BIOS Settings - Hardware Device Settings / "CPU Soft Menu"

The newest rage in motherboard design is the so-called "jumperless" motherboard. While this name is an exaggeration--these boards do have jumpers, just fewer of them than a regular motherboard--the idea is sound: to move many of the low-level hardware selection functions from hardware jumpers to regular BIOS settings, accessed through a BIOS settings group sometimes called a "CPU soft menu". Abit has popularized this type of motherboard.

This section describes the settings that are found in this setup group on jumperless motherboards. Regular jumpered motherboards will of course not have a section of this sort in their BIOS setup.

Warning: Setting the values in this section incorrectly can possibly damage your processor or other hardware.
