    Talking Bios mods for a7n8x-x

    here're the modded bioses for a7n8x-x. they are based on the original bios, ftp://www.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/mb/so...x-x/1010_X.zip

    - L12 (200fsb) mod built-in
    - higher bandwidth romsips (10x/10.5x multi fixed) from dfi infinity 6-19 bios
    - xp-m cpu name included
    - various bios options/settings are unhidden
    - original 3.04 bpl in the cpc on bios (bpl unmodded) and cpc off (name ending with 2T, modded bpl)

    1010-XMOD2 cpc on

    1010-XMOD2 cpc off

    cheers sp, for the upload space

    note: the bioses are untested. use them at your own risk!!

    I stand in awe

    As soon as I get my second Mobo from RMA, I'll use that as a testing platform.

    Great job!

    Re: Bios mods for a7n8x-x

    Finally got around to testing the probably best a7n8x-x bios around:
    As a result I managed to squeeze out another 7 Mhz out of my poor old Infineon PC2100 RAM stick, which gives me a 1:1 FSB of 217 MHz. Everything smooth and stable, Salute to Trats!

    usually,
    if you are not just hunting the highest possible FSB megahertzwise, you will be better off using CPC on since that gives you better performance...

    Re: Bios mods for a7n8x-x

    So, heres further feedback:
    after some weeks of testing I went back to the official BIOS, since my machine was giving me random hard reboots from just about any situation once every couple of days. It does seem to be this bios since I eliminated every other possible cause and did have a completely stable system before; probably the romsips are adressed in a bad manner every once in a while... Memtest was running without errors, though...
