    Default EP45-UD3LR flashing to F8 worth it?

    Hey

    I just bought a GIGABYTE EP45-UD3LR and I really like it :) The bios version on the board is F7, but I can see that there is a newer bios version, namely F8. Link: GA-EP45-UD3LR (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - BIOS - at F8 it says: "Improve memory/ATI VGA card compatibility".

    I have a Radeon 5850, so I'm wondering if I will get any performance boost by flashing bios to f8 (im not going to crossfire).
    I don't like flashing bios unless it's necessary, so does anyone know what exactly thats better with the F8 compared to the F7 ? If there is anyhing.

    You have sort of answered your own q.
    In the "if it aint broke dont fix it" context.
    New bios generally has a listing of what is improved/what bugs have been fixed.
    If your setup is working ok and your overclocks are doing what u expect ....

    Ive updated my bios on my board...the only difference ive noticed are more accurate temp readouts,but that may just be the monitoring software updates.
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
