PC Health Status
As you might guess, you can see various system temps and other information here. You also have the ability to set a “Shutdown Temperature”. Most BIOSs will usually include a “Shutdown on CPU Fan fail” and and “Alarm Temperature” temperature setting, I've always found both of those settings to be pointless, and they are not available in this BIOS. - Just remember to set the “Shutdown Temperature” setting, so if your CPU fan does happen to quit working, you wont fry your AMD64.


The Smart Fan Control option, allows the system to automatically adjust the CPU fan speed as needed by increasing temperature. Personally, I like to keep my fan running at full speed.

 

Frequency/Voltage Control
On the Chaintech motherboard, this was one of the best menus, as you could change just about everything. With the Foxconn motherboard, this menu is just about useless.

 

Silicon Image RAID BIOS
The Sil RAID BIOS/Configuration is available as the system boots, and allows you to configure the RAID settings on SATA 3 & 4.

 

SiS RAID BIOS
The SiS RAID BIOS/Configuration is available as the system boots, provided that you have the SiS Serial ATA Mode set to RAID in the SiS OnChip PCI Device sub menu of Integrated Peripherals in the main system BIOS.
