I've got an 8150, so the update is for both stability and steam playability. I was on f4, which is wonky and has some sort of problem with some Steam based games. Which is no good at all for a Total War junkie. To be clear, Im a noob at pc maintenance, not use. I've got a tech-head friend who usually takes care of these things for me, but I decided not to bother him for once. Anyway, I was going to wait for a final f6, but Gigabyte tech support told me to go ahead and upgrade to f6e.
I've actually just figured it out; was coming back to ask someone to kill the thread when I saw your reply. I just got caught up on the exact choice of words that my tech support rep used.
I had never messed with bios before. Was pleased to find that everything was easy and went smoothly.
Running f6e with no hitches. Yet.
Thanks for your attention though, Raiddinn.
