ASUS Z97 Gryphon Armor Edition (LGA 1150) Motherboard Review


The UEFI BIOS that the Z97 GRYPHON equips is fairly similar to those offered by the ASUS Z97-A and ASUS Z97I-PLUS. It uses the same base-UEFI design as all the Z97 channel series ASUS motherboards and as such it has the new EZ Tuning Wizard auto-overclocking feature and the new graphical fan tuning feature. The only difference between this BIOS and the UEFI of the other two aforementioned motherboards is that this one is skinned a little differently in-line with the TUF series theme and military colours. This is actually a really good thing because the current-gen ASUS UEFI is great. This UEFI demonstrates its usual flexibility towards both “basic” users and “advanced” users with a wide range of options that you can play with, or just leave on auto. Either way the choice is yours and that’s what is so important here.
