1.Clear cmos button at the back of the mobo
, not all use their mobos at bench rigs, i cant really open up my case door at 2am in the morning.
2. Accurate vcore reading (CPU-Z) without need to use the dreadful Easytune.
3. Totally fixed reboot loops and BIOS issues (not that i don't trust you but its different when like 1000 users got their boards in hands, instead of one who do everything perfect regarding proper setup, need masses global experience.
Lets hope Gigabyte will totally impress me this round
2 is out of giga's hands, i have a cpu-z version that reads correct vcore, ill share it.
3, they are fixed, they were fixed with X79 and are fixed now, just i have a lot more than 1 board this time, so don't worry, i will test all the boards with more than 1 CPU and memory, as now i just don't just review but also beta test them. The issue was them trying to not use UEFI and then interactions with the ME and Dual BIOS. However it was totally resolved with the G1 Sniper 2 for instance, and then the X79 boards didn't have the boot loop issue. In regards to that these boards are much better than X79, basically the problems Z68 had, X79 took care of, but made more probelms, Z77 takes care of both problems from both chipsets.
but yea I will make videos and such, so just keep your eyes peeled.
