The most current non-beta bios is 1103, but the beta version 1205 indicates it supports the Razer USB Copperhead. So, might as well since your going to be using a beta bios just download the most recent which is 1403. http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5N32-E%20SLI/1403.zip

Here's the link for the DOS flash utility. http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/flash/AWDFLASH131.zip

There are 2 versions of the P5N32-E, the SLI and the SLI Plus. The SLI Plus doesn't use the same BIOS so make sure your not using that version before you download and flash with this BIOS revision.

Well, unfortunately since you will be using beta code, problems will surface. So, use it if you want to fix your problems and take your chances. It's up to you if you want to opt for the 1205 version instead but both are beta code. Or just wait until the non-beta version comes out but no telling how long that will be.

I suggest using the latest beta BIOS... Before you flash your BIOS, make sure you reset all overclocking you have done to stock settings.

P5N32-E SLI BIOS V1403
Support new CPUs. Please refer to our website.

What problem are you having with the Razer and your system? Just curious because I am having boot-issues as of lately, and I just installed a Razer mouse.

I've never considered the mouse being an issue with the system failing to boot, so I was wondering what your issue is.

it's not somethig like ... it won't boot ... only that my mouse seems to get stuck when windows starts. i think this is the prob this mb has with razer components.

i just changed my cpu from e6750 to q6600 made a bios update to 1103 and ordered 2gb of ram. and now i have problems with them. it seems i cannot run my system with 4gb on this mobo ... any suggestions ?

I am currently using the 1102 BIOS. I tried flashing the 1205 when it came out and it screwed my system up and was a real pain trying to get back to an earlier revision. They keep coming out with one Beta BIOS after another but none of them ever become a final version, the last non-beta version was released in June '07. You can try the 1205 and see how it works for you but keep you fingers crossed. They also had a new one up which was 15xx but the took it off their site so the must have had too many problems with it. Just so you know 1103 is on their site and I've used that and it's stable.
