Following is a list of important software which has been included on a CD with GA-x79-UD3.
@ BIOS is a windows utility by Gigabyte which allows users to update their bios to the latest versions. GA-x79-UD3 comes stock with F7 version of bios so we had to upgrade it to F8. The whole upgrade took just about 5 minutes and this couldn't be easier.
3D Power is another patent pending feature by Gigabyte and it offers Frequency, Voltage and Phase for the whole system. 3D Power is offered by 3 independent digital engines which is a great feature as you should expect only the best from them as far as the stability. By providing independent "phases" it is much better than having one that controls CPU and RAM. As we figured out later RAM itself has two engines, one for each side of the banks.
3D Power is a utility which could be ran directly from Windows and in which you can adjust a great number of settings such as CPU Phase Control and Turbo Voltage Response.
