BIOS Setup

EVGA nForce 750i SLI FTW mainboard uses BIOS based on Phoenix-Award code. It is very similar to the BIOS we discussed in our ZOTAC nForce 790i-Supreme mainboard review. Only this BIOS has fewer features and is not as convenient at times.

First we have to check out Advanced BIOS Features section to check the processor technologies and the number of active CPU cores in the CPU Features sub-section.

Then there is a list of sections with very familiar names and functionality, which we will not dwell on here. After that we arrive to the PC Health Status page:

Pretty good functions. We can control two temperatures, a set of standard voltages including processor Vcore, FSB voltage and memory voltage, rotation speed of five fans out of six that can be connected to the board. You need to switch to Dynamic Fan Control page to be able to control fan rotation speeds.

Only three fans can be controlled automatically, and only two can have their rotation speed adjusted depending on the temperature. However, you can set fixed rotation speed for all of them if you like. Unfortunately, the fan of the processor cooler should have a four-pin connector, otherwise you will not be able to adjust its rotation speed.

So, little by little we got to Frequency/Voltage Control section. Here you can change processor clock frequency multiplier, frequency of the HyperTrasnport bus between the chipset North and South Bridges, save or load a limited set of parameters for CPU, memory or voltage settings.
