Closer Look:

Motherboard Intelligent BIOS (M.I.B.):

The Motherboard Intelligent BIOS section is where the fun begins. You can alter the frequencies of your CPU and memory, as well as adjust the voltages for them. There's quite an abundance of options here, but the one thing I wish they had was an option to unlink the CPU and memory. Other than that, this BIOS is loaded with settings you can alter for overclocking. The multiplier can be set from 6x up to 8x, and the CPU frequency can be set from 100MHz to 1200MHz.









You can alter so many settings with the memory, and when I first saw the plethora of options, I was stunned! The vCore for the CPU has excellent steppings, and goes all the way up to 2.3v - yikes!




We've covered the BIOS, now it's time to see the included programs and drivers.
