check the white sticker next to the 24-pin power connect last 4 numbers if its 0705 or earlier you will need a chip
the original chips did not have room for all the data to run all the code for bulldozer
if you have an old original chip you may have buy a chip from asus

i need a new chip, signed into the estore and i cant buy one. cost me more to ring them than to buy it directly, i wonder if the new ones would be sold on ebay so i can get one

that's the us number and store, try the uk one http://asus.co.uk/support/

i live in the us...
i called motherboard support and they said to call the estore. the estore number plays a prerecorded message then goes dead. nice biggrin.gif

No there won't be one, Fast Boot is a switch that is not on the regular CHVF Motherboard, Windows 8 may load faster than 7 on the Motherboard, but to get the full "Fast Boot" compatibility, you need to buy the CHVF-Z Motherboard.

So showing that PDF for our board was just to piss us off. Got it!

got through to the estore today, they wanted to check with the cs manager but went ahead and sent it free. no shipping even. so im happy
fyi the serial number is on the pci slot - not one of the two numbers by the atx power

Mine is the original 0404 batch but my local Asus office says there is no such thing ie. no need to do any chip replacement cos flashing the latest BIOS will do.

And I have looked over at the Asus ROG Crosshair forums and can't find any info about the need for replacing the BIOS chip either. Strange that different Asus reps have been saying different things.

ROG should count for something. Ambiguity is not one of the things I would expect from a high-end organization.

I broke down and bought a replacement, will update if there's any tangible difference.
It was kind of a rip off at $25 though, could likely have put that better to use on something else.

Also, to clarify (and to derp), it's this digit that is the indicator, correct?
The reason I ask it seems a lot lower than the others in comparison and release BIOS was 0404...
