    Hi Folks,

    I'm typing to you now through a AMD Duron 1400Pro+ (whatever the Pro is
    about) soldered to Elite's K7SOM mainboard and I'm wondering about updating
    the (Award) bios. I'm not having any system problems and Elite's site warns
    about unnecessary bios upgrading when things are going good.

    So my question is: What advantage is there to performing a bios update on
    this board? Is there any reason to do so if everything is running great?

  2. Many of the bios updates are for supporting newer CPU's and that's not
    an issue here (ECS made sure of that!) so if everything's working
    leave it alone.


    Replace "nospam" with "telis" to reply.

    Indeed. Also, they use cheap parts, and you don't know how many
    read/write cycle their EPROM can handle.
