Asus includes CrashFree BIOS on their motherboards which allows a user to experiment with overclocking modifications and easily reset the BIOS in case of problems. Many overclocking modifications made in the BIOS can cause serious issues which prevent the computer from booting. Sometimes the BIOS gets corrupted during these experiments and needs to be reset. It is no longer necessary to open the computer case and change hardware jumpers or remove the battery. Simply enable the CrashFree BIOS recovery and boot to factory defaults.
