Next up: the bios. Asrock mostly doesn't really spend to much time (and thus money) on this part of the development. Why? No idea, to be honest, as most boards come with all standard options. Let's have a closer look at the most interesting options; we'll skip the ones that are standard on really every board.Bios: MainBios: AdvancedBios: Advanced: Cpu configurationBios: Advanced: Chipset settings
Yes! Asrock changed it's voltage changing policy, which used to be limited to 3, maximum 4 options: low, midle, high, highest. Oh wait ... there it is:
NB/SB/VTT/GTL voltages are quite important these days. Vtt cannot be set too high or you risk to kill your cpu, however, as Asrock doesn't tell you at what level these voltages are set to, there's no way of telling which option is safe. I really hope that Asrock will change this in the future and make the voltages somewhat understandable for the common man.
