    Default What's in the P35-DS4 v2.0 F9 Bios?

    I noticed the F9 bios is out. I have noticed that what is listed on the website for what changed in the bios doesn't even come close to what actually changed. Without getting into all the updatesl, F8 did a lot of work to fix a VDroop problem which I didn't even know software could do. Now I am afraid to make any further updates as I didn't know it could make a change like this for the positive and obviously could be reverted in future releases. I would like to know specifically all the changes that the F9 bios did. Any help? And please don't state what the website says.

    Thanks.

    I think this is a good thing, however what does the HPET do? Also once I install F9 guess I will know this, however what are the settings available on this option and what should it be? Sounds like this HPET thing is something specific to Vista from what I'm reading. People also talk about drivers. Do I need special drivers in Windows to support it?

    Thanks.

    Installed F9 and was looking at my notes. HPET was already on the BIOS. Also as for the Loadline CPU vcore control item correct me if I'm wrong, however this was implemented in F8 and F9 just controls whether it's active or not correct? I noticed an improvement in F8 with my voltage drop, however F9 seems the same, except it has controls for Loadline on or not.

    dunno...seems a bit more stable here
    HPET is actually only currently useable in Vista
    at least they have fixed Smartfan with this bios release :D
