The board uses the AWARD BIOS that is still the most commonly recognized basic input output system and one that most users are familiar with. Overclocking options are limited, but functional as the board was not designed for the hard core enthusiast in any case. The BIOS can be flashed for updates and changes and is removable in case of BIOS failure so it can be replaced. There is a special tool they sell at Fry's or other PC places for carefully removing the bad chip without damaging the board.
Wake-on-LAN (WOL), Suspend-to-RAM (STR) and Suspend-to-Disc (STD) are all supported and Foxconn provides a series of tools called super utilities to help with the running of your system. The Foxconn super tools offer, recovery, BOOT, update, logo and performance stepping options for the user and the BIOS can be protected from flashing or entered by unwanted users. Using the BIOS and finding your way around can be achieved by first reading the manual and then using the internet to find out what the different settings equate to. Overclocking is a time-honed skill that is best done in baby steps for those new to the game. Trust me this will save you time, by either saving your board from going from a working to RMA state or getting a fried out CPU from lack of cooling or too much voltage.
