The board comes with a Phoenix Award Workstation BIOS. Phoenix BIOSs are the most popular among motherboard manufacturers. eVGA outfits their BIOS with the standard functions of the Phoenix Award BIOS. One thing about the BIOS today is the fact that most boards have an easy to use interface to get the advanced features you expect. eVGA includes a Power User Overclock tab to overclock the PCI Express bus, the CPU FSB, change the voltages and other settings.

Setup of the board was easy and trouble free. eVGA decided to outfit this board with the nForce4 chipset. To enable SLI mode on this board, requires a little work that can pay off in a big way. Enabling SLI mode is a simple matter of removing the heat sink covering the chipset and connecting two points on the nForce4 chipset with a pencil. I was successful enabling it on the board. Anandtech and OCWorkbench have also enabled SLI on a nForce4 Ultra board.
