Installation:

Installation of the motherboard is no different than any other motherboard. The case that I chose to use for this project is the Thermaltake Mozart, which is designed to be an HTPC Case. There is no removable motherboard tray, but due to the sheer size of the case itself, there was no problem installing the motherboard after attaching the processor, RAM and Heatsink.

The BIOS:

The Gigabyte GA-MA69G-S3H utilizes Award Bios. Most features are similar to other Award BIOS features, but Gigabyte has added an overclocking feature called MB Intelligent Tweaker, or M.I.T.

 

Logo Screen and Standard CMOS Features:

I normally turn off logo screens, but this one is quite different that most others. It's not too flashy or too dull, and I felt was a nice alternative to the black and white post screen.

 

 

Advanced BIOS Features:

SorroundView is an added feature to this motherboard. 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.

 

 

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.

 

 

Power Management Setup:

 

 

PnP/PCI Configuration:
