I prefer to set my hardware in CMOS setup or jumpers on the MoBo & I buy MoBo's that allow
these settings. If I was stuck with a cheap MoBo I would use those kind of programs.
The one draw back is I still program in real DOS & a windows program would not run to speed up. I have been poking around in the hardware part since my first computer a 80286 @ 16 MHz
& I paided alot more to get one that OCed to 20 MHz (standard speed was 12 MHz) with the added feature of having 8 MB's of ram state of the art back then the newest games would fit in
ramdrive & I could shut down the HD's & only listen to one PS fan, quiet heaven. Then I got a 50
MHz 486 I could tweak with debug & saved permanently, got alot of extra speed this way this
MoBo I got a programers & system builders manual that gave me all kinds of options to change
thru I/O ports.
So I do not mind learning & playing around in the guts of my computers & the programs for changing MoBo's can make a good tester, but I would make the changes permanent, I like this stuff.
