The GA-980FXA-UD5 utilizes a modified version of the popular Phoenix Award BIOS which is split up into several categories:
MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.) - In here is where the overclocking magic happens. You can adjust just about every clock setting, voltage setting and memory timing your hardware has.
Standard CMOS Features - This is where you configure the system date and time, Hard Drive types, and what errors can stop the system from booting.
Advanced BIOS Features - In here you adjust the boot order, features available to the CPU and your primary display adapter.
Integrated Peripherals - All of the peripherals such as IDE, SATA, USB, Audio, and LAN can be configured within this sub-menu.
Power Management - This menu is pretty self explanatory. Use it to change all of the power saving features that come with the board.
PC Health Status - CPU temperature, System Temperatures, fan speeds, and voltages can be seen in this menu.
Anyone who has built their own PC has seen most of these menus, what most likely is new to you is the MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.) menu, which is the holy grail for modern overclocking. There literally is no hardware frequency, timing, or voltage you can not control in this menu.
Inside the M.I.T. menu you will find several sub-menus:
- CPU Clock Ratio
- CPU NorthBridge Ratio
- CPU Host Clock Controll
- CPU Frequency(MHz)
- PCIE Clock (MHz)
- PCIE Spread Spectrum
- HT Link Width
- HT Link Frequency
- Sent Memory Clock
- Memory Clock
- DRAM Configuration
- System Voltage Control
- CPU PLL Voltage Control
- DRAM Voltage Control
- DDDR VTT Voltage Control
- NB Voltage Control
- HT Link Voltage Control
- NB/PCIe/PLL Voltage Control
- CPU NB VID Control
