I got ahold of that beta 1.6 BIOS and modified it. All useful hidden options have been unlocked, makes the board somewhat more flexible and a little more OC friendly.

Unlocked options:

Delay prior to thermal
TM2 bus ratio
TM2 bus vid
CPU L1 & L2 cache
OS select for DRAM
SLP_S4# assertion width (?)
System BIOS cachable
Video BIOS cachable
Memory hole at 15>16MB
PCI Express port 1 through to 5 (?)
DRAM data integrity
IDE HDD block mode
SATA port speed
SATA port
EPP mode select
ECP mode use DMA
ACPI function
Video off method
Suspend mode
PCI PIRQ[A-D]# (?)
Force update ESCD

I may of missed an option or 2 but thats a bulk of them thats been unlocked at least. Any option marked with a "?" means either I havent tested to see exactly how the option works, or simply I have no bloody clue what its for because of its weird name.

Let me know your results if you try it.

I have no idea if it fixes any quad issues, its just beta2 of BIOS 1.6 with a small army of quite useful unlocked options.

i dont know whats the exact problem, but sometimes my pc restarts or does the blue screen of death.
i think it has something to do with the low voltage of the g0 stepping of the q6600
