Yes, that's expected. Officially, Gigabyte added it with F7 which was released on 4/23/15, though it may have been available in some of the beta BIOSes before that. The newest official BIOS for that board is F8, which can be downloaded here.

Thanks for the quick response. If I don't have a Haswell CPU to process the BIOS update with, what should I do? Can Qflash be done without a compatible CPU?

Unfortunately it looks like you'll have to pick up a Haswell or Devil's Canyon chip to upgrade the BIOS. Gigabyte has Q-Flash Plus on their X99 boards which allows you to update the BIOS without a CPU but it seems that this is not a feature on the Z97 boards frown.gif

I see, then. If there's no way around it, then I'll try to grab a cheap Pentium to do that with and hopefully be able to return it later. Also I need more Coollabortory Liquid Ultra Pro now (or is Thermal Grizzly better nowadays?). smile.gif

CLU is better for air/water cooling. Grizzly is better for subzero stuff thumb.gif

You might just grab yourself a G3258. They're all over the place for sale and they're a lot of fun too.

EK had them. I dont know if they still sell those. If not, your only option is to buy second hand I think.
P.s. waterblocks are (mostly) for aesthetics, right?

Yes, you should do a bios update on it first.

I did the BIOS update with a Pentium and I've almost got everything set up with my Broadwell-powered SOC Force!

What software is recommended for fan control on this motherboard? SIV doesn't seem very user-friendly if one wants to go beyond the Auto settings.

I'm using siv to control part of my fans and have no issue. Interested to know what you mean by user friendly?
To be fair all other fans are non-pwm with the exception of the stock ones that came with the nh-d15
