ASRock Core 100-HT-BD – Software / BIOS

ASRock provide various software applications with the Core 100HT-BD. The first is Instant Boot which takes advantage of power profiles and standby modes to provide quick access to Windows in place of the standard power off/on and boot process. Next we have OC Tuner which allows us to tweak and monitor various aspects of the system from within Windows. This includes overclocking the CPU. Two audio applications are also available, the first is the audio control panel for the Via Envy HD chipset and then there is THX TruStudio Pro software, made by Creative, which allows us to enhance and control effects such as their Crystalizer technology or convert stereo source material to multi-channel.

Something which is also present, though doesn’t have an application, is AppCharger. This gives the Core100HT-BD the ability to charge devices such as iPods, even when the system is powered down.

ASRock base their BIOS on American Megatrends code and in a move that separates them from many mini-PC manufacturers they allow us full control of the system. Using the Core 100HT-BD BIOS is just the same as using one of their desktop boards.

The main configuration options appear in the OC Tweaker screen and allow us full control of the CPU, memory and GPU speeds. We can adjust each individually or pick from a choice of pre-set options provided by ASRock. Also included on this system is Instant Flash which allows us to update the BIOS quickly and easily from a USB stick.
