    Crosshair V Formula - New Bios out! Version 1102

    Hi,

    there is a new Bios available for the Crosshair V!

    http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD...mula/#download

    Does anybody have a changelog for this? Improved system stability doesn't say that much ;-)

    Hopefully they built in a new RAID Option Rom.

    Cheers,

    Christian

    Thanks for the update!
    The Raid option ROM is the same as the prior versions.

    This bios works as well ( overclocking included ) as all the others on a 1100T .

    No, Its still a very old driver, Theres only one driver for the chipset that our boards use and its the USB-Filter driver, Its for USB 1.0 not showing up in the add-remove icon.

    Even the latest driver 11.12 from AMD currently has no drivers in the driver package for the southbridge driver, First time ive seen this happen. I opened up the ASUS latest one and the USB filter driver is dated from 2010. The driver 11.11 SB driver had a date of 8th month of 2011.

    So another words we dont need to install any chipset drivers. Unless you didnt pre-install the AHCI driver upon WIndows 7 installation.

    I did look in the latest driver package 8.95 aka 12.x and it includes a USB-Filter driver from the 12th month of 2011. I read the RTF inside it and it only mentions the USB-Filter driver being used on the SB800 series, So our SB900 series doesnt even need them.

    The only driver I use is the AMD SATA Controller driver. And the latest on that is version 1.2.1.321 and its dated 10/28/2011

    I have modified 1102 with the most current option rom I found from MSI 990FX-GD80 Bios Version 11.8

    Old (Asus 1102) Version: 3.2.1540.44
    Updated Bios AMD Option Rom: 3.3.1540.14

    I just ordered this board and its on the way. I have no way to test the modified bios. I am not sure what the forum rules are but I am happy to share the modified bios if someone is willing to try it. Send me a PM.

    Updated OPTION ROM Bios is working!

    GREAT to hear. Thanks for your feedback.

    Can you do some benchmark with the new ROM and confirm all the caching/write forward options are now available?


    Since this modified bios is confirmed working, I am posting a link to my bios. Please remember flashing involves risk (bricking your board, loss of data on your RAID array etc.). Have a recovery option in place before flashing.

    1102 - Updated AMD Option ROMs

    Changes Made:

    1. Updated AMD Option ROM to 3.3.1540.14 (Source: MSI 990FXA-GD80)
    2. Updated AsMedia Option ROM to 0.951 (Source: MSI X79A-GD65)

    * - Includes Asus DOS Flash Tool


    Please provide feedback on RAID performance with updated ROMs

    sure, can you tell me how to check the caching/write forward options ? I currently have port 1 and 2 in raid0 ( two intel ssd's ) and port 3 and 4 in raid raid0 ( two 1Tb samsung hdd's ). Port 5 and 6 are conected to atapi devices. I cannot change any option in the current raid volumes. I think I'll remove the 1TB hdd's and replace them with other disks I have around, do another array and see if I am presented with caching options..
    will post back.
