First off the BIOS:
So if you saw shots of GIGABYTE’s X79 BIOS, this isn’t much different except for the fact that the board is a picture of a UD3H for all full-sized models and the mATX boards all look like a Z77MX-D3H. However two things have changed, first of all the BIOS is much more responsive, it is actually feasible now to use a mouse in the BIOS as it will move as you move and not 2 seconds after. Second of all the BIOS seems very stable, the features are abundant, and we have a lot of extra memory timings settings. There is a Stability level setting in the memory section, which is important for 2800mhz+ OCing, it doesn’t’ change any latency, rather a resistor setting. Fan control for all fans is there, you can pick whether you are using a 3-pin or 4-pin (voltage or PWM) mode, and you can set CPU SMART fan speed separate from that of the other system fans. It isn’t done individually per connector, which some still want, but this way is a bit easier. Two major improvements for people who don’t ever use 3D Mode, first of all if you exit out of advanced mode you will enter the BIOS again in advanced mode instead of 3D mode. Second, number lock is engaged at default, and the BIOS won’t freeze if you toggle it!! This new UEFI version is much better than X79s.
