The main landing page shows basic system information.
Ai Tweaker page gives you access to nearly everything overclocking. Here we set our memory to XMP speeds and got a bit of a CPU boost as well.
As you can see, there is a LOT of options in here for fine tuning your system.
The advanced tab gives you access to everything else from shutting down CPU cores and Hyper-Threading to some of the less used settings like hardware prefetch, Chipset settings, and about anything else you can imagine.
The monitor page shows information about your system. Things such as voltages, temperatures, and fan/pump speeds are shown here. You can also adjust fan and pump speeds as you see fit.
The Boot page is fairly self-explanatory, Boot order and configuration are adjusted here if needed.
Tools are all found on this page. Bios updates, graphics information and ram information can be found here. Overclocking profiles can be saved and loaded here as well.
ASUS’s EX Tuning Wizard will ask you some basic questions about your system and then proceeded to overclock and tune the system within reasonable limits for that configuration. If tinkering with voltages, clocks, multipliers and the other myriad of settings isn’t your thing, but you still want to get the best performance you can get, you are quite literally a few mouse clicks away from a free performance upgrade here.
Last but certainly not least is EzMode. Pressing F7 will bring you to this single page that has everything you need unless you just really love to tinker with all the nuts and bolts behind the scenes.
