    That's the idea...
    Maybe somealien want to volunteer to rebuild that Bios (specially the part of the ongoing process of human self-destruction?)? ;)

    Thanks in advance!

    As promised, a detailed explanation for the irregularities in the file posting:

    We are migrating our internal project management platform and are working through new processes to upload files to the Drivers and Downloads page. As of now we are temporarily unable to upload updated drivers and files to the site by appropriate platform. As a workaround, we are uploading the files to the site without tying them to the product page. We should have the migration complete and files in the appropriate places soon. In the meantime, thank you for your patience and understanding.

    As to the specific issues with this BIOS posting- date, missing platform under Compatibility, etc., those are one-off oversights that have nothing to do with the migration issues. Someone just overlooked a couple of fields. Hopefully we can correct that issue sooner rather than later.

    Thank you for the updates and thank you to Dell for the support. For me both bios A05 and the recent Dell video drivers are working great (with the exception of brightness control).

    Do you have any updates on this question:

    No answers on AMD reference drivers. I know this is a big concern of Alienware Major Domo #2, Frank A., but as of yet we have nothing definitive to report.

    I have my opinions, which professional prudence suggests I keep to myself. ;)

    So every system should update to this BIOS regardless of having thermal shutdown?

    Have just updated to A05 and ran FurMark after a cold boot and the fans are on which is a good sign:)
    Just ran Heaven and score is about the same. The fans are not as loud as they were before.
