ASRock B550M Steel Legend Motherboard Review

BIOS/UEFI and Software

ASRock BIOS/UEFI is already well-known, and we were presenting it in many previous reviews, so I think I don’t have to explain everything. The BIOS/UEFI itself is easy to manage. Everything is clear, and some options have an additional description. Everything that could be dangerous for the hardware is also marked, so less advanced users are being warned.

Let’s take a look at BIOS/UEFI windows and available options.

 

Main – Advanced Mode

 

OC Tweaker

H/W Monitor

In the BIOS/UEFI, we can find everything required for monitoring and overclocking. There are also additional tabs with more advanced settings that enthusiasts and overclockers can use for additional performance gain. All other users can configure additional devices or functionality like RAID modes. There is simply everything you may need, and for most users, there is even too much.

 

Software

The B550M Steel Legend has a similar set of applications as previously reviewed ASRock motherboards. Depends on the application, there can be a bit different background as the motherboard is from a different series. ASRock delivers functional software in which we can manage monitoring and overclocking but also fan speed adjustment.

Below is a screenshot from Polychrome Sync software, which helps us to manage RGB lighting and adjust all modes.

Now it’s time on some tests, so we are moving to the next page.
