Improves stability = 300% more voltage needed compared to what used to be stable. tongue.gif

So you would not recommend an update?

Based on my tests, 4.8 GHz at 1.248V still rock solid stable. POST time is about 3.6 seconds, boot into windows from power on is 6.5 seconds. BIOS 1301 gets a thumbs up from me, maintains everything nicely and POST sped up a bit. Will do my usual OC to 5.0 GHz later to see if more or less voltage is needed, enough play for now, time to do some work.

Thanks for reporting back. I hope you're getting some actual work done right now.

I have not tried the newest bios so I really can't comment on it. I was more referring to every bios after 804. (the one mine came with) Everything after that caused instability at what I knew was stable before.

Glad to hear that they might have actually release a good, new bios. I wish the hero had a bios switch like my X79 dark does. I know it's a high end feature, but it is a dang nice one. I'll do my own testing of it when I can actually afford to get a case for the Hero and 4770k. Move + bad previous tenant = 600 dollar electrical bill that I have to pay because my city is money hungry. Whoo.
