Default Intel BIOS Settings...?

I bought an Intel mobo... DG965RY. It came with a great graphical poster, but no manual. So, there are a few bios settings that I need some help identifying exactly what they do. Am I posting this in the correct place? Any help?

I'll list the menu choice first, then the setting, then I'll list the available options for that setting - where the one bolded is the one that was selected by default.

Drive Configuration
  • Legacy
  • Native
Configure SATA as
  • IDE
  • AHCI

Fan Control
Processor Zone Response
  • Agressive
  • Normal
  • Slow
Processor Zone Dampening
  • High
  • Normal
Automatic Fan Detection
  • Next Boot
  • Disable
  • Always

Chipset Configuration
PCI Latency Timer
  • 32
  • 64
  • 96
  • 128
  • 160
  • 192
  • 224
  • 248

If the bold ones are how they are set, then that is what you want.

Well I'd like to know what they mean. Especially automatic fan detection - and why it's disabled. The default values aren't always the best.

It probably just has to do with system fan speeds or something. If it runs who cares
