EFI and Overclocking


As we've already mentioned, the latest BIOS should mean the Prime X370-Pro is game for some overclocking and able to reach 2,933MHz with most memory kits. We set our usual 1.425V Vcore and while it couldn't quite match the 4.05GHz of the Crosshair VI Hero, it managed to match other boards we've tested by getting to 4.025GHz across all eight cores, and that's with the memory at 2,933MHz, too. A higher frequency would probably be achievable by increasing the Vcore, but with 1.45V being AMD's recommended maximum, that's up to you.

The EFI is slightly different to the ROG Crosshair with features such as SSD Secure Erase and ROG PC Panel missing. However, you're able to set a custom CPU core ratio using FID and DID, plus there's the option to disable simultaneous multithreading, numerous voltage adjustments and loadline calibration, many of which aren't available on other boards.

The fan-control suite is up to Asus’ usual standards, although with few improvements over the last few years, Gigabyte has taken out a lead in terms of flexibility here now. However, you're still able to stop fans below certain temperatures and switch between PWM and DC modes, both of which are pretty useful.
