ASRock uses a modified American Megatrends AMIBIOS for their BIOS. The main screen is split into Main, OC Tweaker, Advanced, H/W Monitor, Boot, Security and Exit. The Main screen has the system date and time, the BIOS version, the Processor type, the processor speed, the MicroCode update, the cache size and the memory type and size.

The Advanced Menu has the CPU Configuration, the Chipset Configuration, the ACPI Configuration, the Storage configuration, the PCIPnP configuration the SuperIO Configuration and the USB Configuration screens. The CPU Configuration is where you set the CPU Features; the Chipset Configuration is where the Primary Graphics Adapter and integrated video settings, the Onboard HD Audio and the LAN is set.

The tweaking of the motherboard and CPU is done in the O.C. Tweaker menu. The Turbo 50 menu allows you to overclock your CPU to give up to 50% performance increase. I was unable to use the Turbo 50 mode on my Intel Core i5-661 which is clocked at 3.33GHz but was able to overclock my 661 to 3.96GHz. If you use the Intel G9650 CPU there will be an option for Turbo 100 for up to 100% performance increase.
