Somebody the Nvidia one, instead of an EVGA, XFX one?

I've had this update in a few weeks now and not had any problems. Seems like on bootup its a good 5-10 seconds faster too.

List sounds fairly similar to the changes they made for the 780I boards as well. I didn't post it up but there is a P08 for anyone with a 780I board with much of the same tweaks.

Somebody knows a link to the nvidia file, instead of the xfx and evga one?

Has anyone tried the new update with a Q6600 B3 CPU.I upgraded to the P.32 Bios update and I had nothing but hell ,I could'nt get it to overclock past 2.6g and I got constant reboots and my computer would freeze up just bowseing the web.Then I liked to have never got it to flash back ,it would say the file could'nt be found.I fineally reset my CMOS again and loaded up the defaults and it fineally flashed back to what I had it to.Then all my problems went away.

So this means you can now use the Q95xx's on the 680i's now!??! That is funny as hell because I remember how "impossible" it was to do on the 680i's yet now, a simple little bios fix...

Anyhow, I wonder if there is ram that would work best for the 680i's my old crucial memory went bad in my old board. I still have a 680i lying around that I could use for another computer, along with my 8800 ultra...maybe thinking a gaming/htpc for the big LCD!?! *puts pinky up to left side of my lips*
