    Any idea what "critical microcode updates from Intel" means? Maybe this addresses the Intel Speedstep issue in Vista not throttling the CPU down?
    Oh yeah - what's the "Dell 1505" card? Is that the Dell draft-N 1500 card they mean?

    a new bios labelled urgent was also just released today for I6400 / E1505.

    I hope that the microcode updates from intel fix up the buzzing noise of the core 2 duo's.... or maybe the speedstep issue? or maybe both?

    Ran the update on my E1705, and all seems to be well. Hopefully this helps with the memory BSODs.
