The first software offering that we are going to look at is the Smart Speed LAN program. This allows you to prioritize the packets that are incoming and outgoing into your computer by application or preset mode or profile. The gaming mode prioritizes your network for lower latency to ensure you have the quickest response times in your games. If you set it to stream mode, it optimizes your upload speed so that you’re able to easily upload your game stream to the world wide web. Browser mode optimizes your connection for download speed, to ensure you get the fastest downloads possible.
Next up we have the T-Overclocker application, which is Biostar’s Windows based overclocking application. While this software is capable of achieving an overclock on your PC’s hardware, I would definitely recommend you use your Bios settings instead of any overclocking software. Not to mention, the T-Overclocker seems to be a bit buggy, as I was getting some errors when trying to view my memory settings.
Biostar has bundled their Green Power Utility with the Z97WE, which allows you to control the amount of power delivered to your components. You’re able to set it between manual and auto control, to fine tune your performance.
There’s also a live Bios update program, which allows you to download the latest bios straight from the Biostar website and it then installs it for you. You can even backup your bios with the click of a mouse.
The final software we’re going to look at is the eHot-Line, which allows you to submit a bug report straight to Biostar. It’s a simple tool that allows you to input your email address as well as a description of your problem and it automatically sends the information straight to Biostar.
