    Sorry for the late reply!

    I have done the mod, but have not had time to test it yet so I don't want to post yet. Normally I'd go ahead and pass it out, but since I do have this board and can test, and this BIOS is a bit different, I want to test before passing it out.

    I'll give it out even if there is problems, I'll just make you aware of any issues I see, I just need to be sure it's safe to flash first is all then I will post it for you. I hope to find time to test this evening, then I'll post

    I prefer to 24/7 it @4.5ghz, but it would be nice to see what it's capable of :).

    Thanks for your time :).
    Not sure which is the best BIOS on this board as I've been busy with other models lately, but you should be fine to test out any BIOS you like as there is not any issues I'm aware of with any of the newer BIOSes

    OK, I have tested the F5b MOD BIOS for X58A-OC

    Intel RAID Enabled in BIOS by itself (IE No Marvell RAID) = RAID Option ROM Skipped during POST, but fine to use RAID arrays

    Intel RAID Enabled in BIOS + Marvell RAID Enabled = Intel RAID Option ROM Skipped during POST, but fine to use RAID arrays. Marvell ROM cannot load - IE No Marvell Option ROM, but can use Marvell array already created or new can be created in windows.

    Marvell RAID only enabled in BIOS, Intel AHCI or IDE = Fine to enter Marvell option ROM

    The main reason this BIOS is different than others is due to the memory size allotted for option ROM's during post and since the Marvell controller has it's own BIOS that takes up much of that room set aside for ROM's to load. That is very likely the reason they use the old (Smaller) Intel ROM to begin with, but the similar applies with the older ROM as well anyway. Meaning you cannot enter the Marvell ROM during post if Intel + Marvell RAID is enabled, but you can use RAID on both via disk arrays, or creating arrays in windows on either controller, and you can still enter the Intel ROM during POST with the older ROM so that is probably why they stuck with it for now.

    So, in short, this mod does not fully/properly work as you would expect but it is usable if you know what to expect and how to work around certain things. I can give you this BIOS if you like with the updated Intel ROM and Realtek LAN, but you will have to conform to the above and understand that if you need to create or modify any RAID arrays on either controller that would need to be done in windows, and no RAID creation will be possible from either ROM during POST unless ONLY the Marvell is set to RAID.

    If you would like the BIOS send me a PM please, I will not post this in public due to it's not ideal for many to use without fully understanding the issues it presents and how you would work around them if needed. If you do request it, I ask that you please do not post it publicly and that you do not pass the link around to anyone, thanks!

    Fair enough. Thanks for the extensive testing too! Would you mind uploading the file somewhere?

    GA-EX58-UD4 F11r MOD - Tested and working

    Update Intel RAID ROM - 10.5.0.1034
    Update Realtek - v2.40
    J.Micron - 10706

    GA-EX58-UD4 F11r MOD.zip

    @ Rafale, send me a PM to remind me. Not sure why you want it though, it's not really functional, or ideally functional anyway, as I mentioned.

    Do you use RAID, and if so on what controller so I could do additional testing before I decide to send you the file, thanks!

    Many thanks to Lsdmeasap for the mod. I have tested it and worked perfectly!

    Guys, how can I safely upgrade bios for X58A-UD7 (rev. 1.0) version F7t to F8o not to lose data from my raid array?

    Please advice.

    Is the bios F8o the latest?

    Thanks!

    Just update the bios. You will not lose your data on your raid array. I use raid my self. You are safe. Just dont go into the bios and delete your raid array.

    Your raid consists of 2 wd 1.5 green drives the WD15ears? Be careful as I had 2 of these drives for storage and had 1 drive fail on me with bad sectors.

    Yes , they're way more expensive , but you should use the Raid Edition ( WD RE4 ) drives for RAID arrays . They're built to take the extra work load , and have a 5 year warranty .
