Flashed my P2B yesterday (from Windows using Asus utility). I will try my Tualatin again (didn't work with BETA 002).

Anybody know what the beta3 entails? I never tested, but there was sord that the 002 still didn't correct the multiplier bug. I'm wondering if this is another attempt. Just curious if anyones found any information on the new beta, I haven't been able to find any.

By the overclocker forum, the new bios should solve P2B multiplier problem, but still it's not confirmed for 11 multiplier.

I would test it with 12 multiplier (Tualatin 1.2 ) next saturday.

So I've tried Celeron Tualatin 1.2 on my ASUS P2B ver 1.10 with proper voltage regulator and I can confirm that multiplier 12 is working well. I have to make AK4 - AK16 bridge yet, 'cos it freezes at Windows start.

I have a 1.4 Ghz Powerleap CPU upgrade processor who's stepping (4) is not included in the most recent ASUS P2B BIOS (1014.003). My processor's CPUID is 6B4. Has anyone been able to update this BIOS with an additional CPU microcode update so that the BIOS is compatible with my processor?

There was a post further up in the forum about adding tualatin support. Apple_rom's utilities modified my p2b-s bios and added 6b4.
