    Default Gigabyte GA-P67-UD-B3 Bios F5 and Touchbios

    I thought I would try Touchbios for the heck of it. So I flashed my Bios to F5. Fine and good. So...When using Touchbios (why...I don't know) I don't see anywhere to set the time. It seems that it freezes the Bios time and I have to reenter the real Bios to fix it. Why have a Windows environment Bios than?? Am I missing something? Just curious if anyone has encountered this.

    Could be a bug? Try running it as admin,any Windows based oc software won't be as reliable/accurate as the BIOS itself imo,best to use purely as a monitoring tool

    You can set the time from windows no need for any BIOS utility.

    One advantage of touchbios is that it saves a reboot.

    No...a restart is still required with Touchbios. It does not make changes to the Bios settings while Windows is running. It is purely an Interface. Yes I agree....Basically a monitoring tool for checking Bios settings w/o a restart.

    That could have been done with EasyTune. What I meant is that when you do make a change in BIOS it save one restart, instead of rebooting enter BIOS and reboot again you need only one reboot.

    True that. Easy Tune 6 is all right...but nothing replaces a good old Award Bios.
