Closer Look:

The BIOS of the Sapphire Pure 785G, just as in the 780G, is somewhat limited, but gives you just enough to get you by. To help you navigate, the BIOS is broken down into sections based on the operation you are looking to perform. In addition to normal operations, there are also advanced settings that allow you to overclock parts of your hardware to gain the maximum speed you can.


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. You can also set virtualization settings when running virtual Operating Systems on your computer.



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 onboard 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.
