Software & Lights
As far as motherboard companion software ASRock makes downloading apps very easy with their Live Update and App Shop. Through it you can download all of the drivers, software, and misc apps for your motherboard. This saves you so much time!
ASRocks’s main motherboard companion software is Phantom Gaming Tuning (A-Tuning previously). Here you can fully tune your system within Windows. On the main screen you can set your operation mode.
The next tab is OC Tweaker. Here you have sliders for all different types of settings that have to do with tuning your CPU.
Next is system info, which is basically a live hardware monitor showing speeds, temperatures, voltages, and more.
FAN-Tastic Tuning allows you to set your fans to certain fan curves and even test each fan to see what the best curve would be.
When it comes to lighting on the board you have RGB lighting on the rear I/O cover and around the chipset heatsink. You can control it with ASRock’s Polychrome Sync software or set it up in the BIOS.
