BIOS Guide - Settings

I found this guide while looking for information about BIOS voltage settings, hope this helps anyone, personally I found the guide very informative and useful.

That does help with some definitions Harry, although the guide is 3 years old and Award BIOS.
The link is wonky, I first get a big banner ad which, when closed, went to a page not found banner. Upon reopening I finally got to the guide.
Ahh, I see it also has some AMI listed too.

It works fine for me

I know the guide is a little dated, but it helped me with some the definitions, may have to do some searching if anyone is looking for settings specific to their BIOS.
