SuperO Booster

SuperO Booster is their Windows-based motherboard control software. You can overclock, set up fans, update your UEFI firmware, and it's the only place where you will find the ability to change the motherboard RGB LED effect. The fan control menu is a nice touch, as it provides a GUI, which the UEFI doesn't. You have all the same options as in the UEFI.

Under the CPU tab, you will find basic overclocking settings for the CPU. If you want to change the value for all cores at once, change it for the bottommost core (core 8 here), and it will shift the rest. You can also change the VCore in the CPU menu.

The first tab you will be greeted with when you enter the software is the "Profile" tab, and there you can set what general mode you want the CPU to be in, and there is even an "Auto Tuning" mode.

The "Luminous" tab offers the ability to change the RGB LED mode of the RGBs on the rear of the motherboard and those that might be connected to the RGB header on the motherboard.

Under the "Voltage" tab we find all the major voltages one might need to alter to overclock the CPU and memory. We can also find real-time readings of the current settings. Load Line Calibration can also be found here, and you get up to six levels.

Under the "Memory" tab we find our timings as well as the ability to set our memory profiles or manually tune the frequency. The nice part here is that we can see exactly what certain timings under XMP are, so you can choose XMP and then switch to custom to tighten timings.

That pretty much wraps up everything on how to build a mini-ITX Supermicro-based system and configure it.
