As far as the BIOS is concerned, I have to admit that it’s been a while since I’ve been in the BIOS of an AORUS motherboard. By default, you land on a page with the basic information of your BIOS. In order to access all the settings, you will have to press the F2 key. The first tab available is Favorites which allows you to have direct access to the settings you modify most often, it is always very useful.
The Tweaker section, as its name suggests, will be full of options allowing you to set up your processor, your memory kit and also to manage the different voltages. First of all, you should not forget to activate your XMP or EXPO profile.
In this tab, you will find the different parameters of your memory kits and also those for your processor. Most of the parameters to adjust the voltages are also found in this section. Please note that this AORUS X670E Master does not have any memory profiles.
The Load-Line calibration will also be important for our overclocking tests but we’ll come back to this in detail. Good news too, as it is possible to desynchronize the CPU and PCIe frequency. So it will now be possible to push the frequency of your processor via the BCLK.
The card also has an LN2 mode if you feel like running it cold. Don’t forget that it is important to keep your BIOS up to date, especially when it comes to a new architecture, as there will be many patches in the coming weeks.
Finally, saving profiles is highly recommended when testing. It saves time.
