Equipped, BIOS Interface
Not your regular blue background with DOS fonts and formats. The Biostar BIOS Interface looks cooler than any other usual available. BIOSTAR has reskinned the UEFI interface, a portion of the well-being reporting gadgets have been re-masterminded while the fundamental menus have stayed in the same area as some time recently.
The Main segment tells us some data with respect to the current BIOS fabricate, the at present introduced RAM amount and running rate, however here we will be additionally ready to choose the interface dialect and change the framework date/time:
The advanced section gives us an overview of the settings available:
- ACPI Settings
- Smart Fan Control
- IT8625 Super IO Configuration
- Hardware Monitor
- CPU Configuration

Benchmarks and Advanced testing results
If you are not a hardcore Hardware enthusiast, this is not for you. Head over to the conclusive report of this product to get to know our opinion on this product in this price segment. But if you like to screw the nails yourself check out below the performances benchmarks and motherboard depth information from some of the bench-markers available.
Keeping in mind the name-tag of the segment, Biostar made the Racing B150GT5 a mainstream board for regular users and high-end usage which means, there is not much to tweak other than what’s already available from the manufacturer. If you are a high-end user with no intentions of tweaking or overclocking, this defines the product. For much to grab the attention and added feather to the cap, an extra LED strip is spared in the box which can be connected to the headers. The base clock however, differed while comparing it with Gaming Z170X which had values over 100Mhz of the CPU frequency. But as said, the difference in performance of the board is inconsequential.
Other than another board look, we could see a re-skin of the UEFI interface, and RACING B150GT5 does likewise accompany a RACING GT programming, which permits us to perform more conformists, incorporating work with the LED setup (Vivid LED DJ). So far we have seen that the LED setup from RACING GT application is somewhat risky in light of the fact that it doesn’t fill in as it ought to (blending between modes, does not spare settings, tossing a blunder at startup) furthermore it is 100% subject to the applications, implying that in the event that you don’t utilize the application, you won’t have the capacity to turn on the LEDs.
We have proposed a few arrangements like the incorporation of the LED setup inside UEFI, yet we were informed that with the present equipment setup it is unrealistic. We do expect an overhauled RACING GT application which will illuminate the “invalid pointer” blunder and will make sparing of profiles inside the application conceivable.
