    Hi I flashed the most recent BIOS on the 8KTA3+Pro

    The only available FSB Settings are 100-123 Mhz , no 133 Mhz availbale...!?!

    Any Hints? Bug in the Bios? On failure on the board?

    This strange but I got the opposite results. After installing the
    8K203409 BIOS I can only select 133-180 Mhz (but only 133-154 Mhz work
    because I have PC150 memory). I can no longer select the lower bus

    I can't think of anything I might have done differently than you.

    I have gone back and forth between the 10-19-2001 and 4-9-2003 BIOS
    trying to decide if there is any difference in stability. (They are
    about the same). This installation I forgot to turn off the
    overclocking as the notes mentioned but no problems.

    I did use the built-in flash option (ALT-F2 at boot), having the BIOS
    bin file on a floppy, rather than using the update procedure,
    UPDATE.BAT + Award.

    That's the only thing I can think of that I might have done

    I have normal pc133 memory modules in use ...
    I also used the alt-f2 option to flash the bios, when i tried to go
    back to the old saved bios version it said that it would be the wrong
    bios version - so no backstep was possible.

    do you have an older bios version? could you mail me that... maybe i
    can go back to 133 mhz fsb...

    Thanks Steve, got it. But I also received a more recent BIOS from the
    Epox Support today... But I´m not allowed to publish it or send it to
    anybody else. But I´ll post the result if it solves the Problem ...

    Everybody else with the same problem might contact Epox then ...

    please tell me what multiplcators you can select with the latest official
    bios _and_ the one you received from Epox. I have the one from 050202 and
    only have 12,13 and 14 but I need 15 for my forthcoming XP 2400+.

    Is it working now?

    Can you at least tell us the name/date of the new 8KTA3PRO BIOS (so
    that I can search for it in the future)?

  8. I did, they said that the latest version had a bug. They offered to send
    a beta version by mail but I did not get it yet.
    Unfortunately the old one was not saved to the disk, so if anyone could
    send me an older version I would be happy as well.

  11. This is the version I used so far. It would be nice if you could send it.
    Meanwhile I received a beta version from epox which seems to work. It is
    named 8K203528.BIN. As Jan already pointed out epox does not allow to
    give it away.

    I know it's a little late (coz last post was somewhere in 2003), but I'm looking for the latest BIOS again.
    To be precise, it's for the EP-8KTA3+ (NOT the Pro!), so I should need the 8k203409 (09.04.2003).

    Anyone who can help me getting it?
