Closer Look:

Power Management:

In the Power Management section the user has the ability to change the ACPI Suspend Type, actions for when the power button is pressed, and resume operation for different devices like the mouse and LAN connection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PCI/PnP Setup / PC Health Status:

The PCI/PnP Setup section is where you can select which interface to boot first, either PCI or PCI-e. Next to that is the PC Health Status section, where you can monitor system temperatures and fan speeds. Also, you can set shutdown and warning temps to prevent a disaster should something fail.

 

 

Frequency & Voltage Control / AMD CPU Function / Smart Fan:

The last three sections are Frequency & Voltage Control, AMD CPU Function, and Smart Fan. With these you can alter the systems CPU clock speeds and CPU/Memory voltages to aid in overclocking stability and control the CPU's P-States. P-States is the same things as Cool & Quiet, which allows you to lower the voltage and speed when the computer is not in full use, to lower temps and energy consumption. The Smart Fan section allows you to change fan speeds based on target temperatures.
