Lenovo's Nerve Center is where most of the Y900's unique gaming features are located. The Turbo Boost menu can be used to active overclocks for the CPU and GPU, but you can alternatively use the Turbo button as well. Overclocking the system will result in a 10W increase in GPU power limits and a 4.1GHz overclock on the CPU.
The Nerve Center also provides the ability to control network priority, light shift, and sound enhancement. Sound Enhancement utilizes Dolby Audio software to improve surround sound.
The Light Shift menu allows you to change the color of different regions; WASD, Keyboard, NumPad, and the Speaker/TouchPad colors can be controlled independently of each other. You can also setup different lighting schemes such as breathing, heartbeat, smooth, wave, or always on.
The Magic Y Key program allows you to setup Macro key functions. There is also a tour program that walks you through all the unique features of the Ideapad Y900.
The Killer Network Manager can be used to enable the teaming of the WIFI and Wired LAN. It can also be used to control network packet prioritization, so you can allow games to take precedent over other network bandwidth.
You don't have to use Killer's Network Manager for network priority. Instead, you can use the simpler Lenovo Nerve Center. Lenovo's Solution Center is also included.
Lenovo Companion is used to provide easy to use configuration of control panel items, and it is included in the Ideapad Y900.
The Lenovo Ideapad Y900 has a very basic BIOS, and it only carries the bare minimum regarding configuration options. There are no BIOS overclocking options, and if you never change out the hardware, you will probably never have to enter the BIOS.
