ASRock uses a slightly modified version of the American Megatrends AMIBIOS for their A330ION board. The top menu is split into Main, OC Tweaker, Advanced, H/W Monitor, Boot, Security and Exit. The Main menu is where the Time and Date are located along with the BIOS version, Processor Type, Speed, Microcode, cache size and memory information.

The Advanced Menu is where the CPU, Chipset, ACPI, SATA SuperIO, and USB configurations are set. The BIOS Update Utility ASRock Instant Flash is located here as well as Good Night LED. The CPU Configuration is where the various CPU Features are enabled including HyperThreading. SATA is where the RAID is set in the BIOS. Chipset is where the Primary Graphics Adapter is set.

OC Tweaker is where the tweaking and overclocking of the motherboard is done. The ASRock board has a Load Optimized CPU OC setting which allows you to choose a preset overclocking speed for your CPU. The Atom 330 has a default clock speed of 1.6GHz and the choices are from 1700-2100MHz with this board. DRAM frequency can be set from 400MHz DDR3 or 533MHz DDR3. You can change the VCORE Voltage, VCCM Voltage and Chipset Core voltage from a variety of settings.
