Setting up the software that comes with the motherboard is as easy as inserting a CD. After installing your motherboard, just put the CD in the drive and you will be greeted with an auto run. This program will auto detect all of the packages that need to be installed for your computer to run properly.
The installer app has four tabs of interest. The first tab has the software that needs to be installed for the computer to run correctly. You can go down and install these one by one, or just click the express install button at the top. The second tab has some added utilities that Gigabyte packages with its boards. This is where you can install Easy Tune 5 if you want to do some overclocking from the OS.
The next two tabs just give you some detailed information on what exactly came on the driver CD and what exactly is in your computer. This can help you know what you want to install or help you figure out compatibility issues you might experience.
If you have owned a Gigabyte board in the past, you might recognize the Easy Tune software package. This is still included with Gigabyte's motherboards and allows you to do some slight overclocking and tweaking from inside your operating system. This can be nice, but is not as customizable as doing things straight from the BIOS.
