There is really not alot of fluff when it comes to the biosof this board. As a budget board, it is not designed to be an enthusiast tweaking board. This board is designed to set-it-and-forget-it! (Thank you Ron Popeil for that phrase!) I have a whole page dedicated to see the bios, so let's look at some pages, even if they are not that interesting!
Boot page, umm, you set your boot devices here...
The health page has very little information. Just a few temps and voltages, but that should be enough with this board.
The CPU configuration page will give us the rest of the content for the bios page. It is here that we will find the most interesting settings.
DDR can be set to run at DDR2 400/533/667. We would have like to have seen a DDR2 800 option, since there is so much ram out there that can do that speed, but hey, this is a budget board, and 667 should be good enough.
The last page shows that we can set the CPU FSB to a max of 350. This is more than enough, as you will see from our overclocking page.
That is all that we want to look at in the bios, let's move along to out testing.
