      5 Bios rev in 68 day's (32nm or not) all Official?? LOL  Some would argue that EVGA is doing all they can to correct issues as fast as they can, I don't find myself buying into that. Sometimes it better to do nothing than to do something just for the sake of doing something.
      Make no mistake, This is coming from pleased and loyal EVGA customer but these revisions are getting out of hand. Fix the issues, not some but all and release the bios.

    E762 & 759

     So far so good with the BIOS 59. They seem the same as BIOS 58 that was posted over at kingpin on the 15th. Thanks for continuing updates evga.

    You must burn the image to a CD to use it and it will still look empty.

    What _folder_?  The download is just a naked ISO file.  Burn that _as an image_ and Bob's your uncle.

    I just tried it for my 758: E758_59.iso  launch nero, recorder -> burn image, or just double-click the ISO and let whatever utility pops up burn it.

    My first thought as well.  On the surface, it looks the same except for the RAID fix.
     
    I'll add it to the BIOS Changelog for the E759 shortly.

    What I mean is theres nothing to burn in the folder that I have downloaded. When i click on the link its a winrar file i save that to my desktop then extract the file to my desktop but there's nothing in it

    That WinRar file is a .ISO - an image.  You don't extract it, you just burn the image to a CD using burning software (like imgburn:  http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download)

    The microcode update was for the 32nm 6-Core CPUs, to address issues that intel found potentially causing the system to lock up.

    Updated BIOS, so far haven't noticed any changes except I've also noticed my idle/load temps are slightly higher, very slightly, like 1-2 degrees, but it's there.
    Also, and to my continued dismay, my computer still will not recognize all 12 GB of RAM on my system if my RAM is clocked any higher than 1333 MHZ.  It only shows 8 GB available (or 4 GB available if I installed 6).  I know this problem has been discussed repeatedly on these boards, and some say it's due to after market coolers being too tight, or bent pins.  I have NO bent pins, and I've reseated the cooler with various tightness countless times to no effect.  Changed BIOS voltages, doesn't make a difference.  If I clock my RAM at or under 1333 12 of 12, over 1333 8/12.  My RAM is rated at 1600 9/9/9/24 at 1.65, but I can't get close to that.  I really wish EVGA would address this issue!

    Still have the oddity where IRQs are assigned to video card/cards with multimedia devices. bios 51 and earlier did not do this. 56 and 59 only ones so far.

    Yes, it is absolutely ridiculous, as it works with "A" batch Gulftown CPUs. While I don't see this problem in Gigabyte and Asus, why EVGA?

    • Corrects issue with boot screen hang on some RAID 0 SSD setups
    I wonder if this will address the hang issues I've been experiencing with my Samsung Spinpoint F1 RAID 0 HDD setup. I'll test these out in the morning, thanks for the post Jacob.


    Dude i get a hang with the same 2 HDD's ur using. It's not the mobo BIOS causing it. I notice u have the same soundcard as me also AND logitech speakers. Therein lies the problem.
     
    When i hook my logitech Z-5500's up to my X-fi Titanium via a digital optical cable, my computer hangs upon shutdown while Dolby Digital Live or DTS Connect is switched on. For some reasn the Dolby encoder and the soundcard refuse to turn off when i tell me computer to shutdown. Then it just hangs at the 'Shutting Down' message screen.
     
    The solution is simple: 1) wait for Creative to make a patch so that your card knows when the frak to shutdown. 2) Before you tell ur pc to shutdown, go into Creative Control Panel and insto Settings then manually switch the Dolby encoder Off. Then shutdown will be successful.

    I have same problem with 12 Gb of RAM running over 1066. Thing is that timing gets better as memory DDR1600 runs at 1066. It has nothing to do with CPU or some pins bent -> It is simply Intel Design Bug or we need appropriate BIOS update to fix it. Don't call it bug it's just limitation.
