The ASUS Z97-PRO has a two-digit POST diagnostic display that shows, through a numeric code, which component is preventing the computer from turning on. In Figure 6, you can see a power button, and a “BIOS flashback” button, which allows you to easily update the BIOS. There is also a “TPU switch,” which improves system performance.

The “MemOK!” button, shown in Figure 7, allows you to test the compatibility of the memory modules that are installed. There is also a switch called “EZ_XMP,” which overclocks the memory modules, and a “CPU_OV” jumper, which allows higher voltage settings.
