    How well do modern MBs reset their BIOSs?

    The last motherboard I bought, and still use, is an Abit IP-35 Pro, which has a handy CLR_CMOS switch on the back IO panel. Whenever I shop around for motherboards I always try to keep an eye out for similar features, but only a few boards have them (at reasonable prices, that is---notably...
