Any word on needing a bios update for the upcoming Piledriver Cores? I have the Crosshair V,by far the best mobo I ever owned.
Working on something:
Dave - Is that a Crosshair V Z model or??
Nah, I had to find my own CVF, ASUS isn't to forthcoming with boards for me lately. I might see if I can't get a UD7 from Gigabyte, see if that improves things.
I have this stack of stuff to go through yet, even, so that might take some time yet. I have a TONNE of benchmarking to do!!!
......looking forward for all the reviews comming
Awesome! looking forward
ASUS Crosshair V new bios out. Version* 1605.
Can anybody test this
Yeah, got my 8150 waiting for this BIOS.
got 4.6GHz now
New bios seems to be working out great. next I am going to try and push my RAM a little higher, step by step.
This one seems truly amazing - finally after a YEAR it unlocks 2 cores on my 960T!
Typical, just as I'm about to buy a Piledriver. I had a gut feeling they had screwed up on this since the earlier BIOSes.
Now I may decide not to buy a PD - on the other hand, at least I know the 960T unlocks, maybe Asus hope people in my position will now sell their "6 core" + board and get the Z revision or some new board they will launch, very odd.
That said, I'd still rather have these 2 extra cores.
Do you guys think that the sabertooth 990FX bios that just came out( at 10/10/2012) has the same improvements? I might want to re-do my overclocks if thats the case =D.
Just updated the bios, seems to have the exact same limits(which are fine anyway).
However, with this update Hwmonitor, CPU-Z and even ASUS' own ultility stopped correctly showing the CPU voltage. It wont show the voltage dropping to idle levels.
HWiNFO64 still gives the correct results though, and the temperatures at idle seem to back up the claim that the voltages are actually still dropping.
@durvelle27: gaaahhhh! What you be doing with my same av?! Lol, that's the only way I find my posts in a thread cause I was the only one with that pic.
I'm very interested in seeing what piledriver has to offer. It's still going am3+ as far as everyone knows, right?
Huurhh.....Just bought the Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 - and now they release a BIOS update....this is just soooooo typical.......
XD i love my av and yes its gonna be AM3+
that is asus for you
My little micro ATX from hell setup Love my 8150... but 8350 on the way!
4.830Ghz / Very stable. Running the best Am3 micro atx board made IMO but restricted to a poor 4+1 phase design (890gxm-g65). The good news is this is a more rare black socket in which they revised the power phase circuitry so this one does not go up in flames with pushed like the older white socket versions lol
Seems the new catalyst 12.10 shows invalid but no funny business - scores are good and will retest when they update their site.
just real quick are you going to trade that chip for a Vishera unit when they hit?
The 8150 is going to a friend of mine, the 8350 will be in this rig next.
Before I junp in with Piledriver is there a bios that can disable 1 core per the single module
Is there a BIOS update available for your board yet?
ASUS is dragging their feet on supplying BIOS updates for my M5A99X Evo and M5A97 Evo boards but they went ahead and did the updates for some of the higher end boards already.
C'mon ASUS- get your s**t together and do it already!!!
*EDIT- BIOS update is posted *
Yeah MSI even though they claimed to have updated their bios on all their AM3+ boards... No not so much lol So unless they get it together by the end of this week. Goodbye MSI, Hello ASUS Formula Z
They didnt update the Asus Sabertooth yet either, atleast, the rev1.0
Ha awesome, just a minute before writing this post, nothing was on the site, 5 minutes after: Kapow! new bios!
