MSI A75MA-G55 Click BIOS

MSI A75MA-G55 AMD Llano Click BIOS

The MSI A75MA-G55 uses a traditional style BIOS though with the added ability to click through the BIOS with a mouse, hence the name Click BIOS (just call me Captain Obvious). Once you boot up the MSI A75MA-G55 and enter the Click BIOS this is the first page you will be presented with. On this Main page of the Click BIOS you will find the drives that you have connected and various information such as the BIOS version, memory size, APU model, and Cache size.

On the Overclocking page of the MSI A75MA-G55 Click BIOS we have all of our settings brought to the maximum. One feature that I noticed that seemed a little on the low side was the Adjust Internal Core Clock. On the MSI A75MA-G55 the maximum frequency is 131 MHz. I’m not sure why MSI has limited this, looking back at the ASUS F1A75-M Pro we had a maximum frequency of 300 MHz.
