... If you do and really liked the simplicity, even for those new to overclocking, then maybe just read a bit further.
First, to everyone from tek syndicate, I love the show, love the rant 30, everybody loves the NSA (also here in the UK, I guess... ha).
Now, my rant 30....
Asus ROG motherboard do NOT have the automatic CPU tuning feature as JJ explained (and successfully marketed) in your video - and in many, many other videos for that matter.
Warning, TLTR... Well, I was really intrigued by the nice n shiny Asus 4-Way Optimization. Especially for me, coming from an AMD FX-8350, Phenom II etc... My last Intel is a while ago (200 MMX lol). I recently bought a 4770K and an Asus ROG Maximus VI Formula. After I got that all set up, installed AI Suite III, hoping to get a quick idea of how good or bad my 4770K is.
Instead of TPU / "Extreme Tuning" on e.g. the Asus Z87 Pro, on a ROG motherboard, you will only find "CPU Level", giving you 4.2, 4.4, 4.6 to select. There is no benchmarking, no fine-tuning, nothing. The "CPU Level" just changes the multi in the UEFI, and that is pretty much it. I can manually overclock my 4770K to 4.6GHz, however Asus' ROG "CPU Level" lala feature managed to set settings that let me not even boot into Windows.
Worst part is, Asus says the following about the Asus ROG Maximus VI Formula on their website:
"Starting with the Turbo Processing Unit (TPU), 4-Way Optimization performs Auto Tuning, which automatically overclocks the CPU to within ~95% of its potential, a process that typically could take up to 2 days to manually overclock. Auto Tuning is even able to overclock 2 cores at a time, and can configured to prioritize either multiplier (default) or BLCK if desired."
I have not seen anything even close to "2 days" worth of tweaking by the software, judging on what has been changed in UEFI automatically, literally, it is more like "2 minutes". It takes me actual two minutes though to manually change my 4770K to boot though at 4.6Ghz (which AI Suite III won't manage) - just changing CPU Multi, CPU volts, CPU Input 1.9v - done.
In the Asus forum I just been told "sorry, your board doesn't have this feature". ???
Conclusion: Asus marketing is top - they get it sold. Awesome.
