What issues are you having? I have the A7N8X and don't seem to have any. Still tempting to update the BIOS...

Feel free to direct me to another post (of yours stating the problem) because I'm feeling a bit too lazy search!

I updated just cus im a suckah for having the latest thing. I haven't had any problems yet. Used the alt-f2 feature to flash it.

how do you update the bios... save the BIOS file you download onto a floppy, put it in.. then press the ALT-F2 and then it takes you from there?

Is THG Slightly Slacking??

Yup, but make sure you write down the file name on a piece of paper, cus it's gonna ask you for it. It decompresses awdflash.exe from the bios and takes it from there. It's actually really easy, don't need a boot up disk or anything. Just save the file to the floppy **WRITE DOWN THE FILE NAME ON A PIECE OF PAPER** and then when bios is booting up, at the bottom it'll tell you to press alt-f2, do it, then you're ready to go.

I decided to try the Asus Update Utility that runs in
Windows. It worked just fine to my amazment. So far,
the 1002 beta bios runs just as stable as the 1001G
version. The only thing I noticed is that it sets the FSB
spectrum to 50%, whatever that means, and won't let you
change it. Seems like a winner.

In the advanced settings under the DDR timing options,
there is one thats says FSB Spread Spectrum with the
options of Disabled, .50%, and 1.00% and under that is AGP
Spread Spectrum with the same options. I've never seen
these before and have no clue what they actually do. The
manual doesn't say.

By the way, did anyone else notice that you have alot more
IRQ's with the Nforce2? I've got them all the way up to
22 instead of 15. Is this something exclusive to Nforce2
or has it been around awhile and I'm just behind the curve?

Okay, I read up on the Spread Spectrum. None of my
previous systems had that option. Anyways, 1001G bios
let you choose the FSB Spread Spectrum option and the
new 1002 beta automatically sets it at .50% and won't
let it be changed.
