The BIOS on the X99-UD4, like the other GBT X99 motherboards, features three different operating modes. The first is an easy to use GUI that presents tiles, however, the second is an overclocking only menu in orange and black to compliment the first one. The third mode is the one to use, it is gray and black and has all the features together. When you boot up and are in the UEFI, press F2 to change between the BIOS modes.
All together, the BIOS was pretty stable and the settings work like they should, and overclocking was simple as well. There was a small issue with the board refusing to boot when certain USB thumb drives were plugged in during boot, but most USB sticks I tried didn't cause this issue.
The X99-UD4 comes with the full software package which all GIGABYTE X99 motherboards feature. This includes EasyTune and System Information Viewer as shown above. These are the go to for those who want a nice GUI and guidance with overclocking.
GIGABYTE also provides Fast Boot, Smart TimeLock, Smart Recovery 2, Ambient LED, and @BIOS with the X99-UD4. The Ambient LED program is neat, in that you can control the LEDs on the board, and even have them pulse to music.
The X99-UD4 has V-Tuner which can overclock your GPU and the APP center which contains all the applications and Live Update which can update drivers and application with one click. GIGABYTE Tweak Launcher also works on the X99-UD4 and will allow you to overclock the CPU and memory on-the-fly.
