BIOS Pt2

The Advanced screen gives us the chance to turn Hyper-threading off as well as C1E state and the normal CPU feature adjustment that Intel provide.

Full screen boot logos. Hugely irritating and probably the first thing that gets turned off. They are the equivalent to "congratulations on purchasing the...." blurb you get at the beginning of manuals. Yes we know what we've brought. Now let us focus on what we're doing with it.

The monitoring elements are unchanged from previous BIOS' we've seen with various temperature monitors and settings, as well as thermal shut-down levels.

Despite being much simpler to overclock automatically, it's much more complex to do so manually and so you'll be making good use of the many BIOS save slots available to you.

As with any new chip release there is a new chipset. If there is a new chipset, it's time for a new ROG board. Today the Maximus IV Extreme.

Well they'll get better press if you let you use it when it's all patched up.Quote

Feedback for your graphs.

You should add static values to each bar to make it easier to compare between them. There are so many graphs associated with reviews such as yours, would be nice to be able to move more quickly through them.

And especially in cases like the wprime95 in your new LGA 1155 review where the 1024M values are so high they stretch the scale, leaving almost no resolution for displaying the 1M results. So you have to hover the mouse over each of them.

Also just post them as pictures, the animations don't really add anything to it and pictures will probably load faster. But most importantly you gain compatibility with non flash compatible mobile devices.

I mostly read review and do research when commuting and being out of the house. Most other sites work for that, but yours.

Other than that, thanks for a great site. I appreciate the amount of detail you out into your work.

Looking forward to see how far you can get the i7-2600K on boards like the new UD7 from Gigabyte. I don't really trust the Digi+ VRM and UEFI bios yet. Quote

So is EFI just a new bios with a GUI or does allow for really fast boot times too?Quote

It should be faster in theory, although it doesn't appear to be so far..Quote

It does fit on my P8P67 Deluxe. So I would say yes Quote

I have the same question, i.e. will the NH-D14 fit and allow for RAM with heat sinks.

Woops. Looks like that is what you used in your review. Now I know it fits.

Thx!
