Alternative download point on this page:

http://www.prawlings.net/tech/files.htm

Dates and file size seem very much like the 1005 Beta3 BIOS.

I've just flashed my P4G8X Deluxe to 1005 via the built-in ez-flash, no problems so far.

SATA harddrive detection is much quicker upon boot-up. (cool)

But does anyone know or have anymore information relating to "Improve AGP card margins".

What do they actually mean by this?

Thanks in-advance...

Hey Pikakid4,
The tweaked bios from x86-secret.com works really great. It definetly fixes the problem with the 143 fsb issue. I've been using x86 bios's for about two months now and they work awesome. Your timings are right on. Cpu-z verifies it for you. I highly recommend them.
