    Good to know although there's no need or justification to replace my SB with IB. Haswell could be an option next year but that's a different story. I see an option for those with an SB i3 to upgrade to a superior Ivy chip.

    I know, that's why I said for those with the 2500k/2600k/2700k this BIOS update is not so important because Ivy is not bringing much to the table (except for heat... when overclocked at certain freq.) My opinion.

    ECS proclaimed similar sometime ago, almost 2 months ago, yet still waiting. I have no need for IB but hoping some other changes/tweaks/fixes are there.

    I like how they photoshopped an AMD processor on the "promotion" page with all the BIOS links. Besides that, I'll probably upgrade my Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 tonight.

    In one year with the P67 the only BSOD I have had have been when installing Asrock XTU utility. That is twice :) Uninstalled of course.
