    Default Beta Bios for the EP45-UD3P (rev 1.6) (FDa)?

    The latest released Bios for the EP45-UD3P (rev 1.6) MB is FB. Why does the beta in this forum show as FDa? Typo or just the way Gigabyte names their Bios betas to keep people guessing? The reason I ask is the Tech Rep from Gigabyte was unaware of a new Bios for this board. However, he did not know or did not want to share with me what the Vcore VID was either!

    We post the latest Beta BIOS's. The Tech you spoke with may or may not be aware of the Beta's but likely is instructed not to speak with you about them anyway as they are Beta.

    Vcore VID Is specific to your CPU, no way he could tell you. If you need to know your VID please download CoreTemp it will show you the VID of your particular chip.

    Don't mean to hijack the thread, but since we're on the topic of BIOS for 1.6, do you think that FC will be made public?

    So it is not a typo they just skip from FB to FD.

    EekTheCat do you use sleep mode on you system? I am having a heck of time trying to figure out what is "wrong" with my system since it will not wake up from sleep mode on any setting above 3.4GHz. Gigabyte Tech support (at least one of them that seem pretty competent) said it was probably my Nvidia card that was causing the problem. Of course XFX ignored me.

    Lsdmeasap:
    Okay. Just curious with the slow update. The wait continues.

    Ken429:
    Although I've tried it, I don't use sleep mode, but have heard issues with it on some Giga boards. Is the OC stable? Just a guess, but you've tried FA/FB to check if the BIOS is the problem, haven't you?
    I'd like to help, but I don't know much about sleep mode to be useful. I'd suspect the OC since you can do sleep anywhere below 3.4GHz.

    Yes, they could skip from FB to FD or F8 to F12, just means either there was issues with BIOS files between there and they will not be released or it could also mean another engineer made it is all.

    Nothing to worry about, use the latest

    Ekk, what are you waiting for? Sorry, just not sure what you meant

    Lsdmeasap:
    Am just waiting for more official BIOS. Granted that newer isn't always better, but at least I'd have more options to choose from other than the beta releases.
    It's no big deal so don't worry your busy self about it. :)

    Ahh ok!

    Well it could be a long wait, sorry not sure how close the public release is?

    You are fine to use beta though, it is all I ever use. I only flash finals myself if someone asks me to specifically test something, otherwise they never even see my hard drive

    bump.. whats the latest story with the FD bios for this 1.6 board?
    I just bought one and am having a heck of a time with overheating a Q9650.
    Seems like a bios issue, since v1.0, 1.1 boards have been champions.
    Want to love this board but need a nice bios

    also, where's the link to the official gigabyte beto bios area? Hard to find the latest by weeding through the forums. Would like to have a page I can go to from time to time to check...
    thanks!!!
