The main page is your initial landing spot in the UEFI BIOS and gives a quick rundown of the system.
The Extreme Tweaker area is where most will spend their time. Turning on ASUS’s D.O.C.P will crank your ram up to its fastest factory overclocked settings, often called XMP in general even though that is an Intel-specific acronym.
Pretty much anything and everything related to system performance tuning are found in here.
In the overclocking presets sub-category, a single profile is already saved to go directly to 4.0GHz.
Under the advanced tab, less often used but still, important settings can be found.
The monitor tab is pretty self-explanatory just looking, all of your voltages, fan speeds, and temperatures are shown in here.
Towards the bottom is ASUS’s Q-fan control, which can also be called up at any time by pressing F6.
The Boot tab is another one that is pretty straightforward. We did have to visit here and change our boot order to the SSD as we have the windows 10 installation media on a flash drive connected and it really seemed to want to install windows again.
The Tools tab is full of handy things, like our first stop to update the BIOS.
Several overclocking profiles can be stored in here.
The SPD Information can be handy getting your ram set up to its maximum potential.
We did find a bit of an oddity here, we actually had a 2nd GPU installed in PCIEX16_3 but it's not showing up here at boot, however, it does show in windows and operates just fine.
And last but not least, EZ Mode. Hitting F7 will bring you here which gives a single page setup of all important settings and statuses to get you going in a hurry.
