If you were entering the BIOS expecting it to be watered down and devoid of options, then you'll be pleasantly surprised. The guaranteed first thing to catch your eye will be the MB Intelligent Tweaker. Thats right; overclocking on a integrated processor. Moving into the M.I.T menu, you'll find a decent set of options. Here you can increase the core speed via the host clock control, raise the memory multiplier, and control system voltages. You can even overclock the onboard graphics from here, but more on that later. Moving on you'll find you Standard CMOS Features, like IDE control and system time. Next are the advanced BIOS features, where you can configure the onboard graphics, control the system cooling, set boot priority, and tweak your other typical advanced features. Next is Integrated Peripherals, where you have control over SATA, LAN, Audio, and USB — all standard fare. Power management also contains your standard options, such as Suspend Type, USB Wake, etc. Lastly is the compulsory PC Health Status page, where you can control the Case Open Status and view system voltages, temperatures, and fan speeds.
With our BIOS settings out of the way, let's get to the testing.
