One of the most important things about a motherboard is the BIOS. A motherboard BIOS will allow you to change and tinker around and even overclock. Well on this ASUS motherboard they give you 7 different tabs. I will post the pictures below and then go into a little bit of detail. This first picture is of the main screen when you first get into the BIOS. As you can see its showing my 2 hard drives and my Blu-ray drive along with the time and date.
The Next Screen is the ASUS AI tweaker that you see in most of the ASUS motherboards. Now at the top of the BIOS screen you will see the Turbo Core and Normal CPU Frequency. At this current time they are stock so you will see the 3.6 GHz turbo and 3.2GHz stock. They also have the DRAM Frequency. Once I first started this up I noticed that the ram was at 1333MHz so I just had to do a quick flip and it was normal again.
Next we have the Advance tab with the CPU Configuration and also chipset and onboard devices along with USB Configuration settings.
Next is the Power tab, here are some basic features that most of us wouldn’t use or touch. The Boot tab is the next tab on the list and in here you can change the boot device priorities also security’s settings.
Now we have the tools section. In this tab you can update your bios with ASUS EZ Flash, or use express gate and be able to connect to the Internet in only a few seconds from press the power button, along with being able to save and use saved overclocking profiles. For the last area we have the exit where it houses the save and exit screen since you got to save what you just did in the BIOS so the computer knows what it s doing.
