Was able to revert to Legacy(-ish) BIOS with third party tools. Hopefully Gigabyte will have ironed out the kinks in the official EFI releases coming in the next 4 weeks and if not let this be a heads up.

Sorry if this is the wrong way to do this, but I didn't want to make a new case for something looking like the same issue.

I seem to experience the same issue with my ZOTAC Z68ITX-A-E after latest EFI BIOS update (Version 2K120619) with support for Ivy Bridge. Running Win7 x64.

Speedfan worked fine with prior BIOS, but now produce same sort of BSOD as described by RoadToNever above.
Tested 4.47beta4 and 4.46. Both fails. Tried the no scan switches, but not combined.

If you like minidump or similar to confirm and analyse, let me know. I can also test betas.
