After the motherboard is successfully installed, the next step is to pop in the included driver disc. Either you run the “Xpress Install” to install everything or you can pick individual items to install. I went ahead and clicked the “Xpress Install” to get everything I needed installed since I had no drivers installed yet.
The Gigabyte EP35-DS4 driver disc allows you to install Norton Internet Security, Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Gigabyte C.O.M. (Corporate Online Manager), Easy Tune 5 Pro, DMI Viewer, Face-Wizard, @BIOS, and System Information Utility. I don’t need most of it, but went ahead and installed the overclocking utility called Easy Tune 5 Pro just to see what the program has to offer.
The Easy Tune 5 Pro is a self-explanatory and simple utility. This overclocking program makes it easy to change your options and overclock your system. Be sure that you know what you’re doing before you alter any settings. The hardware monitor included in this program is great because it allows me to view my temperatures without having to get into the BIOS to look.
The rest of the disc has the driver CD information, as well as hardware information and a contact link.
This CD definitely had more than I need at the moment, which is really nice to see because you never know what you'll need down the road.
