Too general question will not get any good answer. You need to play hard before asking.

I own an old model from around the end of 2013, but as huynhdat1989 mentioned, we will need more information.

Unless you're having a specific problem, there's not a whole ton of motherboard BIOS settings that you need to have tweaked in a certain way; many are mostly up to you.

Bought 2 of these in April 2016. Used them almost constantly ever since. Worked perfectly out of the box with noBIOS tweaks.

The only thing I did change was to have the system power on after a power failure, which comes in handy occasionally.

This board in my experience works out of the box without having to do any tweaking - it is designed for mining so everything set okay.  The only two things I do are to switch off the onboard audio and also if power failure, power on the machine.

There's no problems yet, but I just wanted to make sure that I got everything right!

So far I've disabled all audio.

I've set the Primary Graphics Adapter to "Onboard".

Render Standby is Disabled.

Onboard LAN is Disabled.

Restore on AC/Power Loss is "Power On".

Fast Boot and Boot from Onboard LAN is Disabled.

I was trying to disable the things that I wouldn't really need as far as mining is concerned. Did I overdo anything? Let me know please, thank you!

that is only the very start of the bios settings!
 there are hundreds of other things that need set to your system!
 like your ram speeds and settings and voltages...
just to mention one of the many!!!
