    I would just like to stress that there is little profit in updating the bios in a perfectly stable and happy system. DO NOT fix something that is not broken is my motto.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    Thanks for the heads up - I was beginning to get worried thinking with the impending release of X99 that Asus was not going to give us X79 users any more love

    It looks like a big step up - its not just from 4802 to 4804 but a jump up to 4901 so I assume its got some significant fixes in it.

    That's pretty impressive, actually. They have truly been supporting this MB and I really feel I've been getting my money's worth.

    So Far so good, I hoping one of the "stability improvements" was a fix to the usb Joystick disconnect issue in Windows hate [I mean 8}

    was worth the update - its resolved the one issue I've been having for a long time with both this board and the maximus V gene and formulas - my Razer Ourburous mouse now works perfectly on boot up!

    Looks like it does resolve USB issues

    Why do I with the new Sandy Bridge processors Bios not spend 4200 in graphics tests stress?
    have not solved that problem with any of the new Bios.
    we have to use Bios 4206 or earlier, do not let the new processor in 4200 stress tests of the graph.

    I think it's a huge failure that has not been solved nor do I think there is interest in solving.

    I have some USB-issues so I gave 4901 a try.

    I didn't do any extensive testing, but I had big problems with overclocking, the board would just freeze with error code "00" after rebooting with the new settings.

    So I went back to 4804 on which my overclock is perfectly stable.

    It's sad that we can't have the changelogs, I am curious whats new, and with changelogs it would be easier to decide if the upgrade is worth it or not.
