The Gladiator Bios section is the most interesting and probably the area of the bios where most users will spend a lot of time trying to gain that much wanted maximum overclock. The first pane in this section allows you to adjust the CPU and PCI Clock’s as well as changing the ratio between memory and CPU. All clock values can be increased or decreased in 1 MHz values. When a new CPU clock value is entered, the overall overclocked speed is calculated – saving you from your delirious maths skills or whipping out your age-old calculator. This is quite a good feature, and we also saw it on the MSI P45 Platinum.
