Featuring an advanced proprietary hardware and software design,
Intelligent Energy Saver is a revolutionary technology that delivers
unparalleled power savings. The voltage regulator can reduce the
number of output phases to improve efficiency when the CPU cores are
idle. In other words, it is able to provide exceptional power saving and

This motherboard supports ASRock AM2 Boost overclocking technology. If
you enable this function in the BIOS setup, the memory performance will
improve up to 12.5%, but the effect still depends on the AM2 CPU you
adopt. Enabling this function will overclock the chipset/CPU reference clock.
However, we can not guarantee the system stability for all CPU/DRAM
configurations. If your system is unstable after AM2 Boost function is enabled,
it may not be applicative to your system. You may choose to disable this
function for keeping the stability of your system.
