GIGABYTE' new UEFI maintains their traditional layout and settings are located in the same places they were before. What has changed is the addition of GUI based fan control, which is much more powerful than GIGABYTE's previous in-UEFI offerings. Their new fan control brings GIGABYTE up to speed with its competitors allowing users to set curves, choose reference temperatures, and even choose operating mode.
GIGABYTE also has quite good in-UEFI RGB LED control. While you will not be able to control individual zones, you do get good customization options, something that not all vendors offer inside the UEFI.
GIGABYTE's programs include BIOS Setup, Auto Green, Platform Power Management, @BIOS, 3D OSD, Ambient LED, Color Temperature (for removing blue light from your monitor), Cloud Station, USB Blocker, System Information Viewer (fan control), EasyTune, V-Tuner, Home Cloud, Smart Backup, Smart TimeLock, and Smart Keyboard.
For the Intel NIC, you get cFOS to control bandwidth and Killer has its own NIC suite. Audio control is through Realtek's application with a custom GIGABYTE skin.
