    Anyone up for being a guinea pig and testing?

    So, with some time on my hands due to the Wife not barking orders, curios as I am I decide to foist some shenanigans upon a host of ASRocks file servers and looky what I discovered.

    Low and behold what gets returned, P67 Extreme4 Gen3(2.10)ROM.zip, which I believe to be an Instant Flash revision 2.10 BIOS for this P67 Extreme4 Gen3 board.

    Caveat Utilitor. You, the end user here, accept full responsibility should you proceed in using/flashing the below linked file(s).

    The new policy I am referring to is that they now charge for the new BIOS chip in these situations. This issue has many threads in this forum, and others have received free chips, AFAIK.

    Nice find, I looked at the unzipped file (slow server), and it has the file name format for an Instant Flash BIOS file.

    ALL of the warnings above ARE STILL VALID, nothing has changed in that regard.

    Those that want to try reflashing their BIOS to 2.10, should do the following:

    Unzip the P67 Extreme4 Gen3(2.10)ROM.zip file, and copy the resulting "10" file to the main/root folder of a USB flash drive. The file should be P67E4G32.10, and is 8192 KB. Put the USB flash drive in a USB 2.0 port on the board's I/O panel, to insure you have a working USB port when you are in the BIOS.

    Restart or start the PC, and go into the UEFI/BIOS. You can press F6 during POST to start Instant Flash too, but I like the UEFI method. Instant Flash is in the Advanced options listing, at the bottom. When you start it, the USB flash drive will be read, and any valid BIOS files it finds will be displayed. There are no confirmation prompts at all, once you click something, it does it so be careful.

    As has been reviewed earlier in this thread, leave the USB flash drive in the PC when it reboots when Instant Flash is complete. Really no reason to remove the Flash drive, except that it will likely be first in the boot list, which can be fixed after a second restart.

    It's possible this update will be rejected as an "older" version, relative to what you have now. I hope not, just FYI.

    Hey, guess what, the instructions for performing the BIOS update in Windows has been fixed on this boards page. Might want to look at that to see if you missed anything the first time you used it.
