BIOS

MSI's UEFI on the X99A Gaming Pro Carbon is very similar to that of its other motherboard products. It has been fully updated to support Broadwell-E CPUs and works quite well. I am a fan of the way MSI has laid out their settings, but there were some SATA power savings settings I couldn't find.

 

Fan control through a GUI is present, as are auto overclocking profiles similar to that from the OC Genie knob located on the motherboard. You can turn off the RGB LEDs through the UEFI, but color control is only provided through a Windows application.
