“If anyone has ever made overclocking a hard task, it’s been DFI. Mostly designed for the advanced users, we tend to find ourselves looking at a BIOS with not only more options than you can poke a stick at, but more options than you can poke two sticks at!
Well, it seems like DFI have finally decided to look into this and offer a solution that’s going to cater to a wider audience. The thing about ABS, though, is there’s more than what meets the eye. DFI haven’t just created a process to make overclocking easier, but also a community to bring overclockers together and try and increase the awareness. Today what we’ll do is have a look at how you go about setting up the whole ABS thing and see what kind of performance difference the stock and overclocked results give us.”

If you like BIOSes that go on for miles with more options than you can reasonably keep straight and gleefully spend days tweaking them all, there is a good chance you are a fan of DFI’s motherboards. TweakTown takes a look at their new Auto Boost System, which is sort of a social network for overclockers. You can use the ABS to share your overclocks with the world, and use the settings that other tweakers have used. It is sorted out by processor, so you can ensure that the BIOS you download does apply to your system.
