Spread Spectrum W hen the motherboards clock generator pulses, the extreme values (spikes) of the pulses create EMI (Electromagnetic Interference). The Spread Spectrum function reduces the EMI generated by modulating the pulses so that the spikes of the pulses are reduced to flatter curves. If you do not have any EMI problem, leave the setting at Disabled for optimal system stability and performance. But if you are plagued by EMI, set to Enabled for EMI reduction. Remember to disable Spread Spectrum if you are overclocking because even a slight jitter can introduce a temporary boost in clock speed which may just cause your overclocked processor to lock up.
1. If you do not have any EMI problem, leave the setting at [Disabled] for optimal system stability and performance. But if you are plagued by EMI, select the value of Spread Spectrum for EMI reduction. 2. The greater the Spread Spectrum value is, the greater the EMI is reduced, and the system will become less stable. For the most suitable Spread Spectrum value, please consult your local EMI regulation. 3. Remember to disable Spread Spectrum if you are overclocking because even a slight jitter can introduce a temporary boost in clock speed which may just cause your overclocked processor to lock up.

Setting Up the NVRAID BIOS
Be sure to enable the RAID mode for SATA devices in BIOS before configuring the NVRAID BIOS. After that press F10 to save the configuration and exit. The PC will reboot right away. Then enter the RAID BIOS Setup by pressing F10 when prompted, and follow the procedures described below to set up the NVRAID BIOS. NVRAID BIOS setup lets you choose the RAID array type and which hard drives you want to make part of the array. Entering the RAID BIOS Setup 1. After rebooting your PC, wait until you see the RAID software prompting you to press F10. The RAID prompt appears as part of the system POST and boot process prior to loading the OS. 2. Press F10, and the NVIDIA RAID Utility --- Define a New Array window will appear. The default RAID M ode is set to Mirroring and Striping Block is set to Optimal.
JMicron JMB363 offers RAID level 0 (Striping), RAID level 1 (Mirroring and Duplexing), RAID level 10 (A Stripe of Mirrors) and JBOD (Concatenate). RAID 0 breaks the data into blocks which are written to separate hard drives. Spreading the hard drive I/O load across independent channels greatly improves I/ O performance. RAID 1 provides data redundancy by mirroring data between the hard drives and provides enhanced read performance. RAID 10 Not one of the original RAID levels, multiple RAID 1 mirrors are created, and a RAID 0 stripe is created over these. JBOD provides a method for combining drives of different sizes into one large disk.
The least number of hard drives for RAID 0, RAID 1 or JBOD mode is 2. The least number of hard drives for RAID 10 mode is 4. All the information/ volumes/ pictures listed in your system might differ from the illustrations in this appendix.
JMicron RAID BIOS Utility
Be sure to set RAID mode for the JMicron 36x ATA Controller in BIOS before configuring the JMicron BIOS utility. After that, save the configuration and exit. During boot up (POST), press CTRL+J to enter the JMicorn BIOS RAID utility. The RAID Utility menu screen will be displayed. A brief description of each section is presented below.
M ain M enu Cerate RAID Disk Drive - Create a new legacy RAID set. Delete RAID Disk Drive - Delete a legacy RAID set. Revert HDD to Non-RAID - Revert an existed-RAID HDD to non-RAID. Solve Mirror Conflict - Sovle a mirror conflict. Rebuild Mirror Drive - Rebuild data, when RAID 1 or RAID 10 data mirroring is lost. Save And Exit Setup - Save all settings and exit the BIOS utility. Exit W ithout Saving - Exit the BIOS utiltiy without any saving. Hard Disk Driver List The menu shows the model number and capacities of the drives physically attached to the SATAII & PATA ports. RAID Disk Driver List The menu shows the current configuration of RAID set.
Creating RAID set
1. Select Create RAID Disk Drive. Then press <Enter>.
2. Then in the Name field, specify a RAID set name and then press the <Enter> to go to the next field.
3. Choose a 0-Striped, a 1-Mirror, or a JBOD-Concatenate combination set and then press <Enter> to go to the next step.

DOT (Dynamic OverClocking)
Dynamic Overclocking Technology is an automatic overclocking function, included in the MSITM s newly developed Dual CoreCenter Technology. It is designed to detect the loading of CPU/ GPU while running programs, and to over-clock automatically. When the motherboard detects that the loading of CPU is exceed the default threshold for a time, it will speed up the CPU and fan automatically to make the system run smoother and faster. W hen the graphics card detects that the loading of GPU is exceed the default threshold for a time, it will speed up the GPU, memory, fan and voltage automatically to make the system run smoother and faster. W hen the CPU/ GPU is temporarily suspending or staying in low loading balance, it will restore the default settings instead. Usually the Dynamic Overclocking Technology will be powered only when users' PC runs huge amount of data, like 3D games or video process, and the motherboard/ graphicd card need to be boosted up to enhance the overall performance. There will be several selections when you click the DOT rate button (include increase rate and decrease rate buttons), to select the DOT level, then you have to click the DOT button to apply the DOT function.

Even though the Dynamic Overclocking Technology is more stable than manual overclocking, basically, it is still risky. We suggest user to make sure that your CPU can afford to overclock regularly first. If you find the PC appears to be unstable or reboot incidentally, it's better to lower the level of overclocking options. By the way, if you need to conduct overclocking manually, please do not to apply the DOT function.
