The ASUS F1A75-M Pro motherboard uses the UEFI BIOS that we have come to love from ASUS. The main page of the UEFI BIOS is the ASUS EZ Mode. Here we can check the system temps, voltages, and fan speeds. The ASUS EZ Mode also allows us to change the boot priority between the different devices connected to the system.

The hardware monitor page within the ASUS F1A75-M Pro UEFI BIOS is quite possibly one of the most important pages, at least to me. If you have ever failed to mount a CPU cooler properly or forgotten to plug in the CPU fan (guilty), you know how important it is to check temperatures before you start the build. On the monitor page we can check the temperatures of the CPU, and motherboard. We can check fan speeds of the four fans, as well as checking the voltages of the CPU, 3.3V, 5V, and 12 Volt rails as detected by the ASUS F1A75-M Pro.
