    Man, I miss erawneila. He used to be such a great source of info about this sort of thing. I'm not sure what Modify GPIO setting to correct DRAM reset really means.

    GPIO = General Purpose Input/Output

    There may have been an issue with the DRAM timing... Not sure either. Has anyone run some memory benches and compared to A03 BIOS?

    Hey, as long as it works and nothing was broken. ;)

    I guess I won't be needing to install this one as there is no difference in the fan table..
    When I upgrade to A03, I just hear fan spinning all the time.
    I'll just stay with A02, so sad.
