The main screen is your typical landing page showing basic information about the system such as installed memory and your CPU.

The OC Tweaker section is where the rubber meets the road. It is broken up into 4 separate sections based on the CPU itself, your memory, voltages, and the CPU’s internal voltage regulator. You can also load a few factory preset profiles, as well as save and load 5 of your own creation.

The CPU section centers around clock multipliers, for core, cache and the system’s base clock as well as features that can affect overclocking like Turbo Boost and Speed Step.

The Memory section has a plethora of timings to tweak, as well as more basic such as speed and XMP settings.

The voltage section deals will most of the system voltages such as memory, PCH voltages, and even the FIVR Input voltage.

The Fully Integrated Voltage Regulator section deals with all of the CPU’s individual voltage sections.
