    Bios 702 was removed from Download by ASUS. 802 and 901 are the latest with 901 being BETA. I know you can still down load the Bios 702 from the link you provided but from the Main web site it was removed because of problems!

    below is link to asus ftp for the maximus extreme software and bios

    ftp://ftp.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socke...ximus_Extreme/


    latest bios as of 26/11/07 is 802 which i have installed no really obvious benefit but is penryn ready as it allows for .5 multipliers,
    500+fsb no problem on this board as with most p35 and x38, really fast board for crossfire paired with ddr3, i can run the pc15000 at 2000mhz plus on this board and pass memtest in windows on stock volts which is 1.9v on these patriots at 9 9 9 28 , still exploring the bios really , lot in here ,

    if anyone knows of a new 901 beta bios

    anybody whos thinking of replacing the thermal paste on the northbridge do it before you use the board as the paste used set like rock once used a bit

    whipped this off the asus formula thread gives some good explanations of bios options
    http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets...spx?i=3156&p=4

    any other helpful info i'll post on here ,

    personally can't take my e6850 any higher than it was on my p5w dh just over 4 gig so maybe cpu limit or some other bios setting i haven't figured out although i can run this board at the 8 multiplier over 500fsb stably

    my p5e3 cant handle 500fsb, tough my cpu CAN handle 4ghz 16h stable..but not on this board! looking forward to play with this, its goin to be my wolfdale board when it gets out

    is it needed to change the paste on the nb?

    if you check on pc probe the ram seems to get overvolted so 1.9volt set in bios shows 1.97volt in pc probe , i would change the paste as on my motherboard it was like this, half on half off and on the s/bridge and crosslinks itr had those crappy thermal pads if you were going to put replacement paste on the mofsets use artic ceramic instead of artic silver 5 as its a non conductor, i am using the watercooled fusion block as well , seems a good motherboard to me always resumed from over ambitios overclocks, mines still a bit flakey yet still playing about with settings, theres so many

    I've had mine for a few days. Early observations:

    According to PC Probe, FSB Termination voltage seems to overvolt -- watch out for that one.

    403 has been the best overclocking bios for me so far.

    450 fsb with 1:2 ratio runs great off the 266 strap, nice low latencies.

    My first time taking a quad core (q6600) to 500 fsb.

    Also interested in this, currently have an E6850 maxed at 3.915 on a P5B Deluxe. Expecting my Maximus Extreme any day now, not sure weather to fork out for a Q6600, or maybe stick with E6850 and wait for 45nm? Also looking at that Cellshock Memory, seems to be getting good reviews!!
    New System : I5 2500K, P8P67 Pro, 2gig Cellshocks 1800 (some ripjaws on order), 2x Powercolor 4870's, 120gig Vertex 3 SSD, Corsair AX 1200W PSU, Swiftech Watercooling.

    Old System : QX9650 @ 450x9.5 (4275ghz), Maximus Extreme (Bios 1001), 2gig Cellshocks 1800 1:2 (7-7-7-15), 2x Powercolor 4870's, X-fi, 2x 32gig Mtron SSD's (Raid 0), Antec 1KW Quattro PSU, Swiftech Watercooling.

    i'd stick with the 6850 for now the new cheaper 45nm quads are out in roughly a month

    Im picking it up today at the postal office..
    hope that i will mount it today and get it ready

    I know i can do 4ghz stable atleast on any board..
    and 4.2 in 3dmark benches etc..
    will post some results later..

    And yeah, the cellshocks are great!! its board limited so far... but 2000+ is no problem for the mem itself!
    couse i have crash in windows at 2000+ its probably the NB that cant handle it.. couse it is error free in memtest

    EDIT: you above said, that the temp showed, MB and NB, i thought that MB temp was the NB temp? so what are the MB temp then if not NB..?

    glad to see your in the maximus club the 803 bios is a lot better than previous , just superpi'd at over4.2ghz at 1.6volt , with the other bioses i needed around 1.65 volt just to be stable over 4ghz so whatever asus has done has done the job, if you get an error with pc probe after a crash just reinstalling it solves it, loadline calibrator works rock solid shows slightly lower values than reported in bios but rock solid and never moves, not a lot more time tonight to play about with it but seems a winner to me

    i think the motherboard temp is the pwm measurement
