So do i say UEFI or BIOS? Can i still call it BIOS? Is it technically still called a BIOS? 4 years ago, when i was taking my GCE 'A' Levels in Computing, we called it BIOS. I wonder if they would have to change it to UEFI in a few years time...

UEFI pertains more to the newer interface of the BIOS where a mouse can be used like the UI of a program...user friendliness and a nicer interface is the aim, but it's still a BIOS.

Technically, UEFI is UEFI and not BIOS. Crazydj's right that we should not call it BIOS anymore. UEFI is not mainly a "new interface of the BIOS". It is the new version of BIOS which provides some advantages over it.

Juan Jose at ASUS ("JJ") called it "a BIOS replacement". It's essentially the next step. So now we have the BIOS and the UEFI.

BIOS is Basic Input/Output System, and UEFI is Unified Extensible Firmware Interface.

Hello I am using asus p8z68 v pro and i7 2600k at stock.

Can someone help me with overclocking my cpu to 4.8 ghz i bought Noctua NH-D14 and i updated bios but i am so afraid of making a mistake. I would be so happy if anyone with same build can tell me what to change @ bios. I checked guides but still i am afraid of applying changes until i find a person with same build.

I hope someone is kind enough to assist me with this, thank you.
Yay New Pc ^^

Is it just me or are the UEFI these boards have more aesthetically appealing than the one the MIVE features? I'm having a hard time deciding between the P8Z68 Deluxe and the Maximus IV Extreme-Z. I'm really not a fan of EATX boards nor do I like where they placed the USB3 header on the MIVE,

What advantages does a MIVE have over the P8Z68D? I'd like to get a nice overclock with a 2600K with whichever board I choose.

Edit: Just noticed that the aesthetically appealing part of my rant is just the UEFI's EZ mode which both boards have.

If you want bigger e-peen go for ROG series board
for a good 2600k OC you can even get a Pro board and it'll do just fine.
It all comes down to, if you really need it, will you need all the special features and that sort of things.
