The BIOS has been completely redesigned from the ground up in this generation of boards. It is UEFI based and still carries the ROG colours, but that’s where the similarities between this and the last generation of boards stops. Many, many more functions have been added and can be found below. You can literally spend a few days tweaking settings here and messing about, till you are satisfied with the results.


This is a wonderful BIOS to work with and offers so much to overclockers. I have included a snap from each page of the BIOS so that you can get a sense of the settings available to you. BIOS version used was 0711 available from the ASUS support website. It was the latest at the time of testing.
