Over bij Tweak3D hebben ze een PC Tweaking artikel online geplant. Nu staat alleen het eerste deel er, de overige 3 gedeeltes volgen pas later. Echt veel nuttige info staat er in deel 1 alleen niet, hier heb je wat over BIOS tweaking:
Speeding up boot time is one of the easiest tweaks that can be done in the BIOS. It's a good idea to make note of any settings before you change them, though, so that if you run into problems, you can change them back. If all else fails, most CMOS programs have a "restore defaults" option.
Begin by finding the QuickBoot setting in the CMOS setup program (sometimes it's called QuickPOST or Quick Power-on Self Test). Enabling this setting should speed up boot times up to a minute on some older systems. Also, disable Boot up Disk to shave off a few seconds.
Some other tweaks that can be performed within the BIOS will change the overall speed of the computer. If the BIOS has a Turbo frequency setting, enabling it should give the system a performance boost of up to 5%. Also, any setting that refers to the computers L1 (internal) or L2 (external) cache should be enabled. It is also recommended to enable Video BIOS and System BIOS shadowing. Shadowing refers to copying BIOS information from the slower BIOS chip to faster system RAM. If the computer's BIOS has the option, caching the Video RAM should also give a performance increase. Make sure to read the manual that was included with your video card because this can cause problems with certain systems.
