After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Bios Features

    The EVGA BIOS is a little different than some of the others we have used in the past.  The layout is familiar but the features and controls seem to be laid out in a more logical manner.  

    Below you will find some of the more interesting screens we found in the EVGA BIOS, One neat thing is how they are color coding the different voltage settings.  Standard white is a "safe" setting, green is a little more risky, and red is flat out dangerous.  Many of our photos show the flat out max setting along with the areas of color transition.  

    It should be noted that when we fired this board up all of the typical things we (as enthusiasts) normally disable have already been turned off.  The fancy POST splash screen was disabled.  The EIST was turned off.  Turbo mode was enabled.  In fact the only thing we enabled for our benchmarks was the XMP memory profile.
