Biostar use the all too familiar American Megatrends BIOS layout for their motherboards. This means for most, navigating through its menus will require very little thought. Naturally, no one here is interested in boot device or peripheral setup menus, so let's head straight for Biostar's OC Menu - T-Series.
Biostar have segregated overclocking parameters into various sub-menu's. While the root of the T-Series menu allows you to adjust the reference clock frequency (HTT), Multiplier settings (Northbridge, Hypertransport, CPU), Voltage settings (CPU, DRAM, IMC, SB, NB) and Memory Frequency settings have their own dedicated sections. This certainly makes the BIOS appear less cluttered and daunting for OC novices.
