Unresponsive BIOS - where to find version?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm having some problems with my BIOS.

I have a Giga-Byte X58A-UD3R (ver 1.0) Motherboard. I had been running BIOS version F6i, which worked but when in the overclocking screen it became very unresponsive resulting in a restart a lot of the time. I hadn't really worried about this too much as I had a decent OC in place and didnt really need to tinker.

I have just upgraded to a i7-990X and thought I would try and fix the BIOS issue at the same time. So I went to Giga-Byte website, the lastest BIOS there is F6. I thought the "i" in the BIOS suffix meant it was BETA, so seeing just the standard F6 I thought it would be the final none beta version and will probably have fixed this bug. So I updated to F6 (I set bios to default values first) and it is still unresponsive, and when I can get OC setting in place it is not as stable as F6i.

It is annoying as I don't seem to have backed up my F6i version BIOS as I would happily go back to that one over what I have now.

So, my main question is... does anyone know where I can get the latest BIOS for this board or the F6i version again? Maybe there are newer BIOS version available, I know I have seen a site somewhere before with different versions of BIOS for this board, to what is found on the Giga-Byte website. I don't mind experimenting with BETA's.. I just want find a BIOS that is stable and responds.

If anyone can assist I would be very grateful..
