This BIOS is ONLY for the EVGA 680i SLI Motherboard

P29 BIOS is available now, the major highlights are listed below:

* Additional 1333 FSB Support for future CPUs


BIOS updating can be accomplished VIA the below methods:


FLOPPY Installation - Recommended installation method

* Download the following executable: NF68_P29.exe
* Insert blank floppy disk into drive and run executable
* Restart machine, and set floppy as the primary boot device
* Press "Y" to program BIOS
* After flash, power off PC completely, on reboot load defaults in BIOS




CD/DVD Installation - Recommended installation method

* Download the following .iso file: NF68_P29.iso
* Use a CD Burning software to burn the .iso image onto a blank CD (Nero, Alochol 120%, MagicISO etc.)
* Restart machine, and set the CD Drive as the primary boot device.
* The BIOS flash process will begin, Press “Y” to program BIOS.
* After flash remove the CD, power off PC Completely.
* Turn on the PC and load defaults in BIOS.




Windows Installation - Alternate installation method
Note- If you have an older version of the NVIDIA Update Utility, please remove it before installing this new version

* Before updating your BIOS, please load BIOS defaults by hitting the delete key during POST and select: “Load Defaults.” Now select “Save & Exit Setup.” After that has been completed please follow these instructions:
* Download the following files: NVIDIA Update Center and NF68_P29.bin
* Install the latest NVIDIA Update Center and run the program. (Use ONLY the above version, DO NOT use any previous version of NVIDIA Update Center.)
* Once Update Center opens, Check the box “Clear CMOS” and then hit apply at the bottom right hand corner
* Now select browse and locate NF68_P29.bin
* Select load bios
* After update center finishes, completely shutdown your system
* Once the system is off, unplug your PSU and press the power button on the front of your case. (This will discharge the Motherboard.)
* Wait 30-60 seconds to turn on or plug in your PSU and start up your system.
* Press "Delete" to once again enter the BIOS, and load defaults. Save and exit; your system BIOS is now updated.
