    I seriously hope we won't end up the same as H55M-UD2H, where the latest BIOS version is a beta.

    That's how they treated to many of us.
    Don't put your expectation on them too much. After all, their debug ability is super poor.
    I've reported to them many bugs. But they only admitted one of the bugs I've found which is 4pin CPU Fan not able to work!
    They even didn't admit the bug existed before I told them I use 4pin Fan because they only tested with 3pin ones.
    And see what they've replied to me: They told me they are not able to fix it!! Because it's AMI's problem. (Then how come I can use 4pin CPU Fan after trying to flash with another MB's Bios.)
    What the..... joke..

    Other bugs are also serious ones, such as: PCIE X1 not working, Fan speed becoming ultra fast sometimes (up to 25XXrpm, normal is 14XXrpm) and unable to install Windows 7/8 in UEFI mode sometimes, etc... But they didn't and won't fix them, because they said their Bios engineers found no such problems on it. Ha!

    Just don't buy their MB next time, then no problems.

    But their customer service has really good professional ethics. She always call me politely and tell me the same reports from their Bios engineers, which made me believe their Bios engineers won't upadte and are reluctant to fix the Bios anymore. That's what they left, good customer service I guess?!

    I don't really know what to make of all these problems, but I am starting to think about alternatives. I will see what sort of board will I receive after my RMA is processed, and decide after that. Maybe wait a month for a miraculous BIOS release. MAYBE. In the worst case I will sell the board for a fragment of its original price, and think Gigabyte can kiss my ass in future.

    Unfortunately as with many products and services, the competition is exactly the same.

    Z77 is still the up to date top class chipset, my UD5H is not even 6 months old - yet there isn't a single driver from 2013 in the downloads section and Bios is stuck in beta.
    They must treat their software engineers very badly in Taiwan for them doing such a poor job.

    QFT.

    I have found quirks, irks, itches and annoyances in boards by all manufacturers, regardless of Tier 1 status or not.

    I don't find GB to be any worse than the others in this respect, and with GB we have the advantage of this forum and Stasio's contributions... in my case that is what usually tips the scales towards their products.

    I was perfectly happy until now... I've been using Gigabyte boards for years, my first one was P35-something, and I basically always had pleasant experiences, and problems were never too severe, or they were fixed reasonably fast. Not so much with Z77 ones, unfortunately. Months is a bit too long for my taste. And honestly I don't give a damn there are new chipset based boards coming, you have to support existing products as well.

    Thumbs down Re: GIGABYTE Latest Beta BIOS

    Gigabyte boards would be great if BIOS wouldn't suck.

    No valid BIOS=BOARD sucks

    Wake up Gigabyte!

    Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC Z87 LGA1150 Final BIOS will probably release in 2015

    Sorry, I'm not to offense and bothering you.
    But I think what he said was right.
    I had been waiting for Gigabyte to release a valid UEFI BIOS more than a whole year since they said they'll make one for their P67 & Z68 MBs.
    During these days I'm glad that stasio modified other P67's UEFI Bios so I could flash it into my poor P67 MB.
    I even asked GGTS to proved an UEFI BIOS for my MB. But with the one GGTS gave me, I encountered more issues than the ones I've tried to flashed into my MB.
    I would said they do had ability to fix these bugs, but they just don't care this part of service which I can tell from their attitude.

    stasio and the customer service are good guys, but the problem is on their policy that stasio and customer service can't change it.

    I don't see they try to make their MB's Bios better. All they want is us to buy their newer products.

    No offense taken.
    I had already deleted my post and we cleared the air via PM.
    There has been a lot of criticism of Gigabyte's long delayed bios releases and numerous valid customer complaints about bios bugs in new bios releases.
    Your post is perfectly reasonable and states the facts and your experiences in an informative and constructive manner.

    It's too bad that motherboard manufacturer's still don't "get it" and don't yet understand how important it is to provide excellent tech support and fast responses to customer problems. Having the best made motherboard is no good if high quality bios updates are not provided in a timely manner.

    I would be absolutely ballistic if I had bought a P67 or Z68 motherboard based on the promises from Gigabyte marketing for bios updates for Ivy Bridge features and compatibility.
