The motherboards BIOS

To be honest I'm not sure why Gigabyte hides the Advanced Chipset Features. If they wanted to stop the end user from potentially damaging their PC, they should hide the overclocking options. Anyway, a quick CTRL F1 opened up the Advanced chipset features and here we have our usual memory tweaks.

CAS Latency, RAS Active Time and RAS to CAS Delay. We can also adjust the AGP Aperature size as well as enable/disable dual channel memory support.

We have the usual tweaks we'd expect from a performance motherboard. We can adjust the FSB from 200-355 MHz in 1 MHz increments. AGP/PCI can be adjusted independent of the FSB. AGP Voltage goes as high as 1.8V, DDR to 2.7V and CPU to 1.6V. Next up, the benchmarks!
