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 adjust the CPU frequency, ratio and
some voltages 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.
UEFI – The Revolutionary BIOS Interface
Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is a
revolutionary BIOS utility which offers tweakfriendly options in an advanced viewing interface.
Compared with traditional BIOS design, the latest
