Hey PC Fam,
So I'm getting a little overwhelmed with figuring out what I'm seeing when it comes to BIOS EUFI programs. specifically for my specific motherboard.
I have a ASRock -X470 Taichi ATX AM4 Motherboard and a Ryzen 7 2700x Processor.
I have been watching a bit of videos on the question of overclocking. But, since I am a total novice with overclocking and building PCs in general, I am looking for a place to actually learn (for free) exactly what everything means in the BIOS menu. I would like to learn this to an intermediate level before I consider touching a single thing in the EUFI. There are a few tutorials on BIOS programs in general, but I am struggling to find a video that specifically goes into detail of the Specific ASRock EUFI software. The closest i have found comes from the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G96mk2mByQI
As I was watching this video, I came under the impression that you can get overclocking speeds, ASSUMING that you can efficiently keep the CPU cooled. So with the stock fan cooling your CPU you'll get around 3.7 MHz . But if you somehow are keeping your CPU super duper cold, you will essentially get overclocking speeds ( 4.1 MHz+) without touching any settings in the BIOS/EUFI.
1.) Am I understanding this correctly? . It would be very nice if I wouldn't have to really dive into some technical aspect that I'm not entirely comfortable with yet
2.) What are signs that my BIOS/EUFI system is up to date? how do I navigate exactly which drivers to install if it is out of date?
3.) https://www.asrock.com/MB/AMD/X470%20Taichi/index.asp#BIOS -This is where the drivers for this motherboard are at, and i have no idea what its trying to say or if i will need them. If I am reading these correctly, these only need to be updated if i am using a Raven CPU ? (Im assuming the Ryzen 7 2700x isnt a Raven CPU)
4.) Do you guys have a link that can give me very simplistic descriptions for what most of these important options are used for? I would assume that regardless of which BIOS EUFI you are using, that the specific options are more or less the same.
5.) Do Motherboards come with a manual that goes in detail about how their BIOS/EUFI programs work?
Thanks greatly for any help you guys may be able to give!
