Normally, I'd talk about the BIOS here by placing texts between pictures, but there's really far too much to this BIOS and too many pictures had to be taken for such an approach to be practical. ASUS packs so much functionality and so many available adjustments into this BIOS that it took me 39 screenshots to show what I have, and that is without showing each and every part, although I didn't miss much. All the usual ASUS ROG features are present: massive amounts of memory timing options (including a few not seen on other boards), lots of voltage options (most of which aren't needed expect for pushing to the upper limits in LN2), and a bunch of tools to make BIOS settings, updates, and everything else very easy. Monitoring of temperatures and voltages, fan controls, and even overclocking options for add-in VGAs have also been included. Take a look at what's offered here. I'll get specific about overclocking in a bit.
