BIOSTAR TP67XE Intel LGA 1155 Sandy Bridge Motherboard ReviewMon, Mar 14, 2011 - 12:00 AM
BIOSTAR P67 System BIOS
The main page of the BIOSTAR TP67XE BIOS shows you the total memory, BIOS version and build date, and allows you to set the date and time.
The Advanced tab within the BIOSTAR TP67XE system BIOS gives you access to several sub pages, including PCI Subsystem Settings, ACPI Settings/WakeUp Event control, CPU configuration, SATA Configuration, USB Configuration, SMART Fan Control, SUPER IO Configuration and the Hardware Monitor.
Within the CPU Configuration we can enable or disable several of the technologies included within the second generation Intel Core processors.
The SATA configuration page will allow you to switch between IDE, RAID, and AHCI modes. For our testing today we will be using the AHCI mode for our Kingston and Crucial SSD’s.
The USB configuration page isn’t all that exciting, but we can enable or disable various USB features.
The BIOSTAR TP67XE has SMART Fan Control.
Here we have the PC Health Status; I recommend coming to this page first thing when building a new system; you may just notice a critical fan not working or a voltage way off specification. A few seconds here may just save you the frustration of an RMA.
The Boot tab of the BIOSTAR TP67XE BIOS allows you change the boot order of your drives among a few other features that you can see above.
The security tab allows you to set the passwords for both the User and Administrator.
The BIOSTAR TP67XE has a page with the acronym O.N.E.; this is defined as Overclocking Navigator Engine. Here we will find all of the settings we will need to overclock our processor.
Above we can see all of the memory features are on the same page as the CPU. This means that we don’t have to jump between pages as work on overclocking the system.
The voltages for the BIOSTAR TP67XE are located on the bottom of the O.N.E. page as well. BIOSTAR also has placed the memory insight feature here.
