Since Nvidia hasn't posted any new chipset drivers, I'm not going to upgrade those. But I find it very interesting that Linkboost is being removed in 1102. I'll have to give this BIOS a try.

It was also removed from the EVGA 680i as well

I think it was due to the large temp increase that it caused

I'm glad because LinkBoost is a joke IMO. These are good BIOS. I'm excited for a performance increase BIOS like some of the others have been.

Link Boost has been removed from nVidia's site 3 months ago now. Seems to cuase stability issues. ABIT still have not removed it from their boards.

HAHAH! The first time where mobos are specifically reduced to the lite version to increase functionality.

I'm thinking about trying the DFI when it hits. Interesting how they decided to go with the LT version on the get go.
