BIOS

To the delight of many, GIGABYTE has added in full GUI fan controls into their new UEFI. Users are now able to choose what temperature sensor each fan header will use for reference. Users are also able to choose the operating mode of certain headers, and manual control of headers can be done on a graph where users can pick different points.

 

The new GUI for fan control is a huge step up from GIGABYTE's previous fan control methods, putting their UEFI fan control in line with that of their competitors. In fact, their new fan GUI looks better than some competitor GUI fan control modules, and hopefully GIGABYTE will add this module to other motherboard models.

While all of the UEFI got a style overhaul, most of the menu structure remains the same. There are two new pages worth noting in the new UEFI. The first is an Easy Mode screen where users can easily find popular settings such as boot sequence and fan control. The second is an "Ambient LED" control module. The RGB LEDs are all synced together, and you can customize the color in multiple ways, and you can also customize the LED mode.
