BIOS and Software

MSI use an Aptio Setup utility for their American Megatrends BIOS and it has a similar layout to most other motherboards. As noted earlier the option is available to overclock the system memory to 1333MHz, rather than stick to AMD’s 1066MHz specification. Temperature and voltage monitoring are also available as is M-Flash for quick and simple BIOS updates from a USB drive.

The E350IA-E45 supports System Monitor so that we can keep track of the CPU/GPU and memory use within Windows and in addition to this MSI supply Norton Internet Security with the board. Also, as this is an AMD platform, users should be able to take advantage of AMD software such as Fusion Media Explorer. FME is shown in the video above and is a tool which assists with managing our videos, pictures and music while taking advantage of AMDs CPU and GPU technology.
