    I highly suggest you do not use any BIOS older than 14, but I've included them if you absolutely need to run an older version for whatever reason. Flash at your own risk. I've personally tested 18ZZZ only. There's very little chance of failure for other versions, however. Worst thing that'll happen is some option ROM throws an error, in which case you flash back to a stock BIOS and post here so I can figure out why and possibly correct it (or put in an older working version of that option ROM instead).

    If you do not require the PXE ROM to display its "press Shift+F10 to configure..." message twice after the Intel AHCI OROM's initialization message during boot up, go to the CMOS setup screen, then Integrated Peripherals, then Onboard PCI Device, and set - Invoke Boot Agent to Disabled for both Network Controller 1 and Network Controller 2.

    If for some reason you require a beta BIOS version available from the lejabeach website updated, please send me a PM.

    Drivers:


    Utilities:

    abit IP35 Pro motherboard & uGuru manual

    Click here for my latest BIOS compilation, which improves compatibility with SSDs.

    The latest BIOS compilation is still current. Neither Realtek nor JMicron have released new option ROMs, and Intel dropped support for the ICH9R chipset in their Rapid Storage Technology ROMs ages ago so the ROM 8.5.0.1030 and the driver 10.8.0.1003 WHQL are the final versions which will work with the abit IP35 Pro.

    I was able to boot at defaults with Crucial 4GB Ballistix DDR2 PC2-6400 (4x1GB) CAS4. I used the Thermalright Ultima 90 with an S-Flex 120mm fan with no problems.

    Re: **Official ABIT IP-35 Pro Review/Overclock/Guide Thread**

    This is a really nice board, I wish I could have one as well as an MSI P35 Platinum to play with and compare .

    They are both my favorite motherboards right now.

    Can anyone that is more knowledgable then me answer me this question, what are the differences between these four motherboards -

    Between Abit IP35 dark raider and IP35 Pro, other then the obvious crossfire support and better heatpipe.

    Between MSI P35 Neo 2 and P35 Platinum other then the heatpipe.

    My Neo 2 just has a sticker stuck over the Platinum logo on the board, and even the boot screen says P35 platinum. Is the extra &#163;40-50 for the premium versions really worth the extra money?

    I'm just asking because i'm curious and would want to buy all four of them if I could lol.

    Re: **Official ABIT IP-35 Pro Review/Overclock/Guide Thread**

    don't know about the MSIs but between the abit IP35 & the IP35 Pro the Pro gains:
    uGuru (best hardware monitor/fan control solution of any mobo manufacturer - also does overclocking in Windows)
    2nd physical x16 (electrically x4) PCI-E slot
    2nd Gigabit LAN
    all capcitors are solid as opposed to just the important ones.
    onboard power & reset switches plus external clearCMOS
    different chipset cooling
    slightly richer BIOS

    probably forgotten something but you get the jist.
    The extras are definitely worth something - the question is how much.
    The price differential recently on SCAN's Today Only offers has been about &#163;30 between the IP35 & the Pro version which is probably towards the top end of what the extras are worth to me (someone else may be different).

    Re: **Official ABIT IP-35 Pro Review/Overclock/Guide Thread**

    Yea I would like to have all solid state capacitators, and uGuru sounds really good. I prefer to do all my OC'ing in bios though.

    MSI has a software called Dual Core centre, but vista blocks it from accessing vbios settings because it isnt digitally signed :x

    But its still useful for displaying CPU temp.

    Going by the reviews on anandtech and on the specifications, It would seem the Abit I35-pro (Gold award) makes the best enthusiast board over the MSI platinum, and the MSI Neo 2 makes the best budget board at £66 (silver award).

    The first motherboard I looked at was the Intel iP35 express. I read the specification sheet and it locks memory voltage at 1.8v and locks timings to default (Only compatible with 4-4-4-12 and 5-5-5-15 memory @ 1.8v).

    Note to intel - stop making motherboards please

    I very nearly bought it too because the box looked nice....

    Re: **Official ABIT IP-35 Pro Review/Overclock/Guide Thread**

    I'm loving this thread. so very handy.
    I can see above that it supports the Corsair 4GB XMS2 DHX DDR2 PC2-6400 (2x2GB) CAS5 ram,
    but will it support the CAS4 version?

    or are they virtually identical anyway, but with the CAS4 version rated at a different voltage and with tighter timings?

    thanks.

    You can add Artic Cooler Pro 7 and Geil Black Dragon PC6400 memory to your list if you like
