Sapphire PI-AM3RS785G 785G Chipset Motherboard Review


Closer Look:


Power Management, Miscellaneous Control & PC Health:

These BIOS pages provide control over how the system manages power usage and resources. Systems temperature, fan speed, and voltage measurements are provided, so that you can make the correct adjustments needed to maintain the PC's health. In the Miscellaneous Control section, you can assign IRQs and select the Onboard Graphics mode for running IGP, enable Hybrid Graphics, or disable the IGP to use only a discrete video card.















Thermal Throttling:

Thermal Throttling allows users to command the motherboard to throttle down the CPU if the computer gets too hot. This tool allows you to specify the temperature at which this feature activates, and how much to slow the CPU.



Power User Overclock Settings:

This is the section that gets me drooling all over the place, as it's where you can adjust the CPU speeds, HT Link speeds, CPU Ratios, Multipliers and Voltages to maximize the performance of your components. The VCore can be adjusted using the 7 Phase Shift, offering a 5% to 35% voltage boost. The RAM can be set to run at speeds ranging from DDR-400 to DDR-1066, and the voltage can be increased by .05v increments.
