AM3 support is why I would like the new bios update.

Im not in the mood atm to take my sound card out of my pc to check for the serial #.

Thank you for the information,

what is the reason that you updated BIOS in the first place?
Now the BIOS size should be 797KB and not 768k like you mention before.


What is your motherboard's serial Number? Use following link, to help you located:

How do I know the model name and version of the motherboard

Flakey :: System boots ALOT slower during POST (not loading an OS). Long pause to turn monitor on and keyboard lights blink alot. Then once Vista starts to load the green bar goes by twice as long on bios revision 1/23/09 compared to 8/2008 bios.

You disable onboard devices and they stay enabled and show up in device manager in Windows.

Also I notice the newer bios file is 768k and the older Bios file is 896k (file size may vary) So if you programmed MORE code for the newer Processors I would think the bios should be larger not smaller.

BIOS File size's
1/23/09 :: 797KB
8/22/08 :: 859KB
4/17/08 :: 859KB

Can you please give more details of what you mean by "flakey"?






Christopher Otter Posted : GMT 2009/02/21 22:28:37
The new bios is still very flakey, and I am still having issue's with it. It updates so I can use a AM3 processor and would like to be able to use this board.

After upgrading to your recent bios from the original one onboard audio cannot be disabled via BIOS. Its enabled even when it says disabled. System is very unstable with any bios but the one released in august which isnt on the USA site download list.

So AM3 support is only trivial?
