I’ve build new PC - it’s based on Asus ROG STRIX Z590-E GAMING WIFI motherboard. Generally, I’m quite satisfied, but it have one irritating downside - after each UEFI BIOS upgrade, it’s silently resetting some of settings.

Let me note, what I want to have there:

  • Ai Tweaker (use my RAM capabilities)
    • AI Overcloack Tuner -> [XMP I]
    • DRAM Frequency -> [DDR4-3600MHz]
    • DRAM CAS# Latency -> [16]
    • DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay -> [19]
    • DRAM RAS# ACT Time -> [39]
    • DRAM Voltage -> [1.35000]
  • Advanced
    • Platform Misc Configuration (enable some power management)
      • PCI Express Native Power Management -> [Enabled]
      • Native ASPM -> [Auto]
    • APM Configuration
      • ErP Ready -> [Enable(S4+S5)]
    • CPU Configuration (virtualization optimisations)
      • Intel (VMX) Virtualization Technology -> [Enabled]
    • System Agent (SA) Configuration
      • VT-d -> [Enabled]
    • Trusted Computing (TPM v2 for Windows 11)
      • Security Device Support -> [Enabled]
    • Onboard Devices Configuration
      • USB Audio -> [Disabled] (don’t work well on Linux)
      • INTEL 2.5G LAN1 -> [Disabled] (I don’t use them)
      • INTEL 2.5G LAN2 -> [Disabled]
      • USB power delivery in Soft Off state (S5) -> [Disabled] (disable mouse lightning when shut down)
      • LED lightning (disable MB lightning when shut down)
        • When system is in sleep, hibernate or soft off states -> [Stealth Mode]
      • M.2_4 Configuration -> [PCIE]
      • PRIEX16_3 Bandwidth -> [X2 Mode] (Xonar is only x2)
      • CPU PCIE Configuration Mode -> [PCIEX16_1 + PCIEX16_2 + M.2_2] (I need that for 1st NVMe to work)
  • Boot
    • Boot Configuration
      • POST Delay Time -> [1 sec]
