    The following links provides verified GIGABYTE Beta BIOSes directly from the manufacturer. A list of boards, going all the way back to P35 and such, and lots of UEFIs for 6-series motherboards f you're interested in experimenting.

    These modified BIOSes are also available, but they are specifically not provided by the manufacturer. Experimental/latest firmware.

    I had been getting latest gigabyte beta bios updates from softpedia. They always had latest beta bios faster than anyone. This is a little more organized than the sort by date list on softpedia. :)

    It uses recent updated bios settings for:( in my case)

    2. Realtek LAN ROM 2.59
    3. JMicron ROM 1.07.28
    4. Marvell Bios Version 1.0.0.1033 or 1.0.0.1029 (depends Chip-Version)
    5. Marvell Firmware 2.2.0.1125 (depends Chip-Version)



    For Your board GA Z77X-UP5-TH
    the latest is F12j Mod, here: http://www.jzelectronic.de/jz2/Downloads/z77xup5thf12j-mod.exe

    Specs:
    Intel® PCI Accelerated SVGA BIOS 2158
    Intel® GOP Driver Ivy 3.0.1027

    Intel® RAID for SATA - v13.1.0.2030

    ME Firmware 8.1.51.1471

    GA-Z77X-UP5 TH - F12j Mod (Ivy CPU-Patch 19 und Sandy CPU-Patch 28)



    Besides: I always did my BIOS flashing wth QFlash within the Bios MENU and a USB stick !

    Yes - I have been using a modified bios on my Z77X-UD5H for quite some time and it is probably the most stable Bios I have used (F16 mod11).
