Yeah, I had nearly all Z77 Gigabyte boards at my house long before retail launch, and many will have changed a bit with BIOS updates, I am sure. I am keeping this one, the X79S-UP5, and the Z77N-WiFi as reference test boards. Nobody else will lend me some VGAs for testing, so I'll return the favor. With the latest WHQL AMD driver, I'll be re-benching all boards, well, those I have kept, so expect to see those results soon. Flashing to the latest BIOS is just part of the test routine, no matter what board or the testing occasion.
