ASUS A8N32 - 1009 or 1103 BIOS?

This seems to be abit of touchy subject with some A8N32 users however is it recomended to use the latest Bios update 1103? Some people seem to claim it has caused more problems, can anyone refute this?

Thanks,

Pete

  1. 1009 - for the sheer fact that it is stable, its the one i use and ive had no problems.
  2. same here...it is dead stable :lol:

  3. Hi,

    Ultraviolet I see you are using the same motherboard as me with the only diffrence really being I'm using a X2 Dual core cpu. Using that board did you encounter any problems with load times with Windows or any other SATA related issues effecting performance?

    Currenlty I am experiencing anything between 2 - 5 mins to load Windows, I wounder when you installed XP did you use any 3rd party SATA drivers or did the installation process detect the Seagates without them?

    Thanks,

  4. hey pete...I think you problem is the your windows is the trouble...it is the legal one...bet the pirated edition and you'll see that it'll work just fine...same mobo no problems... :twisted:
  5. 1103 running since it came out stable no problems ......
  6. 1103 for quite some time now. Both with 4 GB and 2 GB of RAM.

    Lots of gaming, all the business / graphics / photo applications running on WinXP SP2.
    I use External USB 2 and FireWire drives ... etc. etc.

    Perfectly stable. No issues.
  7. Thanks all :) I've flashed to 1103 and it seems fine.
