The H61iCafe does comes with ASRock’s Extreme Tuning Utility. While this utility is not as in-depth as others it does give you a lot of information and options to tweak your system. When you open it up you have the Hardware Monitor. Here you can see all of your clock speeds, fan speeds, temperatures and voltages. Moving down to fan control you can setup the target fan speeds you want and the target temperatures.
The Overclocking section allows you to change the CPU ratio as well as the GT Frequency. You can also change all of the voltages. You need to restart your system for settings to take place though. The OC DNA section give you some information on your motherboard, BIOS version and allows you to set 3 user profiles.
IES stands for Intelligent Energy Saver and you can turn it on and off. Another cool piece of software is the XFast USB. This detects when you have inserted a USB flash drive or hard drive and will allow you to put it in normal mode or turbo mode.
