Closer Look:

Standard CMOS Features, Advanced BIOS Features & Integrated Peripherals:

The Gigabyte EP35-DS4 uses an Award BIOS. This motherboard actually has “Dual BIOS” technology, which means if one BIOS gets trashed, there is a second available for you. I am very impressed with this feature because as an enthusiast I've wrecked so many BIOSs with bad overclocks or other tweaks that didn't go so well. The main categories that open other menus are Standard CMOS Features, Advanced BIOS Features, Integrated Peripherals, Power Management Setup, PnP/PCI Configurations, PC Health Status, and MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.). Below are screenshots of some of the standard features from within “Advanced BIOS Features” and “Integrated Peripherals”.















PC Health & Power Management Setup:

Here you can monitor the temperatures of your CPU, system, your voltages, and fan RPMs. Under the tab labled “Power Management Setup” you’ll find multiple options for you to configure your power settings to your needs.




Motherboard Intelligent Tweaker:

The M.I.T menu is where you can find options to overclock your CPU, memory, and system. These options are rather standard for most BIOSs today.



Let's get a better look at the M.I.T.
