    BIOS settings won't make much difference

    the key is your script and database

    Hello :)

    I don't see any settings that you should change, however you may want to consider consulting with a qualified system administrator or posting on a forum that specializes more in BIOS optimizations. You will likely get more input from another resource because BIOS configuration is not often discussed on this forum.

    Thank you.
