ASUS X99-PRO Motherboard (Intel X99) Review

BIOS

 

ASUS's UEFI has two modes, an EZ Mode and an Advanced Mode. Q-Fan control is provided through a fancy GUI, one of the nicer ones I have seen. The Advanced Mode is what many have come to expect from ASUS's UEFI, and I used it for all the overclocking I did for this review. There are many settings for tweakers to mess around with, and if you need extra voltage ranges ASUS provides an OV jumper to unlock higher voltage ranges. Overall, ASUS's UEFi was simple enough to use, and didn't seem to have any major bugs worth reporting.

Software

ASUS has a software suite which installs all the software into one easy to use program called Dual Intelligent Processors 5. The TPU part of the program offers great in-Windows overclocking options.

Fan control is also done through Fan Expert 3, which has a very nice GUI. There is also power control for the digital PWM.

System power control can also be handled through the suite. On the right is an image of ASUS's customized Realtek software suite for the audio.
