to set your onboard devices. As with other motherboards, these will be USB support, HDD function, Audio, SATA etc. You will notice that there is a Surroundview function that is disabled. Surroundview when enabled, offers multi-adapter/multi-monitor support if you choose to use a PCI-E based graphics card in conjunction with the onboard graphics.

 

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.

 

 

 

Frequency/Voltage Control:

The Frequency/Voltage Control is where you will have options to change clock speeds and voltages. There are not many options to use and the max FSB offered is 233. It is nice that this is added, but I would suggest leaving these settings to auto. Remember the reason for purchasing an integrated motherboard is either to build that extra computer for the kids, or run an HTPC. For both of these options, are you really looking to overclock?

 

 

Once you have configured all your settings, save the BIOS to CMOS and reboot your computer.
