BIOS Images and Information

Heading into the BIOS, you can see that the overall design isn't really anything new. We've got a UEFI BIOS, as you'd expect, and the same black and red color scheme that is seen on the motherboard.

If you've done any overclocking on an ASRock board in recent years, you won't be too surprised with what's on offer. If you're wanting to bump up those clock speeds, you'll want to head into the OC Tweaker section of the BIOS, where we have everything and more required to get the job done.

We're going to be covering overclocking on the next page. But as we mentioned in our i7 5960X EE review, and we'll mention again on the next page. Due to time constraints and just being generally new with the platform, we're going to be using the "Load Optimized CPU OC Settings" that can be seen in the second image to do our overclocking today. We'll talk about this more on the next page, but looking above you can see where it is when we talk about it.

Going through the rest of the BIOS, you can see all the standard options. We've got the storage options, boot priority and the H/W Monitor section that gives us an overview of the operations in the key areas. Everything here is fairly self-explanatory, so we'll move onto the test system setup and overclocking to see how we go in that area on the next page.
