Intel DH57JG Mini-ITX Motherboard with Intel Core i5 660 CPU Review

The basic overview screen displays the BIOS version alongside details of the installed processor and memory.  The other pages allow us to set up various aspects of the motherboard.

Users who plan to overclock will be very dissapointed with Intel's provision.  Under the ‘performance' tab, we are able to set the Host Clock Frequency to overclock the processor.  But with no option to adjust the core voltage, there is very little headroom for overclocking.  And, there is also no CMOS reset option on the board – which we found out the hard way – so it can be troublesome to reset the system to stocks settings if an overclock goes wrong.  So we would recommend that users who want to overclock their system should choose a more appropriate motherboard.

There is, however, provision for configuring RAM profiles which lets us adjust ram voltages and timings.  Otherwise the BIOS is a standard affair as you can see from the screenshots below.
