BIOS and Software

Some motherboards have a UEFI BIOS equipped, and some have the mouse GUI BIOS enabled as a software utility. The MSI GD65 G3 has both a UEFI BIOS and a utility version. The best part is that both work and look exactly the same.

It's all very usable well designed with everything pretty much where you'd expect it to be and certainly a big improvement upon the legacy style.

As well as the Click BIOS existing as a utility, there is a 'live' way of overclocking using the MSI Control Center. Being able to skip that troublesome Windows boot part of the equation should let you reach higher clockspeeds and nail down a stable overclock a lot quicker than the endless "into BIOS, reboot, test, into BIOS" routine we're all so familiar with.

Good to see the Gen3's are starting to come out now. The GD65-G3 seems a pretty decent board and just shows how overpriced the Sniper 2 is.

The GD65-G3 might not look as good but it doesn't look bad and performance wise, at half the price, it's not far off the Sniper 2 either nothing worth spending another £150 for anyway.

Also, I have probs with my Steelseries Xai in the BIOS of my P8P67 I have to use the keyboard, I think UEFI doesn't like some gaming miceQuote
