ASUS AI Overclocking

ASUS AI Overclocking is an intelligent utility that helps you get the most out of your build by automatically profiling your CPU and cooling system to predict optimal voltage and frequency settings.

Accessible via the AI Suite software in Windows or directly through the UEFI, the intuitive AI Overclocking user interface enables users of all levels. A range of customizable settings are available for seasoned overclockers, and an auto-tuning option is available for beginners.


  • Designed by Experts

    At the heart of AI Overclocking is a proprietary algorithm developed by ROG R&D engineers who worked with world-renowned overclockers to create a tool for users of all levels.
  • Predictive Edge

    The algorithm analyzes your CPU and cooling system and, based on what it finds, predicts optimal settings. The software then uses these settings to automatically guide the clocking process, balancing frequency and voltage.
  • Real-time Adjustments

    The software monitors workload, system temperature, fan speed and power draw every minute, and makes real-time adjustments to ensure ongoing optimal performance.

    Load, save and reboot

    Go to BIOS by pressing the Delete key during system boot-up.
    Press F5 to load the UEFI defaults, then press F10 to save and reboot. Boot into operating system.

    Run a stress test

    A stress test assesses system performance in order to estimate system potential as well as voltage needs for overclocking. To run a test, choose from any of these benchmarks
    Blender / Prime95 / Aida64/ ROG real Bench
    Alternatively, you can run the test by using Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility.

    Apply AI OC

    Return to BIOS.
    Navigate to the Extreme Tweaker section and set CPU Core Ratio to AI Optimized.
    Hit F10 to save and reboot.
Click the AI Overclocking button and the system will automatically reboot and optimize overclocking settings
Turn on your PC and put on a load on the processor to get a baseline reading of your CPU, cooling system capabilities.

ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooler to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.

AI Overclocking Guide

The AI Overclocking Guide provides detailed information and instructions about how to tune your system manually. It can be accessed by hitting the F11 hotkey.

Core Group Loading

For high-core count processors like the Z490, AI Overclocking lists data according to core group. This gives you adaptive control based on the status of core groups (3 / 5 / 8 / all cores), and it provides target frequency and voltage estimations needed for manual tuning.

AI Overclocking in AI Suite

Onboard intelligence lets you automated overclocking with full, flexible control available via 5-Way Optimization within AI Suite (in Windows).
