BIOS

The Corsair ONE Pro's UEFI is very similar to that of MSI Z270 motherboards I have looked at. It has the same layout and operation modes. You even have access to overclocking features, something I didn't expect from a fully built system with warranty.

Everything is pre-configured in the UEFI, and you don't have an option to set XMP, but the memory is already set at 2400MHz. The motherboard is called the Z270I Corsair ONE. A single fan header controls the top exhaust fan, and you can see the preset slope that Corsair felt was good enough to balance thermals and noise.

When you first boot the machine, this is the desktop you see.

Corsair's LINK software incorporates many operating aspects and parameters of the unit; you can see temperatures of the motherboard, CPU, SSD, GPU, and GPU Cooler.

Configuring the LED is also simple; however, you have no option to change the color. Corsair wanted to keep with a consistent theme, so they decided not to incorporate RGB LEDs. Corsair ONE also has Corsair ONE Diagnostics, a utility that allows you to monitor the system and diagnose any potential faults.

The Corsair GAMING application allows you to control the different Corsair peripherals you might decide to use with the Corsair ONE Pro. They include a demo for the SCIMITAR gaming mouse.

MSI is the vendor of the motherboard, and the audio is built into the motherboard. MSI uses a Realtek audio solution, and you can customize it in the Realtek HD Audio Manager. If you want to update MSI software, MSI's Live Update 6 can automate the process.
