The NF4SLI7AA-8ERKS2 has a slightly modified Phoenix Award BIOS. This is common to many of the motherboards on the market today, with the AMI BIOS being the only competition at the moment. The BIOS has the standard Award features along with FOXCONN's SuperUtilities suite to round out the overclocking.

The overclocking options on the board are varied. The options for overclocking the fvoltage on the North Bridge and South Bridge are up to 1.74V for the SB and 1.75V for the North Bridge. DDR2 voltage can be increased up to 2.55V and you can add 800mV to the CPU voltage.The FSB can be set to 790-2000MHz and the memory frequency can be set from 400-1300MHz, both in 1MHz increments. Overclocking on the board was limited by the CPU that we use for testing. The CPU overclocked successfully to an ok overclock, but the 3.8GHz 670 we use for testing tends to run hot and in this case prevented a high overclock.

SuperBoot saves the boot settings so that a subsequent boot can skip them, allowing the motherboard to boot faster. SuperBIOS protects the BIOS from viruses. SuperRecovery can set up a partition on your hard drive to save and recover your CMOS settings, your hard drive partition table and the contents of the hard drive. SuperSpeed is FOXCONNN's jumperless systsem bs overclocking technoogy executed through a dedicated BIOS setting. SuperLogo allows the user to change the boot up logo. SuperUpdate is a Windows-based BIOS updating utility.
