Default Re: bios 1004 for a7n8x 1.xx w/ 200MHz available!

If they did do something in the firmware to lower noise, its probably slowing down the chipset.

I just upgraded this morning (board rev 1.04), and the bios seems fine although I don't have a 3200+ processor to try out the new bus speed.

After reading a few boards, it looks like the bios probably increases stability for the chipset; Nvidia mentioned that the new bios reduces noise on the board required for higher speed operation.
