    I found that bios 1003 will not allow disabling of "Spread Spectrum" and
    with 1005 it allows it. I guess there are alot more differences in the
    versions than what Asus lists.

    Better question:
    What the heck is Spread Spectrum?

    FSB Spread Spectrum varies the FSB speed by set amount (.50% or 1.0%).
    Before this bios, it was stuck at .50%, so my cpu speed would vary by +/-
    ..50% at every boot. Sometimes it would 2090mhz, sometimes 2075mhz.
    From what I understand this is done because of EMF interference or
    However, for stability, and sometimes performance, it's best to keep this
