    Hello all:

    I have the P4C800E-Deluxe and it is OC'ed to 3.32+ from the P4-2.4C SL6Z3
    in there. I also have DDR memory running at 550MHZ!

    I have dual 80 GB SATA drives in RAID0 (Intel Controller).

    So, my question is...I never flashed the BIOS from the 1014 this MoBo came
    with. Will I gain anything from going to the 1019 rev3 that people say is

    No! BIOS upgrades are for fixing problems that occur in a given user's
    specific setup. They do NOT offer performance upgrades. If it ain't broke,
    don't fix it.
    Note: You may not be aware that frequently BIOS version upgrades go wrong
    during execution, leaving you with a corrupt BIOS and a dead motherboard.

    Thank you Dave. I did order a BIOS Savior so there would not be much of
    a chance of making the MoBo not boot. I had heard that the 1019 makes
    the system boot faster.

    Where are you finding 1019 for the P4C800E-Deluxe? The highest I've been
    able to find is 1018.

    Incidentally, "frequently" for version upgrades that go sour is overstating
    it immensely. I myself have done more than hundred without incident, and I
    think that that is the common experience. Upgrades may not always include
    performance increases (although 1018 in the P4C800E-Dlx does offer CPU
    unlocking), but they do often incorporate bug fixes. Thanks and all good

    That's the most misleading statement I've ever heard! I've yet to have a
    bios update go wrong...and updates do effect system performance.
    Just follow the directions.

    If I am not too wrong, the p4c800e deluxe has a bios repair on the cd or
    disk if a problem happens
