But, I barely had time to use the previous BIOS as I only bought my A8N32-SLI two weeks ago, so I wouldn't know if the previous BIOS had any problems.
But, I can tell you this ......... my Opteron 170 runs at 2700 MHz
I can do either 10 x 270 or 9 x 300 without any problems.
10 x 270 is slightly faster as I can lower the RAM timings and use a command rate of 1T.
RAM is 1:1 with FSB and timings are as follows - 2.5-3-3-6 1T
For 9 x 300 I had to use 3-5-5-10 2T.
I've given it several hours of stress testing at both 10 x 270 & 9 x 300 and found both settings to be rock solid.
I've read that this board will only do 310MHz FSB before is starts playing up.
Not that I tried this with the previous BIOS on my board, but with the new BIOS I couldn't get it stable at 310. 305 was stable though.
@ 310 I could do Doom 3 timedemos over and over again without problem, but once I started stress testing it would start to behave a little weird.
I don't know if that helps, as I can't make any comparisons to the pevious BIOS revision, but as you've read, it does work.
