    Default GA-Z87X-UD3H: advantages of a mod bios?

    Hi!I want to ask what are the advantages if I flash modified bios?Is there any difference or advantages in updating drivers at bios level and official bios?I also have a problem with an hard drive: often it appears as "raw partition" and it doesn´t work; but sometime, when I reboot, it works again. Could this be a bios-drivers problem?Thanks.S.

    Yes, and since modded bios(es) are unofficial, you apply your own discretion when you use them. Modded ones have been most helpful to me when Gigabyte hasn't released an official bios for a board for a very long time, because they contain updated oproms. It's rather odd that my best bios experience have been with modified and beta release ones, never the official final Gigabyte release.

    Something that I always wondered about, does having the latest oprom/drivers in bios really gives an advantage to the system? Like maybe a performance improvement (instead of just compatibility)? Or if all is stable with the current bios then there is no reason to update?
