Heres on single phase and F2 bios
F3 is released on their page. I went in and checked what was available for me to run through ModBin and noticed that much. I did unhide some options if you're interested in flashing it. I won't be able to flash it to mine till I get an AM3 CPU :\ Though if you're worried about it, I've been using ModBin to "unlock" the BIOS on a good 10 boards over the past month or so and have had 100% success rate. My own Gigabyte S939 I've tinkered with the BIOS and flashed about 6 times so far, back to back even, w/o incident But I'd understand if you don't want to heh
Though to be fair it's not all that better than factory :\ I was hoping to find ACC hidden, but no dice. Just a lot of Side Port options hidden and the only real good thing was the CPU Northbridge multiplier, allowing for x21 and x22. x23-31 won't toggle as "selectable" :\ Still I don't see that really helping anything, but I don't know what default is and so can't tell you as this will be my first new setup since my S939 heh
Would you dump F2 for me though? I'd like to see if maybe it has some things still in it but hidden that was removed in F3
Anyways here's the options added, doubt they are of much use. There is an option under the section for the SidePort (SP) memory size that is blank, it's above 4mb, so I'd figure that would be "Disabled", but I didn't unhide it and label it. I figure if anyone wanted to do that it'd just be the same as selecting only UMA.
Nice OC though Phase-Change is basically like an AC unit right? Where the compressed freon is passed through a tube into a water-block of sorts, cooling the CPU? Back around 1999 when I was building my first PC, before I went with the Athlon 550, I almost got a phase-change case setup and was going to pair it with a K6-III heh I didn't know jack about PCs then and wouldn't have even known what I was buying really >_>
Bah, you have a magic chip that can do magical North Bridge speeds! Just look at that memory bandwith coming from an AMD!
But I need better more pwerful ram, this D9GTR already old
This board freaked out with cold
F4 bios went blank and really hard if not impossible to run NB @>4000
Heres on LN2 and NB @ 2.6Ghz
Still not good enough with this cooling
This booard will go back to its box, no time to test more. Next will be Asus 890GX
Hope it will fare better
Damn, wish I would've known you were testing all these boards I would've bought your used one!
So F4 BIOS is not quite as OC friendly as previous huh?
It just happened when I use LN2.
Probly my ram or bios settings, but one thing for sure......bioses not smooth enough for xtreme cold other than that all is ok
Asus board will be frozen soon
What were the results on the Hybrid CF test? Never heard back from ya
It won't work with 5970
Bummer :\ Have to wait till I get a CPU then and test it with my old x1950 Pro. Thanks though!
