1. The items under each BIOS category described in this chapter are under
continuous update for better system performance. Therefore, the description may be slightly different from the latest BIOS and should be held for
reference only.
2. Upon boot-up, the 1st line appearing after the memory count is the BIOS
version. It is usually in the format:

BIOS Setup
Max CPUID Value Limit
The Max CPUID Value Limit BIOS feature allows you to circumvent problems
with older operating systems that do not support the Intel Pentium 4 processor
with Hyper-Threading Technology. W hen enabled, the processor will limit the
maximum CPUID input value to 03h when queried, even if the processor supports a higher CPUID input value. When disabled, the processor will return the
actual maximum CPUID input value of the processor when queried.
Execute Disable Bit Capability
Intel's Execute Disable Bit functionality can prevent certain classes of malicious
"buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system.
This functionality allows the processor to classify areas in memory by where
application code can execute and where it cannot. W hen a malicious worm
attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution,
preventing damage or worm propagation.
Hyper Threading Technology
The processor uses Hyper Threading technology to increase transaction rates
and reduces end-user response times. The technology treats the two cores
inside the processor as two logical processors that can execute instructions
simultaneously. In this way, the system performance is highly improved. If you
disable the function, the processor will use only one core to execute the
instructions. Please disable this item if your operating system doesn’t
support HT Function, or unreliability and instability may occur.
Intel(R) SpeedStep(tm) Tech
EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology) allows the system to dynamically
adjust processor voltage and core frequency, which can result in decreased
average power consumption and decreased average heat production.

status and issuing a warning message if the chassis is once opened. To clear
the warning message, set the field to [Reset]. The setting of the field will
automatically return to [Enabled] later.
CPU Temperature, System Temperature, Sy stem Speed, VCORE,
5VSB, VCC5, 12V, VBAT
These items display the current status of all of the monitored hardware devices/components such as CPU voltage, temperatures and all fans’ speeds.

Set to [Disabled] only if you want to use any USB device other than the USB
mouse.
BIOS EHCI Hand-Off
This setting allows you to enable or disable a workaround for operating systems without EHCI (Enhanced Host Controller Interface) hand-off support. The

Quick Boot
Enabling this setting will cause the BIOS power-on self test routine to skip some
of its tests during bootup for faster system boot.
Quiet Boot
This BIOS feature determines if the BIOS should hide the normal POST messages with the motherboard or system manufacturer's full-screen logo.
W hen it is enabled, the BIOS will display the full-screen logo during the boot-up
sequence, hiding normal POST messages.
When it is disabled, the BIOS will display the normal POST messages, instead of
the full-screen logo.
Please note that enabling this BIOS feature often adds 2-3 seconds of delay to
the booting sequence. This delay ensures that the logo is displayed for a
sufficient amount of time. Therefore, it is recommended that you disable this
BIOS feature for a faster boot-up time.
Bootup Num-Lock
This setting is to set the Num Lock status when the system is powered on.
Setting to [On] will turn on the Num Lock key when the system is powered on.
Setting to [Off] will allow users to use the arrow keys on the numeric keypad.
Wait For ‘F1’ If Error
W hen this setting is set to [Enabled] and the boot sequence encounters an
error, it asks you to press F1. If disabled, the system continues to boot without
waiting for you to press any keys.
Flash Write Protection
This function protects the BIOS from accidental corruption by unauthorized
users or computer viruses.
Boot Device Priority, Removable Drives
The items allow you to set the sequence of boot devices/removable drives. First
press <Enter> to enter the sub-menu. Then you may use the arrow keys ( -¯ ) to
select the desired device, then press <+>, <-> or <PageUp>, <PageDown> key to
move it up/down in the priority list.

Supervisor Password controls access to the BIOS Setup utility. These settings allow
you to set or change the supervisor password.
User Password / Change User Password
User Password controls access to the system at boot. These settings allow you to
set or change the user password.
Boot Sector Virus Protection
This function protects the BIOS from accidental corruption by unauthorized users or
computer viruses. W hen enabled, the BIOS’ data cannot be changed when attempting to update the BIOS with a Flash utility. To successfully update the BIOS, you’ll
need to disable this Flash BIOS Protection function.
You should enable this function at all times. The only time when you need to disable
it is when you want to update the BIOS. After updating the BIOS, you should immediately re-enable it to protect it against viruses.

the memory allocated to either system or graphics processor.
It is recommended that you set this BIOS feature to DVMT Mode for maximum
performance. Setting it to DVMT Mode ensures that system memory is dynamically allocated for optimal balance between graphics and system
performance.
