This board has just about every BIOS option you could ask for, with plenty of extras. One thing I love about this board is how incredibly fast and easy BIOS flashing is. I had been spoiled by Windows-based BIOS flashing utilities (which MSI includes as well) but this takes the convenience a step further. Here's a video I made of the entire flashing process.
