The C7X99-OCE actually has a decent UEFI, especially compared to the C7Z97-OCE. The difference is like night and day. The BIOS seems to have had most bugs fixed; it no longer resets all settings after a crash in Windows, OC profiles are present, OC presets aren't crazy, I can actually save normal profiles, and mouse function has been improved.
Fan control has an additional profile as well; however, support could be expanded. With the C7X99-OCE, Supermicro can actually compete with other brands who have had years of UEFI experience. There are a ton of options that one would use for server management, but there is one option missing, and that is the ability to take a screenshot (which is only really useful for sharing settings and doing reviews).
There isn't much software other than Supermicro's server software; Intel's XTU is the only software present for overclocking.
