Standard CMOS Features, Advanced BIOS Features & Integrated Peripherals:
The Gigabyte EX38-DS4 uses an Award BIOS. It actually has “Dual BIOS” technology so that if one BIOS gets really messed up, it has a second available for you to use. I was very impressed by this feature because I’ve messed up my BIOS countless times. 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:
This is where you can find out the temperatures of your system and CPU, as well as your voltages and fan RPMs. Under “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’ll find all of your options to overclock your system as well as tweak any sort of setting for your memory and CPU. You’ll notice that these options are pretty much standardized for most BIOSes.
Now let's look even deeper into the M.I.T.
