UEFI

The UEFI for the AB350 Gaming 3 is surprisingly simple and to the point. It does have both keyboard and mouse navigation but the mouse functionality was a little spotty with my mouse and the layout an older traditional BIOS layout so keyboard navigation is suggested. This does mean that there is no easy mode, so users start right on the MIT overclocking page. The 350 chipset does still allow you to overclock though the functionality is limited by very few options. For example, for our testing, due to stability issues with the early samples, I was testing everything with the memory set to 2666 MHz but I could only change the timings or turn on XMP to set the memory to 2997 MHz. All of the pages also have a pop out over on the right when you mouse over it that shows your current CPU, Memory, and Voltage settings.

The system tab just shows our current BIOS revision and lets you set the BIOS language and time.

The BIOS tab should really be called the Boot tab. This is where you can get into your boot options and boot order. Really anything boot related at all. I’m only completely sure this being called BIOS is actually a typo in fact.

The Peripherals tab gets us into the USB and SATA settings. There aren’t too many options, but you can turn on legacy modes and get into the boards NVMe configuration here.

The Chipset tab has some of the things missing from the peripherals page. This is where the rest of the SATA settings are including a list of all of your connected SATA devices and what port they are in.

The Power tab is exactly that. You can change how the AB350 Gaming 3 reacts to power loss and various ways to wake the board remotely. Then the last tab that isn’t pictured is the Save and Exit tab and I think that one is self-explanatory.
