Just ugraded to U1h(UEFI BIOS) on my Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3. Everything seems to work fine.

Made a DSDT for H3000 HDMI/DisplayPort Audio, which I attach to this posting. Audio via HDMI seems to work perfectly, using MultiBeast's 4.6.1 'Patched AppleHDA' Kext.

Use on your own risk - I am not a DSDT expert and just painted by numbers, using the info on that forum. :think:

As I need a DSDT for HDMI Audio, will I benefit of the UEFI improvements (faster boot, better power manager...) if I upgrade my bios ?

You can still use a DSDT with UEFI, but you don't have to...
And yes, of course you'd benefit from all the other improvements that UEFI brings, as it has nothing to do with OS X as such.

After a lot of testing I found that the Beta versions are a little different with the way some settings are controlled. The 1UA seems to be unstable with certain selections such as PCI and Turbo Frequencies.

I still have problems with my sleep from time to time...... Shut down is also a bit unstable at some points, leaving power on. I can't seem to find the solution to the problem yet. I'm waiting to do a clean installation. I will report back with my findings......
