I am running 1216 now seems good. Just remember to reset default Bios settings before flashing.

Cool... I will have to flash sometime this week. Maybe now my AiSuite temperature will no longer be 10C off my CoreTemp temperature... lol. :)

after.Sorry, but mullet is right. You should reset your BIOS to default BEFORE you flash. Basically helps prevent bad CMOS writes.

Hmmm... my temps readings did not change. Not sure what the BIOS upgrade really did for me beside having a higher version number now.. lol. One weird thing did happen tho, I flashed the BIOS in XP (because I have the ASUSupdate installed in XP), rebooted into XP just fine, then went back to using Vista as always and somehow it completely lost my video card and drivers?!?! All I had to do was reinstall my video drivers but that just seems really damn odd to me. I wonder if something in the addressing changed just enough to throw Vista off and not XP? Very very odd.... Never had a BIOS flash lose my video drivers....

1215 is really the bios that does something by allowing for the new processors. 1216 really doesn't do anything acording to ASUS's own CPU guide. It clearly shows the new processors require 1215 but no mention of 1216 for anything memorable.

1216 would show higher temps if u have a Quad Core
that is the only change from 1215

I agree; it seems some calibration was needed for some of the new Q-processors. I guess if monitoring temperatures is important then 1216 should be used. I think I'll skip 1216 and see if ASUS comes out with a final.
