I had on of the first Dual Bios boards (GA-7ZXR iirc), never needed it, BIOS OC recovery was good enough! Still a nice fall back if something does go wrong, can't believe it's taken 10 years to become standard!

Dual bios saved my dad's computer once. He had a Gigabyte dual-bios socket A board back in the day and he tried upgrading the bios and it failed for some reason. Really a great feature, although I've never had a bad flash myself. I sure have cleared the CMOS plenty though... :laugh:
