    Not sure why you want old BIOS?


    What version of BIOS did your MB ship with?  there might be a sticker with version number on MB
     
    Best to keep 1 BIOS stock - for recovery
     
    I can only find threads for the FTW MB with  BIOS ver 1.05 & older
     
    Best to ask EVGA Customer service

    I found what i was looking for v0.00, this was a BIOS that EVGA in the past gave to people on request.  This BIOS makes my system feel much more responsive overall.
     
    cdnXevgaXcom/bios/Z490/E499_flashtool_10202T00.zip


    And version v1.04 is the BIOS included on the EVGA branded USB flash drive but isnt available to download anywhere so i uploaded here.

    thank you for sharing the link and your experience using v0.00.
     
    I'm using gskill, "F4-4266C17D-32GTRSB", and have had a very poor experience with memory training.
    If I only set XMP profile and reboot, SA and IO go extremely high when left on auto. I saw 1.5v+ on SA! I immediately changed to manual. It seems wrong that QVL listed memory would allow SA/IO to go so high on "auto" voltages. IDK.
     
    I understand high memory frequency depends on many factors, however, in my experience, memory training is very strange.
     
    Are you using SR or DR RAM?

    Does this bios work with normal Z490 Dark, non KP?

    Also noteworthy, 1.06 was the best bios for me, little faster in benches and gaming compared to both 1.04 and 1.07.
