BIOS on a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 board

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys and gals! I'm running through some boards for a SB build for my girl, and I think I've settled on a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3.

My question is - what does the BIOS look like? On my ASUS board, it's the UEFI - which is amazing - and I understand the BIOS on the Gigabyte is EFI - what would be the difference? Im used to the UEFI now, and would I see any drawbacks having to deal with Gigabytes BIOS?

Any info would be so helpful!

No mouse ability, it's the old blue screen with white/yellow/grey lettering. Navigate with arrow, function keys and Enter.

I just switched out from that board yesterday after running it for a month. Be aware that, unlike ASUS and others, you cannot run offset at the same time as LLC. Still can run LLC with manual voltage though, so ends up being not much of an issue, depending on what you're after. I LOVE Giga's dual bios, it's way faster getting back in than on my new ASUS, after a failed OC attempt.
