I hope so as I dont have an older cpu to flash with
mine did last week - 0701 BIOS
Thanks, fingers crossed for me then.
I hope im buying the right board. I keep getting tempted with the gigabyte DQ6
This was my concern as well. Anyone else picked one of these up recently and had the right/wrong BIOS installed?
Me! But I ordered from another store which guaranteed the 0701 BIOS.
Heretic! Mods, burn him at the stake!!
Possibly a wise choice reading some of the problems people have been having. Does anyone know if the 0701 BIOS supports the Allendale? And, for that matter, does the old BIOS also support the Allendale?
And does anyone know - if you get the old BIOS and it works fine with the Allendale, is it worth still flashing it with the new 0701 BIOS?
The 0701 bios is now really old.
The new 1101 is out.
Ok, so would the 0701 and the 1101 both work ok with the Allendale? And if I receive the mobo with either of the old BIOS installed, is it worthwhile flashing with the new, new 1101 BIOS?
If you haven't seen this thread Gibbo added a comment that those boards have the updated BIOS now, so you should at least get a workable one
yes to the first question.
and yes to the second question.
Its always advisable to have the latest bios.They are revised for stabilty,performance and compatibilty reasons.
@ Tetras - thanks for that, I'd missed his post.
@ easyrider - and thanks for that too. I knew how BIOS updates could affect the system, but wasn't sure if it was applicable to all of the compatible cpu's or whether there may be 2 different versions for the 2 different chips. Cheers for clearing it up.
