Closer Look:

Being the person that I am, I like to push my hardware as far as it can go - and the BIOS gives you the ability to change and tweak the settings to get the most out of your system. We are going to take a look at the BIOS of the Sapphire PI-AM2RS780G mainboard to see what makes it tick.

 

Main Section & Standard Section:

The BIOS' main page is like a menu, listing the different sections of the BIOS where the tweaking magic happens. This allows you to have the options grouped together, so you do not have to spend a lot of time searching for them. The BIOS is also where you can load system defaults and save the settings for reboot. The Standard CMOS Features page allows you to control the date and time, and the drive configurations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Advanced BIOS Features:

The Advanced BIOS section lets the user alter the disk boot order, boot options, and explore the CPU Features page - which includes options for enabling virtualization and the TLB fix for older Phenom Processors.

 

 

Advanced Chipset Features:

The Advanced Chipset Features section allows users to control DRAM settings, the HT Link, HD audio, and PCI-Express and Integrated Graphics options.

 

 

 

 

Integrated Peripherals:

The Integrated Peripherals page lets you configure on-board peripherals, including the Super I/O functions, PCI Devices, Onboard LAN and USB, and Hard Drives and SATA connections. The SATA Device page allows users to switch between IDE, RAID, or ACHI modes for hot-swap plug and play.
