It looks like MSI have done away with AMI BIOS's and moved to the more popular Award BIOS. We still have all the usual tweaks we come to expect from a performance motherboard though.

In the Advanced Chipset Features, I was surprised to find overclocking options. The K7N2G-ILSR allows users to chose any FSB between 100-200 MHz but unlike most other motherboards we can't input the FSB we want - the user must scroll through the numbers which can be a bit annoying. There are a whole slew of FSB/DRAM ratios which is extremely helpful, but to be honest they a bit redundant because the AthlonXP cannot use that much bandwidth.

We have the usual memory tweaks we expect and there are also a few AGP tweaks here as well.

In Frequency/Voltage Control we can set the AGP speed to anything between 66 and 120 MHz. The AGP voltage can be raised to 1.7V and the DIMM voltage can go as high as 2.7V. There are multiplier controls for unlocked Athlon processors and the CPU voltage can be raised as high as 1.8V.
