The Z270X-Gaming 9 uses the same UEFI BIOS that the Z270X-Gaming 7 uses, it's much like that of the refreshed Z170 and X99 motherboard from GIGABYTE. It offers GUI fan control options as well as basic RGB LED control.
I found an option named Port 80 Output Selection, which can be used to change the function and display of the Port 80h (POST Code) display. You have the ability to choose between normal POST Codes, CPU temperature, System Temperature, and VCore. You can turn the POST code into a digital multimeter. If you are not that experienced with the advanced mode of the UEFI, you do have the option to use a beginners mode with a fancy GUI.
GIGABYTE's APP Center is where most of GIGABYTE's software is located. Software applications include 3D OSD, @BIOS, AutoGreen, BIOS Setup, Color Temperature, USB Blocker, Cloud Station, EasyTune, Easy RAID, Fast Boot, Game Boost, GBT HW OC App, PlatformPowerManagment, RGB Fusion, SIV, Smart Backup, Smart TimeLock, Smart Keyboard, USB DAC-UP 2, VTuner.
Creative's Sound Blaster Pro Studio is included, but it's a little more in-depth than the Pro Studio on the Z270X-Gaming 7. Killer's Control Center is also present, and it's where you can enable Killer Double Shot X3 Pro.
