The only bundles software that came with the AL8 is Abit's exclusive uGuru utility.  The utility has a new user interface that looks great and is very easy to navigate.  Abit utility comes with a whole bunch of other utilities to make an enthusiast's life much easier to live.  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. because if the system becomes unstable under Windows, you're screwed. DOS is still my preferred method. Finally, the OC Guru is Abit's overclocking on the fly utility. You can overclock you're system without the repeated restart of your system.
