According to the latest information, there exist at least two revisions of the ASUS Striker Extreme motherboard: 1.00G and 1.03 My Asus Stiker Extreme version is 1.00G should I have a concern since I was reading the following information online.....

Owners of motherboards with revision 1.03 report there are no issues in overclocking up to FSB=500 MHz and higher МГц with neither Conroe not Allendale processors. That is, we arrive at the simple conclusion - unless the new BIOS versions raise the overclocking capability, then only revision 1.03 should be bought. Most likely, version 1.00G is only in motherboards of the very fist batches ("for the press"), but the retail shops will receive "normal" revisions. In any case, take care!

My question is would a simple bios update cure any future problems?

So it appears no ones knows? If you have the Asus Striker Extreme Edition version 1.00G please share your insights on how it's handling overclocking and if you've personally ran into any kinds of performance problems. I'd sure like you feedback on this.

I'm really thinking that there is no 1.03 version of the Striker. The article at Digital Daily that you referred to, started the misconception. I believe that the P5N32-E SLI Plus is the rev. 1.03 that Digital daily refers to, and someone didn't double check their facts before posting the review.

However there are two "revisions" of the Striker Extreme, (but both are 1.00G versions), the original Taiwan built version and the later China built version. The only things that I know for sure are;
1. Taiwan manufaturing number is 90-MIB140-G0EAY00T.
2. China manufacturing number is 90-MIB140-G0AAY00Z and has a slightly different heat pipe setup.

To date, I have not seen any pictures showing any revision other than 1.00G. I am NOT saying that other versions do not exist, I am simply waiting on some proof that they do exist.

Hey! Great! thank you for the heads up on that man! Here' a picture of my Asus Striker Extreme setup with a slightly different heat pipe disign. It's build
1.00G with a dual heat pipe design. So for the record there are two designs out there and mine is the better one of the two.

The best stable BIOS for me with overclocking is the 1301 bios. I have higher stable FSB with this Bios. 1303 and 1305 lost overclock ability for me. Also I found a good power supply will hlep you push even further.

maybe the 1.00G is for SLi and the other revision is for crossfire?

I'll ask Chris at HP gaming when i call..

HP has made their own hacked BIOS to run the crossfire on the striker.

Stupid IMO, then people who use crossfire can't have a Yorkfield, like they could with the X38.

It caused more major problems and is stupid because you now have to use HP bios versions and flash from your OS which is very stupid.
I'm glad the damn board fried, but they suck for all the false advertising and screwing me around which was a bad idea.

Lets see if I still have a little magic left in me to do this so it works like it should.
I see some things in there that can be done better, VooDoo DNA my A$$, all hype and some really stupid design flaws.

HP/Voodoo PC is working on a newer bios version which is due out anytime.

I'm waiting on an nForce 790i Chipset to come out before I totally drop this board.
