The UEFI for the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 has an "OS Type" option with the options "Windows 8" and "Other," though there's no mention of secure boot. Is that what this setting does? The documentation, as usual, sucks.

No, but switching it to "Windows 8" mode would enable an option to let enable an options to let you switch secure boot on/off if your board supports it from what I gather.  As far as I can tell it doesn't. And that option is probably not doing anything other than letting you to enable/disable CSM support (http://en.wikipedia....ace#CSM_booting)
