Abit's software bundle is not known to provide numerous programs that you will never use.  Instead, Abit includes useful utilities that enthusiasts can use to monitor their system and keep their system up-to-date.  There is only one CD provided, and that's for the motherboard drivers and the Abit uGuru utility. The uGuru utility includes, Abit EQ, FlashMenu, BlackBox, and OC Guru. Abit EQ is Abit's hardware monitoring utility. It provides temperature readouts, voltage lines, and fan RPM speeds. The BlackBox utility is Abit's technical support feature. If you have something wrong with your system and can't figure it out, let BlackBox detect your hardware and send it in to Abit for support. Within 24 hours, Abit will send you a response. The FlashMenu is an in-Windows BIOS flash utility. I generally don't like to use Windows based flashing utilities. If the system becomes unstable under Windows, you're screwed. DOS is still my preferred method. Lastly, the OC Guru is Abit's overclocking on the fly utility.
