    BIOS Features

    Gigabyte went old school with the BIOS on the 990FX Gaming pulling in a very old layout from the original motherboard launch.  Honestly I have become very familiar with this particular layout, it is fast and everything is easy to find. 

     Below are some of the more interesting screens found in the GA-990FX-Gaming BIOS.(in no particular order)

    As with all BIOS menus it is a good idea to root around and identify all of the settings you are looking for and discover what their dependencies might be.

    One thing I would like to mention is that for users with Black Edition processors if you want to make multiplier adjustments you have to explicitly enable it in the BIOS.  There is a setting buried Advanced CPU menu to enable multiplier adjustments and it will have to be enabled else you’ll be left scratching your head as to why the Overclock keeps crashing.
