Not much change with the IC7 new BIOS. BUT, the IS7 lowers both PWM and CPU temp reporting.

The CPU temp is lower by 4-5 C down to an unbelievable numbers or too good to be true.

IS7 P4 2.6C @1.7 Volt 3.32Ghz - 30C idle; 47C load using stock copper heatsink at 106 Watts. Should I be happy? NO.

hmmm.. so, did the temp reading before was incorrect? or does the new bios falsely report temps?

watch out now when doing HSF reviews when comparing with previous results

The new BIOS is incorrect with IS7 because extermal probe temp now has wider margin. This particular board had identical temp with one of the IC7; now they are different.

Sure thing to be aware of the difference when doing reviews.

Ok I flashed it this morning and I got some nasty problems.

I couldn't get my proc back on 3,4 like i ussed to.
So I put it on 3,2 but when I came home this noon my pc seemed to have rebooted. It was only folding when I left. Also in windows he said that serious errors have happend. :s

I think I'm gonna put my old one back on.

Sorry to hear that. Did not affect mine.

My 2.6C could never make it to 3.4. 255FSB is the max regardless of voltage.

Ok, I put the old bios back. But the problem is still the same :/ If I overclock the whole thing is unstable and keeps rebooting and giving bluescreens. :|

This is maximum I could get once in windows but now it's even unstable when i overclock under 255 FSB.


So I put everthing in bios on default settings. Then I got this message: "Cpu is unworkable or has changed. Please recheck CPU - Soft menu."

Everything was standard. I gave it a little more VCore and then it went fine. So default VCore didn't work. When I check on AbitEQ I see that my VCore is between 1.49 and 1.54 what normaly 1.55 should be. Could it be that PSU is broken or something?
