New UEFI DualBIOS, call dashboard mode.
Resolution is 1920 X 1080. Top column is voltage, fan speed and temperature.
Left side is CPU and DRAM related information. Right side is system status, showing other voltage and fan status.
In picture, it?s X02 version BIOS. You almost can see all hardware status and parameters in this page.
There are 7 languages for selecting. Right side is calendar.
CPU Voltage Page
You can set 9 CPU related voltage parameters. It offers more options for enthusiasts.
When I use air cooling, I only set CPU Vcore to 1.232V.
CPU frequency set at 125MHz and enable DDR3 XMP mode. Multiplier set at 24.00.
You can reach DDR3 3000. BTW, the DRAM voltage is 1.65V.
If you don?t get used to the new interface, you can switch back to the previous one.
Besides higher resolution, new UEFI DualBIOS also improves the convenience.
You can set up CPU frequency and voltage at first page, even DRAM clock and voltage.
For most OC setup, you can finish at one page to save time.
However, it still takes time to get used to the new interface for new users.
The above reference setting is i5-4670K OC 4.5GHz bundling withCORSAIR DDR 2800 OC 3000.
