    I think the (Fx) means any F followed by a number as in F1 through F10 in our case. On other motherboards newer ones they are still in experimental "-" A bios as in (F8c) is a betta the letter following the number means a new release betta bios. Also expeimental. N/A means non supported. N/A as in Do not purchase them for this board. The new Phenom II X4 955 is N/A as well as the 9950 & 9850 It seems the board will support the 95Watt at 4000MT's but not the 125 or 140Watt at 4000MT's
    I would'nt trust this one.

    They (Gigabyte) are trying to always post change logs now, Stasio and I always post them when we add a BIOS/Set of BIOS to the BIOS thread. Of course those get buried quickly. We have no way to add change logs to the main page because of character limits here

    Jz's site keeps a detailed change log, but this is only Intel. I don't know of any AMD Based Sites where you could find AMD Change logs though, sorry about that.

    It also seems to me that Gigabyte could only do well to supply Lsdmeasap with a new AMD computer for testing Gigabyte's AMD components.

    Someone with over 13,000 posts must be considered a serious contributor to Gigabyte's reputation.

    EDIT: Well, I thought that over and posted a new thread and poll to see how popular such an idea might be.
    @Lsdmeasap, please pardon my not asking your permission. Perhaps that was wrong of me. My intent was to be able to say that you yourself were absolutely not connected with anything for personal gain, and there was no conflict of interest, as you did not know beforehand.

    I am hoping the question will in any case only underline your popularity on the forum. Appreciation where appreciation is due.

    @Artdrivers, I didn't see your last post right away. Thanks for that.

    You would need to PM stasio and ask if he will add the url for change logs to his post. JZ and him have not been getting along, so you may not have any luck with that.

    Well there has been some tussle about Beta BIOS is all, and Ego's seem to be getting in the way instead of everyone working for the better to improve things for all Gigabyte customers.

    He (JZ) won't reply to my PM's either and I wrote him a huge nice letter trying to be friends!

    @Artdrivers, on your post #25 in this thread you mention saving the new f10 BIOS to a floppy. That used to be part of the F11 function. You can do that now? I didn't notice that when I had BIOS f10 on yesterday. If that is available, maybe I'll switch back to BIOS f10 again.

    (It is a little confusing when the keyboard buttons F10 and F11 are so close in name to the BIOS f10 designation, isn't it?)

    I haven't been able to regain my 20-second POSTs in BIOS f8, so I might as well go to the new f10 BIOS if I can save my f10 profiles somewhere.

    F10 speeds up your boot time? So it's not a drive after all unless the drives are setup in bios somehow different. You will want to wait for a fix. I sent Gigabyte a call tag. When we flash a bios we are suppose to start new profiles. The 2 bios flashes are very different in appearence, I would'nt dare try a profile from F8 in F10. What I was referring to is saving the "Save CMOS to BIOS" profile to floppy on the F8 bios because in my RAID I can't save it to C like I could when C was a single SATAII IDE drive. I just lost that function when I set the RAID function up. The only save I am offered is floppy drive now.

    No, I've confused you. I meant to say that I had tweaked my settings in BIOS f8 so that I got POST beeps at 20 seconds, which was the fastest-ever for this computer. Yesterday I flashed to BIOS f10 and didn't like it, so I flashed back again to f8.

    But since then I have not been able to get my 20-second POSTs back, even though everything is supposedly the way it was.
    EDIT: And I even had a system crash this morning when I called up CPU-Z.
    Gr-r-r-r. So I think I might as well return to f10.
    ________________________

    'NOTHER EDIT: On a pseudocold startup (after holding in the case button while power was off, to release capacitor memory) I got my best-so-far timings back again (using BIOS f8). Things are looking up!
    Power ON: 0:00
    POST beep (distorted b-BEEP sound): 0:19 (i.e. 19 seconds)
    Boot screen: 1:00
    XP 64 desktop: 2:04
    XP 64 all set to go; no further hourglasses: 3:23 (this time is arbitrary, according to user's choice of startup apps)
    ________________________

    I never did tweak things in f10, so I didn't mean to say it affected the performance of my system.

    But how do you save the f10 BIOS settings to a floppy or a hard drive? Is there a technique I don't know? (I was using F11 to do that.)
