ASRock's UEFI it's quite extensive and provides a large variety of options for tweaking. If you are a novice overclocker there are also many profiles in the UEFI for high speed CPU and memory overclocks.
A trick that another editor at TweakTown taught me is to go into the storage configuration and set each drive to SSD mode if it's an SSD, because by default the ports are set to HDD mode for compatibility. Changing the drive mode to SSD will improve SSD performance.
I found by manual measurement that LLC level 3 gives the least deviation from the set voltage. The BIOS was easy to work with and I didn't encounter any major issues that need to be reported.
ASRock's Rapid OC works on the X99 OC Formula and on the Fatal1ty X99 Professional. It allows for on-the-fly overclocking through the onboard buttons. ASRock also provides their Timing Configurator which neatly displays all the important DDR4 timings.
ASRock has consolidated a lot of its software into F-Stream (otherwise known as A-Tuning), which will let you set up functions like Good Night LED and Dehumidifier while allowing you to overclock the CPU in real-time. You can also choose operation modes such as performance or power saving.
Here is ASRock's XFast LAN, which is similar to CFOS, for the Intel port. ASRock also provides XSplit.
