Abit IN9 32X-MAX

Has anyone here used the IN9 32X-MAX board? From reading the Newegg reviews it looks like it was shipped with an early and buggy bios that won't post with a Q6600. The solution is to boot it with an older 775 CPU and upgrade the bios before installing the quad core processor. This would be my first Intel build in 8 years and I don't have access to an older CPU. I'd really like to buy this board because the $100 rebate it currently has makes it look very appealing. Does anyone know if it's still shipping with the old bios or have any other suggestions?

Unless you're going to use 2 or more Nvidia graphics cards you'd probably be better off with a P35.

It shouldn't be shipping with an old BIOS unless it is old stock. You never really know though, might want to find an old s775 chip to flash the BIOS with, or just tough it out and hope for the best :D

I am currently using the Abit IN9-32x-max, and it works like a charm.

Just remember to flash to beta 14 bios and the q6600 will work fine.

Thanks for the input. I found a friend that has an older 775 CPU I can borrow if the need arises. I think I'll give it a shot, seems like a lot of board for the money.

Apologies for bumping old post. I'm in the same boat with the non-booting Abit IN9. But have the Q6600 fitted. What old cpu would suit to upgrade the bios. Any 775? Or within the last year or two cpu. Cheer's.

I'm using an E8400 in mine.
