    Ok, I have some new, new settings. Remind me to post them later. These seem to be way more stable.

    As for the uniqueness of MAC addresses...they are not unique (randomized), but you are (hopefully) unlikely to encounter another computer on the same network with the same MAC address (DHCP servers love that...). One of my old instructors told me a story about how they bought some NICs from some company, and bought enough of them that they ran into the same MAC address on more than one NIC (the addresses were insufficiently randomized). But it ultimately doesn't matter, since most OSs will let you specify a different MAC address for the NIC than the one it ships with (if you really want to do that).

    Flashback has never worked on the two Hero boards I've tried to use it on thus far. Followed the instructions, but it just won't work. I'm starting to think it hates Sandisk USB drives or something. But I will say that upgrading from a programmed BIOS does work -> I programmed in the 1403 version, then used the UEFI's Flash program to download and upgrade to the 1501 version.

    What I'm tempted to do (and won't, because my soldering skills suck; need to apprentice myself to someone for like 6 months to learn to do it right) is add a DIP-8 socket, making the Winbond chip removable.
    Solder a seat like this ... and put the chip in... replace chip whenever you feel like it
    That should do the trick

    The BIOS chip has a header for SPI flash

    See the following recent thread:

    There is an 8+1 header on the motherboard that is used for factory flashing the BIOS chip on the C6H. I think that if the chip is corrupted and cannot be re-flashed even with an SPI EEPROM programmer, that you may be able to de-solder it or clip it out, and use this header to wire in a socket for replaceable chips. Then you can replace the chips whenever you like
