hi there again...

another bios question.

There's two options in CMOS to change the settings. But i don't know what the difference is between the two, they both seem to be the same thing to me. Does anyone know what the difference is?

here there are:

If you wish to maximmise performance of your system, set "Top Performance" as "Enabled"

the second one down the list is:

Load Optimised defualts
Selecting this field loads the factory defualts for BIOS and Chipset Features which the system automatically detects.

is it just me or do these two settings do the same things?

No they do not do the same jobs.

The optimized defaults are usually to get you out of trouble. If loose your bios password or add software or hardware that refuses to boot to windows. This can get you out of trouble, by either reseting jumper on m\b or taking out battery or using this setting in the bios.

Optimized or top settings will set the bios so all your hardware, if there, will run at peak performance, tweaks.
