I found the BIOS for the AX4SG Max to be very simple to use. I am used to tweaking the BIOS on an AMD system, and I found this BIOS much easier to use compared to some other Intel system BIOS's I have seen. The photo above shows the different settings you can change for overclocking this motherboard. The volt settings we have selected above are the max this board offers for CPU, AGP, and DDR volts.
The two photos above show the options available for changing the FSB and DDR Frequencies. This BIOS could technically allow you go all the way up to 1600 FSB (QDR)! And the DDR frequency options are the multiplier for the RAM clock speed.
This section of the BIOS comes standard on pretty much every BIOS out there. It allows you to change standard BIOS options like device boot order.
AOpen has added an interesting feature to their PC Health section. They allow you to change how fast your system fans run. The number you enter is the percentage of the fan's default speed.
AOpen also has the typical monitoring section in their BIOS.
Now we will get into the sections you have been waiting for! Next I will tell you about our test system.
