I love the asrock's graphical bios! It updated to the latest firmware as soon as I plugged in a network cable, before even installing windows!!
It has some preset overclock profiles, but it's easy enough (and probably safer) to tweak the settings yourself.
For some reason, the bios HW monitor is saying my cpu temp is 50 degrees C. Every single other temp monitor tells me 30c, so I'm not sure what's causing this. However, after an initial freakout, I realized what was wrong and I'm not going to dock an egg. Mobo bios temps are notoriously inaccurate.
FYI, when overclocking a 4770k, you HAVE to enable turbo mode in bios, or your increased multiplier won't take.
