    I don't like the color scheme as much as I like my Z77 UD3H scheme.

    How did that work, did the switches change the display on the screen, or was it totally flying blind?

    So did Gigabyte for quite a long time, they adamantly stuck to the classic looks while Asus and MSI started exploring UEFI.

    Eventually they developed some half-baked approach and received a lot of harsh criticism, so now they're fully UEFI to the point of their BIOS looking more or less the same as every other manufacturer (albeit using different colors :P).

    It's teh future!

    Write them an email and suggest they give you the choice of alternative UEFI skins, and suggest a classic blue/white theme for one of them.

    If BIOS had the same upstart time as UEFI, I'd love to keep going on with BIOS. Sadly, this won't be my choice nor will it be the case.

    yeah, the uefi on my RIVE is too fast, it often takes a few restarts and mad keyboard spam to get in, i get to see the splash screen for maybe 1/2 a second

    I have an option in my Sabertooth UEFI to show the *press delete NOW* screen for a certain period of time (I have it set to one second). It appeared out of nowhere when I last updated my UEFI version (and, as always, there was no mention of it in the patch-notes).

    Guh...it sounds like I need to get a new gpu, sounds like its ball bearing is going out. The 7070 does not look that bad, though I do see everyone with gtx 680...are amd drivers so bad?

    Also to get to my bios I basically mash my keyboard until the drivers come up.
