Over the last two years, we’ve seen motherboard manufacturers polish up their bundled software and add many new features to further diversify their boards from other vendors. ABIT’s bundled temperature monitoring software is called ABIT EQ, and has a nice layout and tells you important temperatures, voltages, and fan speeds.

Using the AV8’s onboard µGuru chip, the bundled OC Guru software allows for comprehensive overclocking in Windows.

Over the last few years we’ve also seen motherboard companies make updating your BIOS much easier, as is the case with ABIT’s Flash Menu.
