After our initial review of the 9300-ITX WiFi’s BIOS, we could definitely see improvements to the overclocking features that were not available with the first version of this board. The ability to make incremental changes to the CPU, memory, and Northbridge voltages will help overclockers fine tune their processors and grab every megahertz of performance out of their CPUs.
