- We used the most current BIOS for testing. That being BIOS F5d released on 3/14/2017, which gives improved RAM compatibility.
Here is the first page the Bios opens to. From here you can navigate anywhere in the Bios. Here you are in advanced mode. However, is an option at the bottom of the page to enter easy mode.
This is what easy mode looks like in the bios of the X370 GAMING 5.
In the system setting, you can find of the bios version and the date it was released.
In the bio section, you can choose boot priorities.
In the Peripherals section, there are several things you can configure. Here is where you can set up just about anything you plug into the motherboard. USB, SATA and NVME configuration and RGB Fusion are a few of the things you can set up in this section.
The Chipset section of the BIOS is where you can view what hardware is plugged into the SATA ports.
In the power section, you can set the different power settings for the motherboard.
Once in the CPU frequency settings, you can set things such as the base clock and clock ratio as well as get into more advanced CPU frequency settings.
There is also setting to enable X.M.P. mode.
Also in the M.I.T section, you can manually adjust voltages.
With Smart Fan 5, you can set custom fan curves for each individual fan connected to the motherboard.
The Q-Flash section is where you can update the bios of the motherboard.
Once you’re done, either hit F10 or go to Save & Exit Setup to exit the Bios.
