BIOS Images and Information




GIGABYTE has a bit of a new BIOS design going on. The first time you enter it, you're greeted with a startup guide that lets you choose some basic settings along with what screen you want to be greeted with when you go into the BIOS.














We love the fact that GIGABYTE has this HD BIOS option that allows us to see an absolute ton of information. In the center of the screen, you have all of your options that revolve around overclocking.


As a border, you can see all of your CPU information on the left side at the top, with memory information along the bottom. The right side gives you some of the main system information. Across the top, you can see some information regarding voltage, fan speed, and CPU temperature.














If you feel like kicking it old school, you can hit the G2 button and go into Classic mode. Here you're greeted with that familiar UEFI BIOS layout that we first saw from GIGABYTE. The main overclocking options are under the M.I.T. section of the BIOS.


Moving through the rest of the BIOS, you can see all of the standard options you're used to. While normally we'd go straight to the Classic area for overclocking, the other option in HD is great to use. It's fast and fluid, and we've been doing most of our overclocking in this area since its introduction. GIGABYTE really made a smart move by going away from the clunky 3D BIOS option it had previously.
