BIOS

The X99P-SLI's BIOS has two distinct modes in the F2 version I have used. You can upgrade to the F20 series BIOS, which support the next generation of CPUs, but you will not be able to easily flash back to the F2 version if you face problems. If you are going to upgrade to the next generation of CPUs, you must flash to BIOS F20.

 

The two operating modes are a bit redundant. I would stick with the black and gray mode over the orange modes since the black and gray offers more options. Fan control is similar to other GIGABYTE motherboards; there are basic profiles such as silent and full speed, as well as manual control which allows you to set a linear PWM slope.
