GIGABYTE starts to use UEFI interface since X79.
The main setup page has 2 interfaces. This part is different with the others.
First, we look at the 3D BIOS. The GUI design is based on product outlook.

M.I.T. Tuning Page. You can see the real time hardware status.

LGA 2011 CPU frequency is much higher than LGA 1155.
Depending on CPU quality, like the picture, I adjust CPU from 100MHz to 125MHz.

Memory Setup Page, you can enable XMP here.
As rising CPU clock, DDR3 will be sync with it. I set memory as 1600.

Advanced DDR3 parameters - CL9 10-10-27 1T

Voltage Page
According to CPU quality and cooler, I add 0.460V.
CPU Vtt is 1.1000V. If you would like to OC CPU and memory more, you need to add this voltage.

DDR3 Voltage is 1.600V.

PC Health Status

The setup above is OC Core i7-3820 to 4.75G and DDR3 to 2000.
If you would like to OC higher, you have to rise the CPU Vtt. The range is 1.100 ~ 1.200V.
If you only use multiplier to OC i7-3820, you can achieve 4.3GHz only by ratio X43.
It doesnít support unlock features as 3930K or 3960X.

System Configuration
CPU: Intel Core i7-3820
VGA: msi N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II
HD: Intel 520 Series 120GB
Cooler: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100
OS: Windows7 Ultimate 64bit

Cooler is CORSAIR H100 Liquid Cooling System
Hydro Series has H60, H80 and H100.
Below is H100 packing. Itís 5-year warranty. The packing is bigger than H80.
It lists all compatible CPU socket. It also supports latest LGA 2011 CPU.
