    For the Maximus it's listed as 0902 but there's a new BIOS as of the 6th.

    Thanks!!

    If you dont have the PCI3 version, it can't magically "enable" pci 3.0... there's hardware required on the board itself. See the MSI vs Gigabyte PCI 3.0 fiasco.

    The new bios is for the ivy-bridge CPU's themselves.
