Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H Review
We're starting off with the 3D BIOS (patent pending) which is a fabulous way to introduce people to tweaking their BIOS. The days when pressing delete upon booting was enough to require a lie down in a darkened room have long gone and modern overclocking is, to a certain degree, almost bulletproof. As long as you don't guess that 2v will be alright to put through your CPU then you can't go wrong, but even allowing for this we know that many people get a cold sweat on at the thought of tweaking their system. Thanks to the Gigabyte 3D BIOS it's actually easy to make minor adjustments.
Dispensing with the 3D side of things and moving to advanced it's just as easy to make major ones too. Yes we work late on Fridays so that you don't have to. Have a beer for me will you lads.
As always there are lots of options for turning off the bits you don't use, saving a tiny amount of performance and driver footprint if you're not one with an IR transmitter or Firewire device.
You can set your power options easily enough, as well as keep an eye on your current hardware settings.
Let's move on to overclocking.
