You can do the bios either way. If you want to do it right off the bat I would download a few of the recent bios and put them on a flash drive or cd, and backup the original just in case.

Okay, found some MORE details on what BIOS 0303 contains from another post dated this morning, 6/10, within a larger thread over on xtremesystems.org:

Quote:
P6X58D-E

BIOS 303

1. Set default UCLK frequency to 2133MHz for i7 970.
2. Display HDD size in Drive Xpert configuration in BIOS setup.
3. Added Marvell 9128 Drive Xpert support.
4. Enable support for 1.25V, 1.35V, 1.65V option in DRAM Voltage Settings
5. Changed Q-Fan manual mode critical temperature from 75C to 95C.
6. Added additional memory options (tRFC settings) for improved memory clocking.
7. Updated Marvell 9128 firmware and Option Rom.
8. Added Marvell 9128 Option ROM auto skip function.
9. General 3D performance improvements at stock settings.
Not sure where this information is coming from . . . all they have on the ASUS site is what we saw before:

Quote:
P6X58D-E 0303 BIOS
1. Improve memory compatibility
2. Improve system stability
3. Support new CPUs. Please refer to our website at: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/c...Language=en-us
Anyways . . .

Regarding this BIOS, I am not seeing a lot of red flags in other forums (i.e., "OMG they friezz my boardz!!"), so I am thinking I will toss this on my deck tonight and see how things go.

Number 9, "General 3D performance improvements at stock settings" has me intrigued - - I wonder if they made some of the changes to alleviate the issue SOME 5XXX graphics card users were having with lines and the grey screen of death (GSOD), and are "hiding" it in this simple statement??

I mention it, because with my Xfire 5770s, I have one, thin light grey line on the right side of my middle 3x1 Eyefinity setup . . . it has me concerned . . . might be 10.5 Catalyst driver, tho, and those new idle speeds people are talking about . . .

Hope that BIOS info helps someone! It was good for me . . .

I'm a first time builder and have a questions about the post above. I will be getting the P6X58D P motherboard as well. Do you mean that you have to install all of the BIOS revisions or do you just install the lastest one?

You can always update directly to the newest bios, skipping any in between.

Nope, you do not you can just install the latest one. It's just nice to have all of them in one place because a certain revision may not work well for your hardware.

You probably don't have to worry about which order you do it in. But, if it were me personally, I would probably flash the BIOS prior to installing the OS, but, thats just me. What's nice about this board, is that Asus has a feature built into the BIOS called "Express Gate" which allows you to get Internet access without having any OS installed. This would be a great way for you to access the Asus site and pull down the BIOS for your board to a thumb/flash drive and get updated in the event that you dont have a secondary computer/laptop laying around.
