BIOS Features:

As with every ASUS board I've used it has an AMI BIOS. ASUS always manages to pack their BIOS' full of features and the P7P55D-E Deluxe is no exception. The Main tab of the BIOS gives some basic information about your setup, the date and time and language. You can change the AHCI configuration for your SATA drives to set them in IDE or AHCI mode. The System Information menu show the BIOS version, the CPU speed, and the amount of memory installed.

The Ai Tweaker tab is where all of the action and goodies are. This where you can setup your overclocking options. You can change all of your frequencies, timings and voltages here. The amount of options is almost overwhelming at first. The control it gives is amazing though. If you're not the kind of tweaker who wants to go through all of these one by one to perfect your overclock, you can use some of the pre-set options to give you some basic overclocks. The board supports XMP profiles to make setting the ram speed a breeze.

The advanced tab shows all of the CPU settings you can change. It will let you change the CPU ratio, enable C1E, and Virtualization Technology and more. This where you also enable memory remapping if you have over 4GB of memory. The Power tab allows you to setup your ACPI options. This board is EUP ready which means when enabled it will meet the European Union's standards for power consumption. The Hardware Monitor section shows your system's current temperature and voltages.

The Boot tab allows you to set the boot priority of your devices as well as setting a password on boot.

The Tools tab has some cool features. The first being the ASUS O.C. Profile. This will let you save your overclock settings to a profile so you can come back to them later. I save my best stable overclock in there so I can easily switch back to it. AI NET 2 is a feature that helps you diagnose bad LAN cable connections from the BIOS. ASUS EZ Flash 2 is a great feature and makes flashing your BIOS extremely simple. Just select it and it will open the Utility and you can just specify the path to the BIOS file you want and select it. The board also supports Express Gate which is a mini operating system you can boot to if you just want to browse the web quickly or do other basic tasks. It doesn't have a built in ROM for this so it has to use a partition on your HDD or a flash drive. It should be noted that if you set your SATA setup to AHCI you can't use Express Gate on your hard drive. And the last feature of the Tools menu is the ID LED feature which lets you enable or disable some of the cosmetic LEDs on the motherboard and light up in blue.

Last but not least is the Exit tab which lets you exit the BIOS with or without saving your changes, discarding the changes you just made and loading the setup defaults. Overall the BIOS is very feature rich.
