The AN11 Stealth is a jumperless motherboard that uses the Award BIOS to control and fine-tune the system which is great for beginners as jumpers can just be so confusing for the new man on the scene and are much easier to use anyways.

There is one set of switches located on the board for changing the CPU core voltage and the jumper to clear the CMOS is very easily located and marked on the motherboard for easy access.

The AN11 incorporates a feature called the overclock partner, which allows you to reboot the system after you increase the settings of the BIOS to an unstable state. This is a great thing for the overclocker when trying for that peak performance plateau that sometimes results than other than favourable results. Take a look below to see how this is done.

Complete the following steps:

  1. Turn the system off.
  2. Restart while holding down the Insert key. It is important that the Insert key is held down until the default clock speed is shown on the POST screen.
  3. Enter BIOS settings menu, and re-set to the clock speed desired or back to system default.

I had no problems of any kind with setting up and configuring the system, as it was very straightforward and easy to understand especially if you read the manual cover to cover to familiarize yourself with all the BIOS features and what their purpose is.
