    I should have included a winking smiley to indicate my comment was also tongue in cheek. Sorry.

    I believe the motherboard comes with a UEFI bios but I don't know if I have a choice between UEFI and Legacy. If I have UEFI on the motherboard I believe I need to install Windows 7 using the UEFI.
    Yes I have read a lot about the subject but still a little confused.
    If I do have a choice I don't know which is better for over clocking.
    Watching videos from Asus they use UEFI for over clocking and get good and sometimes great results.
    It will have UEFI but you don't need to install in UEFI mode, that's mostly for Win 8....I think. The BIOS will still have the slick look of the UEFI interface though. There should be no advantage to OC either.

    Jack, to confirm what Gary said, you will have the UEFI bios whichever way you decide to install. I use legacy install, UEFI is pretty much uncharted waters with most of us. Even those of us who have it. But, it seems that it is more of a file structure for the installation and the way windows boots than anything else. The options in bios will be the same either way you install. I agree with Gary that a UEFI installation has nothing to do with overclocking. What you are seeing is the GUI of BIOS, which is there legacy or UEFI. If it would help you, I am installed in Legacy mode and I will post some pictures of my bios if you would like me to.

    If I understand correctly. What ever bios comes with the board I will have a choice UEFI or Legacy. My understanding that UEFI is some sort of security for the bios.
    I think I will stick with Legacy in bios.
    When installing Windows 7 will I then see a option to choose between the two also. I was watching this.

    It's a mystery to me Jack, they allegedly have the option for using the UEFI GUI or legacy, but I can't find the "switch" so far.

    Here's some hopefully helpful info.

    Ay any rate I have been doing testing on a few boards of late all with UEFI BIOSes and I simply started the installer and went ahead as normal with no glitches or being asked which to use. BTW, My BIOS is nearly identical to the one in the ASUS video, some have more or different options depending mostly on your hardware, i.e. the CPU and RAM.

    Thanks for looking Gary.
    It's a pretty good Video above.

    Jack, I don't know much at all about Sandy/Ivy Bridge -E. But I built several Sandy/Ivy boards. I never had to make a selection of which to use. I format the disk in diskpart using the install disk, get to where to install and select that drive (should be only one connected at that point) then the install goes as it always has. Ivy-E has some different overclocking options/requirements than the regular Ivy, such as the boot strap he mentioned. I don't have that. But the install went as always.
