The GA-K8NXP-SLI's BIOS is an Award powered affair, and a comprehensive one at that. All of the basic options are in there, and there is plenty for the overclocker too, split between the (hidden by default) Advanced Chipset Features and MB Intelligent Tweaker menus.

Starting with Advanced Chipset Features, we find options here to control HT width and frequency, as well as having complete control over both memory clocks and timings. Everything you could possibly need is accessible to tune your RAM setup to suit your exact needs.

The MB Intelligent Tweaker screen contains another cornucopia of advanced settings, allowing every facet to be altered to your hearts desire. Everything is covered here - From CPU multiplier and frequency to control of CPU, core, HT and RAM voltages. The PCI Express clock can also be altered and thus effectively locked.

The BIOS provided allows a vast range of CPU frequencies to be selected, from the default 200MHz all the way up to 400MHz, in 1MHz increments. The only downside of the setup is that you need to scroll through to your desired speed, rather than simply typing it in, making it potentially time consuming to scroll all the way through to the option you require! The PCI Express clock is also very flexible, allowing speeds between 100 and 150MHz. The CPU multiplier can be changed to anything from 4x up to the 12x allowed by our Athlon64 4000+ chip. CPU voltage can be raised to 1.750V from the default 1.5, with core and HT voltages allowing for up to a +0.3V increase. RAM is allowed up to a 0.2V increase.

All in all, it would be hard to ask for a more comprehensive BIOS.
