AXTU – The All-in-1 Tuning Software
ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility (AXTU) is an all-in-one software to fine-tune different features in an userfriendly interface, which includes Hardware Monitor, Fan Control, Overclocking, OC DNA and IES. In
Hardware Monitor, it shows the major readings of your system. In Fan Control, it shows the fan speed and
temperature for you to adjust. In Overclocking, you are allowed to overclock the GT frequency which helps
to boost up the graphics performance and some voltage settings for optimal system performance.
In OC DNA, you can save your OC settings as a profile and share with your friends. Your friends then can
load the OC profile to their own system to get the same OC settings. In IES (Intelligent Energy Saver), the
voltage regulator can reduce the number of output phases to improve efficiency when the CPU cores are
idle without sacrificing computing performance.
