Closer Look:

Any true overclocker will spend a lot of time in the infamous BIOS. The BIOS is where the true potential of your system will come to life. I am going to take you thru the BIOS of the XFX 680i so you get an idea of what you can do on this system board.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Standard CMOS Features:

This section allows you to control the system date/time, and the configuration of your drives.

 

Advanced BIOS Features:

This section allows you to control boot priorities and devices, as well as let you select boot tests, like memory testing, etc.

 

Advanced Chipset Features:

This section is what will give you the most control over the system settings. We will be going over that more in the latter part of this section.

 

Integrated Peripherals:

This section allows yoy to control you USB and Firewire ports, your onboard audio and serial controls, and most importantly to set up your RAID arrays for your disk drives.

 

 

Power Management Setup:

This tab allows you to control the ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) of the system and the power on alarms and functions.

 

PnP / PCI Configurations:

The PnP/PCI configurations allow you to control the Plug and Play options and control the IRQs for the components.

 

System Monitor:

The system monitor tab allows you to view the system temperatures, voltages, and fan speeds to ensure a smooth running computer. Here you can even set your own speeds for the system fans.
