seriously tho... go buy you a USB stick... @bios has issues and should not be trusted even if you "think" its working.
^What he said. Much better results using the USB bios flashing from dos or within the bios itself if you have something like ASUS easyflash or whatever its called.


USB drives are so cheap now you can probably just walk out into the nearest parking lot and find one laying around. Ask the next homeless person you see if he can spare you a spare USB. Seriously, they are super cheap nowdays.

A bios flash must be done with the bios set at optimized defaults.

I did it with "Fail-Safe Defaults"

Which is even better than optimized (as long as you change stuff like IDE to ACHI).

Because the only way to get the bios to take the updated bios is through the @bios flashing utility in windows.

Using the bios flashing program you can't update from the first bios anyways.

Gigabyte has some problems right now, and the worst part of it is they have old school looking bios on 64 bit UEFI arch.

We should have the same look as ASUS boards - but for "stability" reasons gigabyte decided to use the old award looking bios.

I'm incredibility disappointed with Gigabyte on the P67 boards, its like they were caught by surprise, ASUS totally destroyed them at release. Worst part is my $190 board has less LLC options and other general control than the $140 ASUS board.

I have not had any problems with my Gigabyte UD4 board. Very easy to bench at 5.2ghz. I did a build with an Asus board "Pro" and my chip would only do 5.1Ghz in it.

UEFI is nice but it really does nothing for me though. I assumed the Sata fixed releases in April will have the UEFI bios.

Gigabyte boards are UEFI, they didn't upgrade the visuals.
