    BIOS Update A09 for AW17 over at dell drivers

    Fixes & Enhancements: [BIOS] Modify: 1. Update Microcode for CPU 306C3. Add: 1. Add 3DV License key for N15.

    Update and Enjoy! (for me the driver page is down) can anyone confirm?

    Edit* After later confirming download page is back up.

    download link works for me but I accessed the dell.ca site so that might make a difference.

    EDIT: Update completed successfully. Not really sure what to expect for changes if anything, will monitor and inform if any problems.

    I hoping the update will cool my GPU down a bit, I still think mid to high 80's is high temp when playing BF4 but I do have everything on Ultra...Haven't ran into any problems but am worried for future...

    There are no problems you should be looking for. Bios updates are mainly under the good updates providing performance fixes and code optimizations. I recommend an update if you feel comfortable with doing so.
