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. :)

For Your board GA Z77X-UD5-TH
the latest is F12j Mod, here: http://www.jzelectronic.de/jz2/Downloads/z77xup5thf12j-mod.exe

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).

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 if you're interested in experimenting.
