Same BIOS as when it shipped?

100% stable?

Haven't made any changes since you built it?

[checks website he is visiting - - yep, Overclock.com, "the pursuit of performance"]

YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!



Just kidding with you - - I understand the desire and philosophy to keep it running smooth. It is always a gamble and a choice to upgrade, and I skip it sometimes, too.

So, for those that DO want to tweak forward, let's hear it from the Premium users who have flashed this new BIOS - - results?

And if anyone can find me that thread on flashing -E with a Premium BIOS, I would be thankful - - my search-Fu is weak . . .

There is a new -E BIOS as well. It is posted on the ASUS ftp site. It is version 0405.
ftp://ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1366/P6X58D-E/

I flashed back to the new -E BIOS and am doing testing now.

Thank you, sir, +REP for House Gryffindor!

I checked the regular ASUS download site this morning, and did not see the BIOS, but I like your link better - - ftp for the win!

I will have to give the new -E BIOS a run this evening. Let me know how it goes for you, and thanks for the links on cross-flashing.

I found some changelog information for you on the ASUS forums, and the discussion there is that this was going to be posted on the global site the 11th of this month.

Sounds like they are finally bringing the -E up to the same memory compatibility as the Premium.

I talked back and forth through email with them about a bunch of issues with the -E BIOS.. the main one being memory compatibility and using XMS profiles causing a no POST.

Thanks alot the prem bios seems to be more stable and posts alot faster I uploaded the flash programs and the latest premium bios to this post so we dont have to depend on rapidshare. And quoted the info from xtreme systems on how to do it. When you first enter bios after flashing from a -e to a prem you might wanna turn off the features you dont have like the extra lan and stuff. This would be nice to be put on the first page for those wanna do it.

with the premium bios i am able to run 210blk for 4400mhz but dang its hot it hit 100c lol but its 82f in my room right now.

All it takes is a bootable DOS floppy or CD, and an engineering release of AFUDOS

AFUDOS /ifilename.rom /pbnc /n

Make sure to not understand the /i as part of the filename...it is the command parameter, and the filename follows without space.

I have four storage devices that I'd like to use on this mobo.
1. Crucial C300 128gb SSD - for OS, programs
2 & 3 are WD 500gb HDD - for RAID 0
4. WD 1TB HDD - for backing up C drive and data on RAID 0

According to the manual " Due to chipset limiation, when est any of SATAports to RAID mode, all SATA ports run at RAID mode together." Does it mean it's all RAID or nothing? We can't mix RAID and None RAID drives in SATA port 1 thru 6?

I did try to mix, but system won't boot from C300 SSD and gave the blue screen of death.

1. Crucial C300
2.WD 500GB
3.WD 500GB
4.WD 500GB
5.WD 1TB

that's 5 by my count but maybe you wrote something wrong.
Run the C300 and 1tb WD drive on the SATA III ports and the rest on the SATA II ports and problem solved

Sorry, it's
1. Crucial C300
2. WD 500GB
3. WD 500GB
4. WD 1TB

I've read the Marvel driver slows down Crucial C300 SSD on SATA III. Maybe I could do RAID on SATA III ports. But the SATA setting in BIOS seems to be either all RAID, or all AHCI or all IDE.
