Default A few BIOS tweaks I need help on...

I'm almost finished with tweaking my BIOS... I have managed to get 1/10th of a point added on my Windows Experience score so far. Woohoo! Once it's finished, I'm going to do a complete Windows 7 reformat/reinstall and go from there.

Anyways, I've been able to find exact definitions and recommended settings for most of the stuff in the Alienware Aurora BIOS, but there are a few for which I could use some help. I'll basically use this format: (Name)--(Options)--(Current Setting). This is for a home computer, primarily used for gaming, but also used for some MS Office and Photoshop stuff and surfing the net.

AHCI CD/DVD Boot Time Out--0 to 35--35

USB Power in S5--Enable or Disable--Disabled

Intel R HT Technology--Enable or Disable--Enabled

Intel R Speedstep (TM) Technology--Enable or Disable--Enabled

Intel R State Technology--Enable or Disable--Enabled

XD Bit Capability--Enable or Disable--Enabled

Wait for "F1" if Error--No Error, All Errors, All But KB--All But KB

Finally, I'm assuming everything under Frequency/Voltage Control is for overclocking, correct? Is it a good idea to do this (if I do it, not sure yet) before or after the operating system reinstall? If before, let me know and I'll also post that stuff.

Thanks, everyone!!!
