    Make sure you read over the BIOS options in the User's manual. You will find most or all of the answers to your questions there and its easy to understand. I always use the following.

    (Power Management Setup)
    ACPI Suspend Type: [S1 (POS)]
    HPET Support: [Enabled]
    HPET Mode: [64 bit]

    (Advanced Features)
    CPU Enhanced Halt (CIE): [Disabled]
    CPU EIST (Speed Step) Function: [Disabled]

    (Intergrated Peripherals)
    SATA RAID/AHCI Mode : [AHCI]
    SATA Port 0-3 Native Mode: [Enabled]
    USB Keyboard Support: [Enabled]
    USB Mouse Support: [Enabled]
    Azalia Codec [Disable] You have an addin card.
    I also disable the Serial and parallel port because I never use them. USB rocks!

    (PC Health Status)
    You may want to change the Smart Fan Control method and mode.
    Read your User's Manual.

    (M.I.T.) Press Ctrl+F1 once on the main screen to get all of the options.
    C.I.A.2: [Disable]
    Performance Enhanced: [Standard] (Turbo is the Default).
    PCIEx Frequency: [100mhz]
    Manually set the memory timings

    thank you for the quick reply.
    LSD would these settings be o.k. to use with the new GA-EP45-UD3P motherboard?, seems like a good one.
